The National Publicity Secretary of the All Progressives Congress and a Ministerial nominee, Alhaji Lai Mohammad was Tuesday cleared by the Senate as he was unanimously told by the Senators to take a bow and go.
Speaking about his actions as spokesperson for the APC he said he “might have ruffled a few feathers in the course of my duties, it wasn’t personal.’
Lai Mohammed however said he believes 4 years will be too short for the PDP to get used to opposition.
“I believe four years is too small to stay in opposition, they might have to stay longer,” he said.
“I have been in opposition for 10 years and thoroughly enjoyed it. But I’m sure it’s better and more comfortable being in government.”
Addressing the PDP, he said the APC:
“Will not be as harsh to you as you were to us when we were in the Opposition.
“My mission/vision if confirm minister is; i’ll be passionate committed & patriotic as I was when I was in government,” he added.
Lai who addressed the senate amid cheer said he will be very comfortable being in government, and as such was willing to serve under President Muhammadu Buhari who deemed it necessary to consider him as a nominee.
Lai’s introductory speech that was intermittently interrupted by the cheering lawmakers was concluded when he said that if confirmed as a Minister, he will be as patriotic, passionate and honest as he was when he was in the opposition.
