‘Learn to talk like a Minister’ -Mimiko tells Lai Mohammed

Ondo state governor, Olusegun Mimiko, has enjoined the Minister of Information, Alhaji Lai Mohammed to speak with decorum, when addressing national issues.
Mimiko’s comments was in reaction to Mohammed’s crticisim of Ekiti state governor, Ayo Fayose, who described President Buhari’s Treasury Signel Account policy, as a fraud.
Speaking on Tuesday in Akure, the governor said Lai Mohammed shouldn’t expect ‘praises’ from the opposition party, stressing that the Peoples Democratic Party was at liberty to criticise the present administration.
“As a former Minister of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, I want to believe there is an urgent need for me to assist in reorientation and exercise of Presidential familiarization for our Minister of Information, Alhaji Lai Mohammed to know that he now works with the Presidency and should adapt to presidential breeze and ethics and learn how to address issues of public interest without unleashing terror and verbal war on personalities in oppositions like when he does as the Spokesperson to the All Progressive Congress, APC.”
“As the Lord will have it, PDP is today the strongest opposition party in the country. We are playing the role as expected of any doggedly focused and serious opposition. Lai Mohammed shouldn’t be expecting praises and worship songs from us because we are not brain-washable”.
“Therefore, it was erroneous and insulting for the Minister of Information to be attacking our people who criticised the formulated TSA policy by the presidency. It is absolutely unacceptable by me as person and PDP as a party.
“Nigeria belongs to everybody and it does to nobody; no single person or party owns our common wealth. No one!”
