The Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji LAI MOHAMMED has denied speaking on the return of President MUHAMMADU BUHARI back to the country.
LAI MOHAMMED said in a statement released yesterday said that the reports attributed to him claiming that the President won’t return because of faulty aircraft was false.
The minister in the statement said that he did not speak with anyone on the issue.
Part of the statement said, “Our attention has been drawn to a report quoting the Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji LAI MOHAMMED, as saying the President’s return to Nigeria may be hampered by a faulty aircraft. The minister has not spoken to anyone on the issue of the President’s return, hence this report is another from the stable of the purveyors of fake news and should be disregarded.”
