Former minister of education, Oby Ezekwesili, has slammed the Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, following his allegation of treason levelled against the Labour Party (LP) presidential candidate, Peter Obi.
Naija News reported that the Federal Government warned Peter Obi against inciting Nigerians to violence over the outcome of the presidential election.
According to Mohammed, it is wrong for Obi to seek redress in court over the outcome of the presidential election and on the other hand incite people to violence.
Responding to Mohammed in a series of tweets on Tuesday, Oby Ezekwesili described the minister’s treason allegation as nonsense and thoughtless talk.
According to her, a reasonable person will not waste their time worrying about people like Lia Mohammed who she described as a peddler of false accusations.
She wrote: “Nonsense. No reasonable persons in the world ever waste their time worrying about peddlers of false accusations. I think Minister Lai Mohammed of the Federal Ministry of Information and Culture @FMICNigeria is trying to outdo his APC colleagues in thoughtless talks.
“It is the height of sophistry, thoughtless talk and abuse of power for the Minister of Information and Culture @FMICNigeria to throw accusations of Treason on Political Opponents who have taken the right Judicial Processes in contesting the result of an election. Stop it!
“Your @NigeriaGov @MBuhari conducted a fatally flawed election and instead of circumspection, you want to cower the citizens and your opponents who are aggrieved? What happened to Wisdom in knowing that this is the wrong moment to abuse your power of incumbency? Get wisdom now.”
