I Have Never Told Lies Before, I Always Tell The Facts – Lai Mohammed
Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, says he has never lied before, challenging those branding him a liar to present concrete facts to prove their point.
He made this known on Wednesday during an interactive session with newsmen.
Mohammed said: ”I have two burdens. The first is that I happen to be the face of the opposition, and PDP has not forgiven me, and I do not think they will ever forgive me.
”I think they look at the magnitude of what has happened to them, and they hold me solely responsible; which is not fair.
”But, I did my bit. Now becoming the face of government again, it is automatic to them that whatever comes from Lai Mohammed, we must shoot it down as fake news and a lie
”Incidentally, my father gave me the name Lai, also. So, it makes it very easy for them to make me a liar. But what I challenge them every time is, please, give me one thing I said that is not true. I have never told lies before.”
The Minister of Information said opposition parties may not agree with him, but he has not said anything that can be disputed.
”Emotionally, you may not agree with me, but in terms of facts and figures, I have never said anything that they can be disputed. You do not have to like it, but you cannot deny that they are facts,” he said.
