Oshiomole Tackles Lai Muhammed Over Godfather Issue
The Minister for Information and Culture , Alhaji Lai Muhammed may be in cold war with the APC National Chairman, Comrade Adams Oshiomole unless the two party giants find a common front.
Global Excellence gathered that the minister who has enjoyed the privilege of having exclusive decision on who picks the governorship ticket of the defunct parties of the progressives, ACN, AD and now APC, may not find it as the 2019 general draw near.
The minister, it was gathered, has hidden interest in having the Chairman, National Broadcasting Commission, Mallam Ishaq Moddibo emerged as automatic candidate but insider sources said that there have been pressures on Oshiomole to frustrate such attempt.
In another development, it was learnt that the youth faction of the APC is rooting for Muhammed, the son of the late Justice Mustapha Akanbi as the next governor. This, sources said, was meant to be a direct response to the Kwara PDP now led by the senate president, Bukola Saraki’s alleged move to install the erstwhile spokesman of the APC, Bolaji Abdullahi, as the incumbent Governor Fatai Ahmed’s successor.
Meanwhile, Global Excellence learned that a Lai Muhammed’s fellow minister, Mr Raji Fashola, is backing his longtime friend, Mohammed Belgore who is no longer in talking terms with Lai.
It doesn’t end there, sources said, as the list of aspirants on the platform of the APC keep increasing on regular basis.
