LAI MUHAMMED SHOULD RESIGN OR BE SACKED BY THE PRESIDENT – HOUSE MINORITY CAUCUS

Minority caucus in the House of Representatives has called for the immediate resignation of the Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, or his sacking by the President.

The caucus made the call as a result of the several statements made by the Minister on the killing of #EndSARS protesters at the Lekki tollgate on October 20th, 2020, where he alleged that the purported massacre of protesters by he Army and Police was a massacre without bodies.

That was before the panel set up by the Lagos State Government submitted its report which indicted the Army and Police and showed that there was actually a massacre of the EndSARS protesters at the Lekki Tollgate.

This stand by the Minority Caucus of the House of Representatives was in a statement issued on Thursday by the Minority Leader of the House, Ndudi Elumelu, titled, ‘Lagos #EndSARS Report: FG Officials Have Questions to Answer – Reps Minority Caucus’.

It reads in part: “The Minority Caucus is, therefore, apprehensive as to what furtive motive must have made the Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, who ought to know the truth, to rush to the media ahead of the judicial panel to insist that there were no killings at Lekki tollgate, even in the face of testimonies of witnesses at the sad event.

“The Minority Caucus, therefore, calls on the APC-led administration to come clean on the killings as well as the furtive moves to cover up the vicious act. Also, giving the findings of the Lagos panel, the Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, is expected to resign immediately or be fired by President Muhammadu Buhari.”
