Lai Mohammed, minister of data, has requested Senate President Bukola Saraki to cease dancing on the graves of victims of the Offa theft incident.
Mohammed mentioned this whereas reacting to a remark credited to Saraki’s aide. The minister had requested Saraki, who mentioned he donated a sum of N10 million to the victims, to not play politics with the incident.
Thereafter, Yusuph Olaniyonu, media aide to the senate, mentioned Mohammed identified to be an “unrestrained and compulsive perjurer” solely commented on the incident to attain low-cost political factors.
However the minster mentioned the declare by the senate president that he donated the sum for the care of the theft victims is fake. “As a substitute of stopping at that, which in itself constitutes an acceptance of wrong-doing, Dr. Saraki went forward to hurl insults at me, even when I’ve been largely restrained in issuing my earlier warning,” Mohammed mentioned.
“Had I not been restrained, I’d have gone forward to expose what truly transpired. For instance, the declare by Dr. Saraki that he donated 10 million Naira to look after the
victims of the Offa theft is patently false.
“He didn’t! The 10 million he referred to was donated when the Offa market bought burnt, and it was made in Ilorin, not Offa. When Dr Saraki visited Offa to commiserate with the group within the aftermath of the theft, he didn’t donate a dime! I problem him to show me incorrect.
“However with politics within the air, the reality turns into the primary casualty. Realising that he goofed, Dr. Bukola apparently induced the radio interview in query to be edited to take away the donation reference, after which re-aired. Is it not
an irony that the individuals who engaged on this egregious act of dishonesty are the identical ones calling others names? “The folks of Kwara, who’re bone-tired of the lengthy years of ‘bolekaja’ governance within the state, are all saying in a single voice, ‘O to ge’ (sufficient is sufficient), and can quickly have
the chance to precise their frustration with their votes.”
In April, not lower than 20 individuals have been killed after armed robbers invaded Offa and raided banks.
