The Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, has said that the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, is desperate.

Mr Mohammed made this known during   a media briefing on Thursday in Abuja. He said Atiku’s desperation is “due to his floundering campaign’’. This was in reaction to a statement credited to the former vice President, in which he said that killings in the country, won’t cease unless Buhari is voted out.

“It is clear to all Nigerians that the electioneering campaign of the PDP presidential candidate has failed to gain traction.

“From Sokoto to Ilorin to Ibadan to Gombe, it has been a disastrous outing for the campaign.

“ With that magnitude of failure, anyone can say anything to stay afloat.’’

Speaking on allegation of clampdown on civil society following the re-arrest and detention of Deji Adeyanju, Lai Mohammed said there’s no such thing.

“There is no clampdown on any civil society, except in the wild
imagination of naysayers.

“As I have said, being in opposition is no licence to break the law and then hope to escape justice.

“If the police have re-arrested Adeyanju, they must have a compelling reason
to do so. Anyone who breaks the law must face justice’’.
