‘I Use a Convoy of Just 5, Not 6 Cars’, Lai Mohammed Reacts to Media Criticism

Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Muhammed yesterday said there are five vehicles in his convoy, not six as reported by Daily Trust  on Monday.

A statement by his press secretary, Joseph Mutah, said the minister he moves around in a convoy of five vehicles if moving with his aides and  four  without his aides.

He said though the report highlighted the cut in the cost of governance under Buhari administration, but there a misrepresentation of fact on his motorcade.

Daily Trust reported that it saw the minister using six vehicles, four of which were Toyota Land cruiser SUVs and two Hilux vans in his convoy.

But the statement said “the fact is that if the minister moves with his aides, who occupy one vehicle, he has a three-vehicle convoy plus two pilot vehicles. If he is without his aides, he has a two-vehicle convoy plus the two pilot  vehicles. The minister’s back-up vehicle is also used by the security details.”
