Change Begins With Me Launch: Lai Mohammed Threatens To Sue Newspaper, Two Others

Published

on

The Minister for Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, has threatened to slam the Daily Independent newspaper with a libel suit over a news report that the ‘Change Begins With Me’ concept was stolen by the minister, and that the launch of the campaign gulped N3.4 billion.

The ‘Change Begins With Me’ campaign was formally launched by President Muhammadu Buhari on September 8 in Abuja but the event was immediately dogged by allegations of intellectual impropriety, a claim the minister vehemently denies.

Mr. Mohammed also threatened to sue Akin Fadeyi, a creative artist and former head of communications at Airtel Nigeria, and one Omo Bazuaye for allegedly claiming that he stole the campaign concept from them.

The minister, through his lawyers, Falana & Falana’s Chambers, said his reputation has been badly hurt by these allegations.

The minister, through separate letters, gave the newspaper and the duo of Fadeyi and Bazuaye seven days to retract the “libelous” statements or be prepared to meet him in court.
