Alhaji Lai Mohammed has earned himself a name in political circles as an arfent supporter of his party.
However, Nigerians see him differently. Lai has been severally labeled a liar by common Nigerians.
Reacting to the obvious economic downturn, which the CBN accepts, Lai stated this : “Those who think we do not have an economic plan have not taken the pains to check out our plan.
“We are working to reflate the economy and provide more jobs.
“We will also invest in infrastructure, power, railways and roads and by so doing create the enabling environment for industries to thrive,” Lai stated.
Of his serial untruths, one of Lai’s lies was his defense of Aisha Buhari’ mad dog tweet against Governor of Ekiti State.
According to Lai, PDP hacked Aisha’s account, posted the tweet and sneaked out.

PDP retracted some of the tweets it made. One of them reads: “Governor Fayose may have to take extra security measures to prevent Aisha Buhari or the 1st family from assassinating him.”
And again, “First Lady Aisha Buhari got $22m forex from CBN on the instructions of Emefiele and the company sold at N362 same day. #CorruptionAndBuhari.”
According to PPD’s acting chairman, “We have noticed, with a growing sense of dismay, the level of toxicity that pervades the political space with respect to discussions on national issues.
“We accept responsibility and apologise for whatever role we have played in reaching this level of toxicity.
“Henceforth, we commit to focusing only on the issues and proffering cogent & competent solutions to the issues facing the nation.”
It is not clear whether the toxic actions refers to the tweet on Aisha Buhari’s wall which Mohammed claimed PDP posted.
If it is, then Mohammed has spoken his probable ‘first truth’.
