Former Governor of Ekiti State, Ayodele Fayose, on Tuesday, January 26, criticised the Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, for saying that the security situation in Nigeria is better now than it was in 2015 before the All Progressives Congress (APC) took over power from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
1st News had reported that Mohammed at a press conference in Abuja on Monday; said no matter what anyone says, the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari has done better in terms of security; especially when compared to the previous administration.
“I can say without hesitation that though Nigeria is facing security challenges; the situation is far better than what we met in 2015.
“I can tell you today that the armed forces, the police, and other security and intelligence agencies are ramping up their efforts to enhance the security of lives and property across the country, and the results are beginning to show. There is no doubt that we are much better than how it was,” he said.
However, Fayose, in a series of tweets, blasted the Minister for his dishonest statement.
As Minister of Information, Lai Mohammed has lost his moral obligation to Nigeria and its people. He is no doubt a Minister of Misinformation.
He is not only a Lying Mohammed, he is Evil Mohammed.

“At 69 years, it is a shame that he vomits evil words through his septic-tank-like-mouth,” the former Governor wrote.
In other tweets, Fayose said:
”As Minister of Information, Lai Mohammed has lost his moral obligation to Nigeria and its people. He is no doubt a Minister of Misinformation. He is not only a Lying Mohammed, he is Evil Mohammed.
“It is a shame that he carries evil in his brain and can open his mouth to defend insecurity in the country, comparing the situation now with what was obtainable in 2015
“Nigerians are not interested in comparing what happened before 2015 with what is happening now. Rather, they are interested in a secured country where they can carry out their daily activities without fear of being killed or kidnapped.
“Unfortunately, this present APC govt has failed to secure Nigerians, with Aso Rock Villa fast becoming the only secured place in the country.”
