According to the information shared by human rights activist and lawyer Inibehe Effiong,Lai Mohammed yesterday flew to Delta state in a private jet despite President Buhari banning his Ministers from flying a business class.Below is what he wrote and see how Nigerians reacted above….
‘I understand the Minister of Information, Aljahi Lai Mohammed travelled in a private aircraft to Asaba, Delta State yesterday. President Buhari is said to have banned his Ministers from flying in a Business Class.
If government appointees are banned from using Business Class, why should a Minister be using a private jet? Who paid for it?
The President should query Mr. Mohammed. If it is discovered that public funds was used to for this extravagance, sanctions should follow starting from a refund of the amount spent.
However, let me say this clearly:
The above statement is not intended to pacify those who are aggrieved by my earlier post about the Governor of Akwa Ibom State. It is utter nonsense for anyone to insinuate that I deliberately closed my eyes to Lai Mohammed’s profligacy while deprecating Mr. Udom Emmanuel’s ostentatious lifestyle because of partisanship. That is false and highly nonsensical.
This photo of Lai Mohammed was only brought to my attention after I posted that of the governor of Akwa Ibom State. I could not have ignored what I never knew about. I challenge anyone to prove that I had notice of it prior to my critical post on Udom Emmanuel.
The tendency by some people to always cite a wrong in their attempt to justify or excuse another wrong is not only fallacious but duplicitous. The wrongful action of Alhaji Lai Mohammed is neither a justification nor a defence to the wrongful action of Udom Emmanuel’
