Paul Ibe, the media aide to PDP presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, has accused Lai Mohammed of being under the influence of weed.
This was after Lai Mohammed, the minister of information and culture, issued a statement in reaction to the news of the Presidential Election Tribunal striking out Atiku’s petition against President Buhari’s re-election.
Lai Mohammed issued the statement through his aide, Segun Adeyemi.
It reads in part: ”It is intriguing that a party that trumpets the rule of law at every turn will present, in open court, evidence it claimed to have obtained by hacking into a supposed INEC server,” a statement from Segun Adeyemi, media aide to the minister, partly read.
“Don’t they realize this is a criminal act for which they are liable? Instead of threatening to head to the Supreme Court, driven more by ego than commonsense, they should be sorry for allowing desperation to overwhelm their sense of reasoning. Enough is enough,” Mr Adeyemi quoted his principal, who is in Russia, to have said.
Reacting to Lai Mohammed’s statement, Paul Ibe stated that it must have been made under the influence of smoked weed.
“Lai: Atiku should apologise to Nigerians,” Mr Ibe said in a tweet Thursday.
“Me: For real? What type of weed are you smoking? It can only be #CertifiedWeed,” he added.
