Following attacks from its countrymen that most of the information delivered to general public appears unrealistic, the Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, has disagreed with critics said that he has never told a lie before.
He made this known to the public during an interactive session with journalists in Lagos yesterday.
The Minister of information and culture also challenged those branding him a liar to come forward with concrete facts disputing whatever he had said before.
In his words: “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.” he added.
