Lai Mohammed - BREAKING: FG issues statement on Obasanjo's looming arrest, Detention

The Nigerian Government has reacted to allegations by former President Olusegun Obasanjo that the government of President Muhammadu Buhari wants to accuse him of a crime on him and detain him.

PoliticsNGR gathered that in a statement issued on Friday, the Minister of Information, Lai Mohammed, described Obasanjo’s allegation as a “concoction of a mind worried by guilt”.

The statement reads:

“This administration will never engage in a frame-up of innocent citizens. That is neither in the character of President Muhammadu Buhari nor in that of his administration. Only the guilty should be worried. To paraphrase an African proverb, a man who has no wife cannot lose an in-law to the cold hands of death.

“The administration is also strongly committed to the tenets of democracy, including freedom of speech and the right to dissent. But we understand that those who, in their time, were untethered to those principles would find it hard to believe.

“Apparently, the impact of this proclamation was too much to bear by those who, through acts of omission or commission, helped to deepen the wounds inflicted by the blow of injustice that followed an election that was widely acclaimed to be free, fair and credible, hence they felt the need for a red herring that will distract the nation.

“Added to that is the frustration brought about by the fact that the contraption they have so much hyped as a freeway to power has failed to gain traction. Faced with this double tragedy, even the strongest of men may begin to succumb to a figment of their imagination. They may start crying wolf where there is none.”

    Lai Mohammed, lie, lie. Time will tell what you claimed that Buhari/APC (Anti People’s Congress) have achieved since 2015.

    Stop deceiving yourself & not suffering masses. What this government have succeeded to achieve for the masses it claimed it came to rescue is: HARDSHIP, SUFFERING, JOB LOSES, HUNGER, INCREASED KILLING OF INNOCENT NIGERIANS ACROSS THE NATION, FUEL PRICE HIKE, WEAK NAIRA(₦), the list is truly endless.

    I have been warning Buhari/APC since we brought them to power in 2015 after series of rejection at the polls by Nigerians to MAKE THE NAIRA (₦) STRONG AS THE DOLLAR ($), BRITISH POUND, EURO TO ENABLE THE F.G EFFECTIVELY MOBILIZE THE NATION’S HUGE HUMAN RESOURCES TO EFFICIENTLY HARNESS ITS ABUNDANT NATURAL RESOURCES SO THAT THE NATION’S ECONOMY CAN COMPETE FAVORABLY WITH OTHER GLOBAL ECONOMIES TO RAPIDLY INDUSTRIALIZE NIGERIA AND QUICKLY BETTER THE LOTS OF THE SUFFERING NIGERIAN MASSES LIKE THOSE OF THEIR COUNTERPARTS IN THE DEVELOPED & INDUSTRIALIZED COUNTRIES. And they refuse. Let see the magic you will do in the 2019 election. God has sent another “Messiah” to rescue the suffering Nigerian masses. Be on the watch & see the rescue of the suffering Nigerian masses.

    Atiku/Fayose are here already.

    SOME PEOPLE ARE SIMPLY DUMB. THEY ARE UNABLE TO SEE THROUGH THEIR HATRED THAT PRESIDENT BUHARI REMAINS THE BEST HOPE AND THE ONLY UNTAINTED CANDIDATE NIGERIA HAS FOR THE 2019 PRESIDENTIAL POLL.
