Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Muhammad has said that there is something wrong with some politicians in the country.
He said this in reaction to different reaction that greeted the rescue of the schoolboys kidnapped in Kankara by their abductors.
While some alleged that it was staged, others immediately politicised the kidnap with #BringBackOurBoys banners already printed. Uche Secondus, National Chairman of the opposition People’s Democratic Party (PDP) led a protest on Saturday.
Speaking on NTA’s Good Morning Nigeria Show on Saturday, said politicians, irrespective of their differences ought to come together to find solutions for the county’s problem.
He explained that he is not proud to be in the same class with them.
“In my press conference yesterday, I said in a time of crisis or tragedy, people normally come together to address that issue. It is not a time to politicise, trade or commercialise the misery or tragedy of a whole nation,” Mohammed said.
“And I am not proud to be lumped together in the same class as those who claim to be politicians because those are not real politicians. Yes, we can have our differences but when it comes to issues like Kankara, we should come together and resolve it. Some political parties actually came to Abuja and you know, they had already made vests, banners, parading the streets.
“So honestly, there is something not quite right with some of our politicians
