The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has mocked the Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, for describing the Kwara state government as a “One Chance.”
Naija News reports that the minister had described the Governor Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq-led APC government of Kwara state as treacherous, false-hearted and akin to ‘one chance’.
Reacting to the comment in a statement on Tuesday, the National Publicity Secretary of the party, Kola Ologbondiyan, commended Mohammed for the remark.
The PDP spokesman added that the remarks made by the minister also describes the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) as a party that thrives on lies, deception, stealing and acts of political banditry.
Ologbondiyan added that the statement by Mohammed is an appellation that covers the APC administration at the national and state levels across the country.
The statement reads: “Nigerians all know that ‘one chance’ is a term referring to a form of robbery in which assailants lure unsuspecting victims into their vehicle, pretending to be heading to a particular destination, only to rob and afterwards kill or abandon their victim to fate.”
“The declaration by Lai Mohammed therefore aptly fits, as the APC, at all levels, came into power through lies, false promises, deceptions and propaganda only to engage in reckless treasury looting, electoral malpractices, violation of the rights of Nigerians and reducing of our once thriving nation to world’s poverty capital.
“The PDP however invites Nigerians to note the declaration of members of the Kwara state House of Assembly who described Lai Mohammed as ‘a liar, who lies every day.’
“This declaration by members of the Kwara House of Assembly directly points to how the APC used the instruments of lies, false promises, deception and propaganda to gain access to power in 2015.
“It is also descriptive of how the APC administration has continued to use the same instruments of lies, falsehood and deceit as a policy direction in their stranglehold on our nation.
“In any case, the PDP demands that Lai Mohammed, as a minister, should come clean on how, in his own confession, he ‘single-handedly,” raised the huge sum of money, which he claimed he used to finance elections in Kwara state.
“This is particularly as the minister failed to give the details of the friends, politicians and families whom he claimed help him in ‘single-handedly,’ raising the said huge funds for his party.”
