The Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, has said that he will present to the public what he termed available evidence of how Senate President Bukola Saraki “lied” that he donated ten million naira to victims of Offa banks robberies when he did not.
In a statement issued in Abuja today, the minister said he will present both the unedited version of a live radio interview as well as the allegedly doctored, re-broadcast version about the donated fund to show “Saraki’s disdain for truth.”
Specifically, the minister said that in the live radio interview on Christmas Day, Saraki said he donated the ten million naira to the robbery victims in Offa. However, Mohammed said, it was doctored before it was re-broadcast to remove any reference to the claimed donation of ten million naira to victims of the armed robbery.
Mohammed said he was releasing the evidence “for Nigerians to see the extent to which some leaders can go to deceive the people and peddle lies just to shore up their dwindling fortunes.”
said while he didn’t intend to exchange words with Saraki on who is truly a grassroots politician in Kwara State, it was important to let him know that six weeks from now, the people of Kwara will answer that question.
