Alhaji Lai Mohammed, the minister of information and culture says his view on a radio station in Abuja about President Muhammadu Buhari’s handling of the Nigerian economy has been twisted and distorted.
He is at a loss as to why his views were distorted and the motive of the twisters, according to a rebuttal issued today by his special adviser, Segun Adeyemi.
“On Saturday morning, I appeared on a Radio show here in Abuja at which I spoke extensively on the issues affecting our country, especially the economy
“To my surprise, my views were twisted and I was reported to have said that the economy of our country is beyond the control of the President.
“This is a gross misrepresentation of what I said. I could not have said our economy is out of the control of our President or the administration he heads. As a matter of fact, this Administration has decided to turn the economic disaster that we inherited to a blessing by diversifying our economy.
“I don’t know the reason behind the gross distortion of my comments on the radio today, but whatever the motive is, Nigerians should disregard such distortion and continue to support our President and his Administration to take our country out of the woods”.
