The Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, on Monday took a swipe at the main opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) over its ceaseless criticism of the President Muhammadu Buhari adminstration.
Mohammed accused the opposition party of messing up while in government and also doing worse even as leading opposition party.
At a press conference in Lagos, the minister condemned what he called the “constant infantile press releases by the unserious, unimaginative and drab opposition, which misconstrues opposition as constantly shooting down anything the government of the day does or badmouthing whatever Mr President does or says.”
Adding: “There is more to opposition than predictable and bring-it-down-at-all-cost media interventions. They messed up in government, and they are messing up even more in opposition. No lessons learnt either way.”
The Buhari government had in recent times come under serious criticism from the opposition PDP.

The party in its latest intervention condemned the New Year broadcast of Buhari, describing it as “empty and directionless.”
Responding to Lai Mohammed’s statement yesterday, the PDP National Publicity Secretary, Mr Kola Ologbondiyan, said the minister was not conversant with the reality of the day, saying that was why he was criticizing the PDP.
He said the minister failed to understand that Nigerians were fed up with the Buhari administration and the ruling APC.
“The worry of every Nigerian today is how to survive the next two years and five months of Buhari,” Ologbondiyan said, adding that the minister is still in the pre-2015 era.
“The APC and the Buhari’s administration would always live a life of lies and nothing can stop them from doing that until they are voted out in 2023 election,” he said.
