The minister said it was a disgusting distraction orchestrated by those seeking to undermine the massive on-going attack on terrorism and banditry.
The Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, responded to a non-profit organization based in the United States on allegations of sponsorship of the terrorism that is currently ravaging the country.
According to the minister, “the so-called Global Advocates for Terrorism Eradication are a nuisance irritant that should be ignored, especially since it is as confusing as it is irresponsible.”
Lai also said it was “a disgusting distraction orchestrated by those seeking to undermine the ongoing massive attack on terrorism and banditry.”
He added that GATE’s reliance on “the words of a thoroughly discredited former Nigerian naval intelligence officer and fake news dealer” showed the emptiness of his accusation.
The declaration read;
“This organization called GATE is not even worth the ink its name is written in. How can a serious organization accuse a government that is facing the double evil of terrorism and banditry with the uncommon determination to sponsor terrorism? “It is not curious that this organization has chosen this particular moment, when terrorists surrender in droves or run away in bulk. skelter, following a renewed offensive against them by the military, to orchestrate a distraction? What could be the motive of GATE if not to weaken the fight against terror and banditry? “GATE and its sponsors should be completely ashamed of themselves and should stop trying to distract our valiant troops who are doing everything they can, including the supreme sacrifice, to keep our country safe. “In the fight against terrorism, Nigeria has gained a meritorious advantage by confronting local terrorists with links to global terrorist organizations. We would like to say that no administration in Nigeria has taken up the challenge of terrorism as the Buhari administration did: “The acquisition of a myriad of platforms, the boost in morale of our fighting forces and the leadership provided by President Muhammadu Buhari has they are united to put our valiant troops in a good position to face head-on and chase the terrorists to flight. Fittingly, Nigeria’s efforts to tackle terrorism have been globally acclaimed: “What our valiant men and women need right now is the support, encouragement and prayers of all, not the distracting antics of an incapable and relevance-seeking organization that passes itself off as the eradication of terrorism. lawyer”
