INTERVIEW: I don’t think Obasanjo believes he’s being investigated by Buhari, says Lai Mohammed

Lai Mohammed, minister of information and culture, says he does not think former President Olusegun Obasanjo believes that he is being investigated by President Muhammadu Buhari.
In an exclusive interview with TheCable at Cambridge University, UK, the minister said the former president was just crying foul to distract Nigerians from “the ground-breaking June 12 declaration” by President Buhari.
Lai, who delivered the keynote address at the 2018 “Africa Together Conference” hosted by the African Society of Cambridge University (ASCU), also told TheCable that President Muhammadu Buhari could consider a national award for Stella Adadevoh, the brave doctor who sacrificed her life to halt the spread of Ebola in Nigeria.
He added that there are criteria for national honours, and once a person is brought to the president, those criteria will be considered and if the person is deserving, such a person will get it.
The minister, who also spoke on the anti-corruption war being led by the Muhammadu Buhari administration, said the conviction of Joshua Dariye, former governor of Plateau state and a member of the president’s party, has put a lie to notions that APC members were immune.
Speaking of what has been regarded as emergency actions by the president, Lai Mohammed said anyone who has been following the administration will know that the government has been focused on developing Nigeria.
He took a swipe at the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) for underrating the Buhari-led government, adding that the APC will continue to surprise the opposition.
