National Publicity Secretary of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, has denied ever saying that President Muhammadu Buhari will release his ministerial list ‘in a few days’ as erroneously reported by a newspaper.
In a statement he released on Thursday, Alhaji Mohammed said: “My attention has been drawn to a report in a section of the media on Thursday quoting me as saying that President Muhammadu Buhari will release his ministerial list ‘in a few days’.
“This is a distortion of what I told journalists on Thursday at Oro, Kwara State, during the 9th Lai Mohammed Ramadan Lecture.
“What I said was that the delay in the release of the ministerial list was caused by the unprecedented transition of power from the ruling party to the opposition and the fact that the handover note was not given to the Transition Committee set up by the incoming government until four days to the presidential inauguration.
“I then thanked Nigerians for their patience and said the President will release the ministerial list ‘soon’.. There is clearly a difference between ‘in a few days’ and ‘soon’.
“Apart from the headline, which has since been corrected by the paper that reported the story, nowhere in the body of the story in question was a direct quote attributed to me as saying the President will release the Ministerial list ‘in a few days.'”
