It’s absolutely fake news. The purported death of Leah Sharibu. –Alhaji Lai

Is Leah Sharibu still alive? — Yes, Alhaji Lai Mohammed replied as could be deduced from his statement on the purported death of Leah Sharibu.

The Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, has described as absolute fake news of the reported death of abducted Dapchi school girl, Leah Sharibu,

He said the rumour of Miss Sharibu’s death, which surfaced just a few days to the presidential election, is another ploy by the political opposition to tarnish the image of the administration and exploit primordial sentiments ahead of the polls.

According to him,“It’s absolutely fake news. There is nothing like that,” the Minister said at a press briefing in Ilorin, Kwara State, on Sunday.

“I think it’s part of the opposition’s strategies to throw everything at the administration and at the President. I think everyday they are realizing the hopelessness of their position.

“Everyday they are amazed by the support Mr. President is receiving from every part of the country and they have decided that they are going to spread falsehood, inflame passion and make this election a Muslim-Christian affair or North-South affair, but people are not listening to them,” Alhaji Mohammed said.

Speaking on the Monday’s presidential campaign rally in Ilorin, he said the All Progressives Congress (APC) has put everything in place to ensure that the visit of President Buhari is a huge success.

“The party has been meeting in the last couple of days to ensure that the President’s visit is very successful. We have watched the rallies in many parts of the country and we want to assure Mr. President that our rally in terms of numbers, quality of people, entertainment and colour will rank among the best,” the Minister said.

He said the crowd that will come out to receive the President will be organic as the party does not engage in renting crowds.

Alhaji Mohammed appealed to security agencies to create a level playing field for all the contestants in the election to allow the people to freely exercise their franchise, saying those involved in legitimate activities have nothing to fear.

He also described the protest in some circles over the redeployment of Police Commissioners across the country as the handiwork of the opposition, which is working to discredit the police and the Independent National Electoral Commission.
