I will respond to you at appropriate time, Lai Mohammed tells AbdulRazaq

Information and Culture Minister Lai Mohammed said that at the appropriate time and forum, he would respond to false allegations made against him by Governor AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq of Kwara State.

The minister said so on Tuesday when he appeared on a Continental TV telephone show, “This Morning”, monitored by the Nigeria News Agency.

NAN reports that, in an exclusive interview with a national newspaper, published on Monday, the governor alleged that the minister dehumanized him during the campaign and other preparations for the 2019 governorship and other elections in the state. .

Mr. AbdulRazaq also alleged that the minister did not hand over about 100 million naira raised for the election campaign.

Responding to a question from the program’s anchor on the allegations and the crisis of the All Progressive Congress in the state, the minister said “as soon as possible” that he would give his answer.

“I read the article and also read the response from some people.

“I believe that the issues of national importance that I have come here to discuss are more important than the personal disagreement between me and the governor.

“At the appropriate time and forum, I will respond to false allegations,” he said.

The minister also declined to answer questions about parallel congresses organized by the APC in some states.

According to him, party officials appointed or elected as spokespersons and other leaders are better placed to answer such questions.

“As a federal minister, I am not supposed to be partisan in the performance of my duties, whether on intra-party or inter-party issues,” he said.

NAN reports that the minister was on the agenda specifically to discuss national security and other related issues.
