‘A Leprous Finger’: Arewa Request Disciplinary Action Against Lai For Abdulrahm

60

By NewsDigest Arewa Youth Frontiers says Information Minister Lai Mohammed has only recurred to his antics of “destroying anything good” by calling Kwara state governor, Abdulrahman Abdulrazak, a “one-chance” governor because he had not been allowed to function as a kingmaker in the state. Two weeks ago, Mr Mohammed said he regretted throwing his weight behind the incumbent in the 2019 Kwara gubernatorial election, adding that the party had been warned not to support the governor who had now turned out to be “one-chance.” “It beats our imagination why a governor that has revitalized Agriculture, revived moribund industries, constructed roads in all nooks and crannies of the state and empowered the youths would be described as a ‘one chance’ governor,” said Mohammed Hussaini, Arewa’s coordinator. Mr Hussaini said Lai’s vituperations were hardly surprising since the governor had chosen not to dance to his tune or regard him as a kingmaker. The Information Minister recently found himself at loggerheads with statesmen after he credited himself with financing the party’s campaign in 2019. The sum faciitated, according to Lai Mohammed, totalled N150 million. “Nobody gave the party a dime for logistics apart from what I gave,” Mr Mohammed said. Members of the Kwara house of assembly have since described Mr Mohammed’s claim as an “odious lie”, and challenged him to name the beneficiaries of his support. Arewa insists it is obvious that the Minister was trying to cast aspersion on the pedigree of the governor with his “lies”. “We all knew how Lai came to national limelight. It is glaring he was a nobody, besides the CPC/APC spokesperson. So how come did he finance the party in the state? Was it the allocation of the Federal Ministry of Information he used to finance the party in the state? We need answers,” said Mr Hussaini, who asked the Information Minister to come out clean. According to Arewa, Lai Mohammed has brought disrepute and shame to the party with his outburst and should be disciplined without delay by the National headquarters of the All Progressives Congress, APC. “We call on the national body of the APC to without delay suspend Lai Mohammed from the party so as to ensure the party sustains its popularity in the state,” he said. Mr Hussaini added that Lai Mohammed fitted into the category of leprous fingers who seek to destroy anything good and Governor Abdulrahman would do better not to be distracted by his antics.
