For the former Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, the name ‘Lie Mohammed’ appears to have come to stay with him as he told the Senate on Tuesday that his seven-year-old grandson asked him for an explanation why he is called ‘liar Mohammed’ on social media.
Mr Mohammed, who is a minister-nominee for a second term, during screening at the Senate, said he didn’t take the name seriously because it is what is used to describe him on social media, stressing that the name on his Curriculum Vitae is his correct name.
“Mr President, there is only one small issue, I want to draw your attention to my name in my CV, it’s about my name as it appears on my CV, it’s my correct name, which is Lai Mohammed.
“Please don’t believe what they say on social media, they call me all sorts of names there. I used to ignore it until one day when my 7-year old grandson called me and said grandpa, tell me the truth, why do they call you Liar Mohammed?
He added that his response to the question was that those behind the name are ‘bad guys’.
Meanwhile, Senator Ibikunle Amosun requested that the minister-nominee takes a bow, owing to his capability to perform after proving himself across the board.
He overwhelming got the HI’s from the floor when senate president, Ahmed Lawan called out those in support of him to take a bow.
