Minister of Information, Lai Mohammed is in big trouble as the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar has demanded for his arrest for raising a false alarm that the PDP and its presidential candidate were planning to upstage the government of President Muhammadu Buhari.
Atiku, in a statement on Thursday, May 23rd, 2019 by his Media Adviser, Paul Ibe, said;
“It is very unsettling that senior administration officials, especially those who are the mouthpiece of government will make reckless but calculated comments to tarnish the image of Atiku Abubakar and government will sit idly on it.”
“With the conclusion reached by Premium Times’ investigative reporting that there is no evidentiary proof to back the claim by Lai Mohammed that the opposition was planning to upstage the government, we demand that the information minister should be arrested for raising false alarm and an apology rendered to Atiku Abubakar and the PDP.”
“We wish to blow the whistle as an early warning alert of the grandiose scheme being put together by some unscrupulous elements aimed at jeopardising the reputation of His Excellency Atiku Abubakar in the coming days and weeks.”
“Towards this end, and for the umpteenth time, we call on the federal government to be awake to its responsibilities of providing security and ensuring peace, and to desist from actions and utterances that are capable of exposing our fault lines.”
