Lai Moh, Nabena Clash Over Calls For Cancellation of APC Registration Exercise
The Deputy National Publicity Secretary of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Yekini Nabena, has condemned calls by the Minister of information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, for the cancellation of the party’s ongoing membership registration and revalidation exercise of the in Kwara State.
In a terse response, Yekini advised Mohammed to henceforth stop working at cross-purpose with party stakeholders in the state.
While responding to remarks of the Minister accusing the APC Deputy National Scribe as an imposter, Nabena described the Minister as a total failure in President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration.
He added that “Mohammed and his gang are calling for the cancellation of the registration exercise for their selfish interest as details of their evil plans to destroy the APC by the likes of the minister has been exposed and the party leadership is fully aware.”
Nebena further explained that “at the right time, Lai Mohammed and his gang will be exposed and Nigerians will then know the real impostor.”
Recently both men had been locked in a bitter rivalry after Lai Mohammed berated Nabena for advising him “to work with his Kwara state governor and allow peace to reign in the ongoing nationwide membership registration and revalidation exercise of the party.”
Nabena accused the information and culture minister of struggling to keep up with reality having been left behind in the scheme of things in the party.
The APC Deputy National Publicity Secretary further added that “he (Mohammed) can no longer catch up with time unless he works with his Governor AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq of Kwara state.”
On allegations of imposition levelled against him by Mohammed, Nabena said Lai Mohammed does not understand that “NEC can’t commit suicide and give birth to Caretaker Committee because it is the highest body of the party. Even the President, the Governors, Senate President and the Speaker are all members of the NEC. So, if NEC commits suicide that shows there is no more party.”
In continuation of the exchanges, Nabena states “Lai Mohammed and his fifth columnists are the biggest problems of this administration. As the Minister of Information and Culture that suppose to explain the policies and programmes, including remarkable achievements of this administration to Nigerians, Lai Muhammed has failed woefully. Whatever he says is considered as a lie. If not, Lai should tell Nigerians what has been his contributions in the last five years.”
