Paul Ibe, media consultant for Atiku Abubakar, presidential candidate of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), says Lai Mohammed, Minister of Information, “smokes certified weed”.
Ibe said this while responding to Mohammed’s statement that Atiku should apologize to the Nigerians for distracting the government by appealing to the court’s verdict for a presidential election request.
On Wednesday, the court rejected Atiku and the PDP’s demands against the victory of President Muhammadu Buhari in the last election.
Mohammed had said Atiku had approached the tribunal “with a fraudulently-obtained evidence”.
In Twitter post on Thursday, Ibe questioned the “type of weed” the information minister smokes.
“Lai: Atiku should apologise to Nigerians,” he tweeted.
“Me: For real? What type of weed are you smoking? It can only be #CertifiedWeed.”
Lai: Atiku should apologise to Nigerians.

Mohammed had asked the opposition party to join hands with the government to move the country to the next level.
“Don’t they realise this is a criminal act for which they are liable? Instead of threatening to head to the Supreme Court, driven more by ego than commonsense, they should be sorry for allowing desperation to overwhelm their sense of reasoning. Enough is enough,” he had said.
