Read What Nigerians Are Saying About Lai Mohammed.

Minister for Information, Lai Mohammed is currently, under heat, over the recent statement he made about Federal government’s expenses on Shiites Leader,  Ibrahim Elzakzaky.

In a video trending online, the minister asked not to be quoted before proceeding to say: “It costs the government about N3.5 million every month to feed him, Naija News reports.

Honestly, don’t quote me, but these are the facts.

“So please. We don’t want to inflame passion. The issue is a very sensitive matter. But that is the situation. The Islamic Movement of Nigeria are a different kettle of fish.” He said.

Naija News reports that the Federal government has seemingly been trending on controversial issues overtime, hence this time was just another occasion for Nigerians to express their criticism, all revolving round Lai’s role in Nigeria’s governance and for the President Muhammadu Buhari.

Aside from insults, they express disbelief and doubt over Federal government spokes man ‘s statement.
