Lai Mohammed makes shocking revelation about politicians

The Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, has said many politicians in Nigeria own several houses and billions of Naira.

Lai Mohammed said this on Tuesday, 12th November, 2019 in Abuja at a book presentation in honour of Chief Bisi Akande, the pioneer National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC).

He said: “What we witnessed today is a celebration of a man of principle, integrity and politician with strict adherence to good governance

“His understanding of good governance is how positively government can impact on the people.

“What we are celebrating today is the contrast to a generally accepted wrong notion that integrity does not pay,” Mohammed told newsmen at the event.

Lai Mohammed added that the essence of being in politics was to render good governance, selfless service to the populace and not about fat bank accounts.

“For instance, we were told here today that when the military struck in 1983 and Chief Akande was arrested, they found only about N2000 in his bank account.

“Today, we have many politicians in Nigeria that own so many houses, billions of Naira in their accounts, but they are not being celebrated like this man”, he said.
