The Local Government Chairmen of the All Progressives Congress in Kwara South Senatorial District of Kwara State have expressed support for the reappointment of the Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, into the cabinet of President Muhammadu Buhari in his second term.
The party chairmen urged members of the public to dismiss the press statement by the party’s Elders’ Forum in the senatorial district which claimed that the minister didn’t deserve reappointment.

The APC leaders said the Elders’ Forum was not in existence, submitting that their claims against the minister, who is from Oro in the Ifelodun Local Government Area, should be ignored.
The APC LG chairmen, in a statement jointly signed by Mohammed Shilo Awobimpe, Chairman, Ifelodun LG; Aransiola Oyeyemi Samson, Chairman, Irepodun LG; Bamidele Ogunbayo, Chairman, Isin LG; Muhideen Shittu, Chairman, Oke Ero LG; Olawale Awelewa, Chairman, Ekiti LG; Taiye Olaniyi, Chairman, Oyun LG; and Yusuf Kehinde, Chairman, Offa LGA, urged Buhari to reappoint Mohammed.
The statement read in part, “Our attention had been drawn to a press release issued on May 22, 2019 by some elders claiming to be speaking for Kwara South APC elders. This should be disregarded in its entirety and whatever it stands for.
“We wish to state unequivocally that Alhaji Lai Mohammed, as minister, provided all the necessary apparatus required of a leader in making the APC to record a resounding victory in the last general elections.
“We know the antecedent of all individuals involved in this act as this is the only way they know in getting patronage, especially during the period of appointments.”
