Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, has said that the victory of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the presidential election of 2015 represented the exit of Nigeria from hell.
He said that no Nigerian would therefore pray for the return to power of the former ruling party, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), even as he made it clear that the APC is not worried about PDP campaign to regain power in the next general elections.
Lai Mohammed, who spoke to news men in Abuja, the nation’s Federal Capital Territory (FCT) today, Thursday, said: ‘now, as to whether we are afraid that the PDP would win, I can tell you absolutely, we couldn’t even contemplate it because it would be a tragedy for Nigeria to fall back into the hands of PDP.
“Look, we have very painstakingly taken this country through hell, I mean, they dropped us in hell, and we are taking the people out of hell. We can’t come back to Egypt. No, I am serious, it is not about APC, it is about President Muhammadu Buhari. It is like the kind of revelations that are coming out, the kind of rot, you want those people to come back and preside over the affairs of Nigeria again.
“Now, let me ask you for instance what would happen to the investigations that have been held if the PDP should win in 2019? They would be swept under the carpet.” [myad]
