My Grandson Asked Me Why They Call Me ‘Liar Mohammed’
– Lai Mohammed Tells Senate.
Lai Mohammed, a former Nigerian Minister of Information and Culture, has asked senators to ignore names Nigerians on social media call him.
He made the plea when he appeared before the Senate for screening as a ministerial nominee on Tuesday.
“My name as it appears on my CV is correct — Lai Mohammed.”
“Please, don’t believe what they call me on social media. They call me all sorts of names.
“I used to ignore it until my seven-year-old grandson asked me, ‘Why do they call you Liar Mohammed?’
“I told him, ‘Don’t mind them. They are the bad guys.’”
