- Members of Kwara South Forum have urged President Buhari not re-appoint Lai Mohammed into his cabinet
- The forum said the minister cannot boast of any development in the area since assuming office four years ago
- According to the forum, the call for the president not to re-appoint Mohammed became necessary due to the minister's lack of responsibility to the people
Some of the constituents of Kwara south have kicked against the possible re-appointment of the Lai Mohammed as the minister of information and culture in President Muhammadu Buhari's second tenure.
The youth wing of the Kwara South Forum (KSF) challenged the minister to name his achievement since assuming office in 2015.
The forum in a statement signed by representatives of the six local government councils that made up the Kwara south senatorial district said there is no notable achievement by the minister in the area.
The constituents said the call for the president not to re-appoint Mohammed became necessary due to the minister's lack of responsibility to the people.
The statement said: “It is on record that all the governorship candidates including His Excellency, Alhaji Abdulrahman AbdulRazaq, Senatorial and House of Representative candidates from Kwara South all consulted the forum for endorsement and support in the last election. That shows the recognition we all have for the forum.
“They should let us unite and promote someone who will care about the welfare, interest and aspiration of Kwarans as a minister and not a greedy, self-centred person who is not interested in the development and progress of our dear state,” the statement said.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng previously reported that Mohammed, is having a hard time maintaining his status as the political leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in his home state of Kwara.
According to a report, the situation is so bad that the minister must be wondering just where the rain of disaffection among party faithful began to beat him. At the current rate, the minister is said to be in danger of totally losing his hold on the state and turning into a ceremonial figurehead with little loyalty.
The report highlighted that the annual Ramadan Lecture organized by the minister in his native Oro, Kwara state was the beginning of the Alhaji Mohammed's declining status as the Kwara APC leader.
