My father named me Lai, but I have never lied before – Lai Mohammed

by on November 9, 2017

Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed has challenged those calling him a ‘liar’ to come forward with concrete facts to prove that he has ever lied.

He said “I have two burdens. The first is that I happen to be the face of the opposition, and PDP has not forgiven me, and I do not think they will ever forgive me.

I think they look at the magnitude of what has happened to them, and they hold me solely responsible; which is not fair.

But, I did my bit. Now becoming the face of government again, it is automatic to them that whatever comes from Lai Mohammed, we must shoot it down as fake news and a lie.

Incidentally, my father gave me the name Lai, also. So, it makes it very easy for them to make me a liar. But what I challenge them every time is, please, give me one thing I said that is not true. I have never told lies before.

Emotionally, you may not agree with me, but in terms of facts and figures, I have never said anything that they can be disputed. You do not have to like it, but you cannot deny that they are facts.”

    No! Your father named you OLAYIWOLA or OLAYIDE now shortened to LAI. But No adult in the world has never told a lie (constructive or destructive). The Honorable Minister should have qualified his assertion by adding the prefix “While in public office” …. never told a lie.
