Lai Mohammed Lied About Funding 2019 Election In Kwara State – Secretary

It has been reported that the APC Kwara state secretary, Alhaji Mustapha Ishowo, had disclosed that the Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, lied about funding the 2019 general election in the state.

 He reportedly disclosed this at a news conference in Ilorin, on Thursday, while condemning what he called the minister’s dictatorial and divisive tendencies.

Ishowo stated that, “The then governorship candidate ran and led his own campaign across the state, day and night. This was heavily bankrolled by the candidate himself. He also donated hugely to the campaigns of other candidates, even when he had his own election to run. This is the fact, and any claim to the contrary by Alhaji Lai and his followers is synonymous with his widely acclaimed epithet: lies.”

He added that, “Alhaji Lai Mohammed’s claim that he funded the APC election campaign in 2019 is a fallacy. Anyone who knows Alhaji Lai Mohammed knows he cannot part with his kobo.”

He disclosed that, “The claim that he bankrolled the governor’s campaign is an empty boast that every serious party member and elder knew to be false. If anything, he was simply cornering party funds for personal promotion and use.”

He made it known that, “The motorcycles he was talking about were donations to the party which he was forced to share after a tug of war and subtle threats of reporting him to the party’s national secretariat and the donors.”

He said that, “Indeed, rather than warehouse such donated items at the party secretariat, they were kept at his LAMCO office. This shows his nature as a sectional and maximum ruler.”
