Okupe Lied! Lai Mohammed Replies PDP Chief

The Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, has replied Doyin Okupe, the Special Adviser (Media) to the Director-General of the PDP Presidential Campaign Council, over a statement he released calling him a betrayer. According to Okupe, Senate President, Bukola Saraki should be credited for the appointment of Mohammed as a Minister.

Mohammed in a statement issued today in Abuja, however described Okupe’s claim as laughable, saying he owes only Buhari thank you for his appointment.

The minister said the entire statement by Okupe, “is nothing but fiction writing, for which he deserves a hall of infamy award (in the fiction writing segment).

“Not one of the claims he made in his statement is true,’’ Mohammed said.

He challenged Okupe to make available to Nigerians any evidence he might have to support his assertion that the President sought the permission of Saraki to appoint him as minister. Lobatan!
