Lai Mohammed need not preempt the tribunal, his actions are contemptuous — LP responds



Lai Mohammed need not preempt the tribunal, his actions are contemptuous -- LP responds

A few days after claiming that President Muhammadu Buhari had lied about the results of the 2023 presidential election, the Labour Party has launched another attack, this time targeting Lai Mohammed, the Minister of Information and Culture, for supporting the President’s assertion.


It was “heart-wrenching to hear the Honourable Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, still progressing with that warped, illogical and incongruous concept,” according to the LP acting National Publicity Secretary, Obiora Ifoh, on Sunday.

The Labour Party referred to the just completed presidential election as grossly manipulated and anything but free, fair, and legitimate in a statement released on Sunday.

The statement further read, “We would rather not join issues with a man who is famous for constantly prescribing doses of expired and ineffectual propaganda to Nigerians.

“His ill-fated and hugely failed trip to the United Kingdom and United States where he attempted to redeem the grossly battered democratic credentials of this present administration; spending millions of taxpayers money to defend an indefensible action is yet another tragedy of President Buhari’s 8 years leadership.

“It is only the blind that will continue to insist that the 2023 presidential election which was massively rigged was free, fair and credible.


“The election witnessed unprecedented magnitude of violence, ballot snuffing, snatching and manipulations of result from the collation centres using thugs, security agencies, which included police, army amongst others.

“All these issues and a lot more were captured, well documented and have been taken to the appeal tribunal and the matters are ongoing. Mr. Lai Mohammed need not preempt the tribunal as his actions are contemptuous and could be used against him.

“We just want the Honourable Minister to know that by rigging the 2023 general election, himself, his party, All Progressives Congress and the leader of the party, President Buhari have murdered sleep and they do not deserve peace”.
