Buhari fired at his Minister of information Lia Muhammad says he told him not to reply Obasanjo’s letter but he disobeyed him, and act against his will. The information boss who also recently replied Obasanjo’s alarm and a threat to his life on Friday replied OBJ that it is only the guilty ones that are afraid to the extend of raising an alarm. Though according to President Buhari he did a good job because after the reply a number of people rang him.
“We were constrained to explain our position when the former Head of State wrote a letter; Adesina was agitated and wanted to immediately reply but I didn’t allow him,” he said.
“When Lai Mohammed came, I said he shouldn’t and he insisted. He disobeyed me. He said I must allow him to talk; then, of course, being a professional information person, I listened to him and asked him, ‘what are we going to say?’
“He said he was going to remind Nigerians where we found ourselves when we came in as a government, where we are now, what we have done in between with the resources available to us… he did a good job because a number of people rang me and said Lai Mohammed has done a good job…”
“I said it is on record and I challenge anybody to check from Europe, United States, and Asia that between 1999 and 2014, the 16 years of previous administration there was an average of 2.1 million per day of crude oil at the average cost of $100 per barrel,” he said.
