A group, Arewa Youth Frontiers for Good Governance (AYFGG), has attacked Lai Mohammed, Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, for describing Kwara State governor, Abdulrahman AbdulRazaq, as “one chance governor.”
Mohammed, during the unveiling of a factional All Progressives Congress (APC) secretariat in Ilorin recently, said he regretted supporting AbdulRazaq.
“It was immediately after the governor emerged as the party’s candidate for the election that it dawned on us that we had entered ‘one chance,” the minister had said.
However, speaking at a press briefing in Abuja on Sunday, Mohammed Hussaini, National Coordinator of AYFGG, said the minister is provoked by the governor’s refusal to regard him as “kingmaker” in the state.
Hussaini urged Mohammed to focus on the national assignment given to him, instead of seeking relevance in Kwara politics.
He said AbdulRazak deserves support in his effort to transforms the state.
“We are not surprised at the vituperation of Lai Mohammed because we knew that since the coming of the Abdulrahman’s government in Kwara State, the kingmaker role he expected to regale in did not come simply because Governor Abdulrahman has refused to dance to his tune or regard him as a kingmaker,” he said.
