- Reminds minister of what VP Osinbajo said about him.
- Says he has never been associated with treasonable tendercies.
The presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar, has reacted to comments made by the Presidency suggesting that he and his party are sabotaging the Muhammadu Buhari-led government, saying they are lies.
iDONSABI reports that Lai Mohammed, the Minister of Information, on Wednesday lamented that Atiku and his party were doing everything to overheat the polity, describing their alleged actions as an act of treason.
Reacting to the claims made by the minister, Atiku in a statement by his media aide, Paul Ibe said, “It is not surprising that such a despicable lie is emanating from Mr Lai Mohammed, President Buhari’s aptly named Minister of Information.”
“Lai Mohammed is so associated with lies that even Vice President Yemi Osinbajo said, on Monday, May 13, 2019, as follows: “People like Lai Mohammed, Abba Kyari, Adamu Adamu they are usually very well behaved during the Ramadan. But I’m not even sure that that is true anymore.”
He noted that when there is a situation where even those who employed Mohammed know him as a lair, who will even lie during the holy month of Ramadan, then Nigerians shouldn’t be surprised at this latest lie.
“Mr Lai Mohammed is only being clever by half when he says “It beggars belief that a candidate who prides himself as a democrat can so allow desperation to becloud his sense of propriety to such an extent that he will be associating with anti-democratic forces or making inflammatory statements.
“Atiku Abubakar is a man of peace and a thoroughbred democrat. It is preposterous that those who threatened to ‘soak the dog and the baboon in blood’ are now audacious enough to point the finger at lifelong democrats. Truly, if the farmer does not raise the alarm on time, the thief will accuse him of being a thief.
“How can a man who wined and dined with Nigeria’s most brutal dictator, how can a man who overthrew a democratically elected President and held a grudge against him even in death (as evidenced by the empty condolence register he left in Sokoto, last year) accuse a man who has never been as much as associated with such tendencies, of being an anti-democrat?,” he querried. than sticky glue.
