Information Minister Lai Mohammed Threatens To Expose Senate President Saraki

The Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, says the claim by the Senate President, Dr Bukola Saraki, that he donated N10 million to victims of the April 5 robbery in Offa “is patently false’’.

Mohammed also declared that he had details of what actually transpired.

In a statement issued on Monday in Lagos, the minister admonished the Senate President “to stop dancing on the graves of the innocent souls” who died in the bloody robbery attack in Offa.

The statement signed by Mr Segun Adeyemi, the Special Adviser to the Minister, said: “He did not! The N10 million he referred to was donated when the Offa market got burnt and it was made in Ilorin, not Offa.
When Dr Saraki visited Offa to commiserate with the community in the aftermath of the robbery, he did not donate a dime! I challenge him to prove me wrong.”

The minister reiterated his earlier warning against playing politics with the unfortunate incident.

He alleged that Saraki had said in a radio interview that he donated the N10 million when he visited Offa to commiserate with the people in the aftermath of the robbery.

Mohammed added that the senate president in the interview also said that the N10 million he donated was more than the N7 million that was stolen from the robbed banks’ vaults.

“The overly aggressive and crude response by Dr Saraki to that warning has shown that he is not ready to heed the admonition, hence the need to re-state it, and to condemn any attempt to denominate human lives in Naira and Kobo,” he said.

The minister said that in the wake of his warning, the apparently embarrassing radio interview was hurriedly edited to remove all references to the Offa robbery and then re-aired across Kwara state.

He further said: “Instead of stopping at that, which in itself constitutes an acceptance of wrong-doing, Dr Saraki went ahead to hurl insults at me even when I have been largely restrained in issuing my earlier warning.

“Had I not been restrained, I would have gone ahead to divulge what actually transpired. But with politics in the air, the truth becomes the first casualty.

“Realising that he goofed, Dr Saraki apparently caused the radio interview in question to be edited to remove the donation reference, and then re-aired.

“Is it not an irony that the people who engaged in this egregious act of dishonesty are the same ones calling others names?”

Mohammad said he would continue to steer the debate on the political developments in Kwara to issues rather than an exchange of personal insults which he had always been averse to.

“The people of Kwara, who are bone-tired of the long years of ‘bolekaja’ governance in the state, are all saying in one voice, ‘O to ge’ (enough is enough).

“They will soon have the opportunity to express their frustration with their votes,” the minister said.

  1. If you have any evidence against him then bring it up. Why the delay? I hate when people only talk and do threat but show no actions. Mohammed, you have always being a controversial person that I hardly take your words serious. Today you say a thing and the next day you come up to refute it. At the very end you all will be fine.

    1. Teejay..Lai can lie i agree.But they dont even want to hear Saraki's name in Offa oo.Let me stop here.

  2. Who will believe lienus Mohammed kwanu? A man that lies for a living. Happy new year all
