Buhari Not In US – Lai Mohammed


Nigeria’s Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, on Sunday pleaded with Nigerians not to believe the fake news being circulated via a parody Twitter account that President Muhammadu Buhari is about to travel United States.
The information minister disclosed that one of the numerous parody Twitter accounts in his name, @MohammedLai, was used to disseminate the fake and ludicrous news which claims that the president was slated to leave Nigeria for the USA on Monday in order “to condole with President Trump over the floods in Houston”.
On the old NTA news video being circulated on social media, the statement added, “This is a 2015 NTA News video that was repackaged to look current, and to give the impression that the President left Daura, where he is celebrating Eid-el-Kabir, directly for New York.”

Calling on Nigerians to disregard any news credited to any account in his name, either on Twitter or Facebook, the minister further revealed, “Numerous parody accounts have been opened in my name on the two platforms, when indeed I have no Twitter or Facebook accounts.”
