APC Deputy National Publicity Secretary Yekini Nabena has described the Minister of Information Lai Mohammed as a nobody in Kwara State politics
“If being the Deputy National Publicity Secretary of the APC is his problem, then I will respond to him as Yekini Nabena. Let him respond to the questions I raised first before delving into the issue of impostor or not.
“When Bukola Saraki was in Kwara, can he [Lai Mohammed] talk? But now, he wants to turn a sitting governor into his PA. A man that sits in Abuja without a structure in Kwara thinks he can be pushing the governor about.
“He is talking about the cancellation of the membership registration exercise. Even his master (Asiwaju) Tinubu has done his registration. So, on what basis is he asking the party to cancel the exercise?
“The same man labeling a party executive an impostor, what has he achieved since his appointment as Minister more than five years ago? Nothing! He should bring out his achievements first and let us see.”
Nabena was responding to a statement credited to Lai Mohammed calling him an impostor.
“My attention has been drawn to the statement credited to one Yekini Nabena, who was described as the deputy national publicity secretary of the All Progressives Congress (APC), on the ongoing APC Membership Registration in Kwara state.
“The said Nabena must have been speaking for himself, as the APC National Caretaker Committee, as presently constituted, has no position like that of deputy national publicity secretary.“
“As part of the resolutions from its last meeting in Abuja on Dec. 8th 2020, the APC NEC approved the immediate dissolution of the party organs at the polling units, wards, local government, states and zonal levels as well as the non-national working committee component of the NEC, and the immediate reconstitution and composition of the dissolved EXCOs to serve in their respective offices in a caretaker committee capacity, but excluding the non-NWC members of NEC.“
“As things stand, therefore, anyone claiming to be the deputy national publicity secretary of the APC is an impostor, hence I will not dignify such a pretender with a response.”
