Minister for Information, Lai Mohammed, has come under fire for saying Nigeria was a Pariah state under former president, Goodluck Jonathan while he was explaining to newsmen why President Buhari is always travelling out of the country.
Nigerians on Twitter got online to express their anger over the minister’s statement:
Lai Mohammed calling Nigeria a 'pariah State' under Jonathan was barefaced falsehood. Nigeria was not a pariah state under Jonathan.

#AdForumCo Lai Mohammed says Nigeria was a pariah state under GEJ. Yet it was the number 1 destination for foreign investments in Africa

Those who says that the devil is a liar have probably never heard Lai Mohammed speak

Lai Mohammed cannot differentiate his role as a Nigerian Minister of Information and an APC Propaganda Publicity Secretary & its very sad

Thank you so much"@debsextra: Lai Mohammed shouldn't forget that the people that lived under the GEJ administration are still here."

Lai Mohammed is like those players that find it difficult to cope in the EPL after helping their club gain promotion, Lai Mohammed is (1/2)
