An aspirant in the last governorship election in Kwara State and a chieftain of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), Mallam Saliu Mustapha, has attributed the current challenges facing the nation to what he described as the “desperate lies” of the political class.
Mustapha said this Saturday in Ilorin at the launching of “Twenty-One Political lies in Nigeria”, a book authored by Iyiola Oyedepo, a former commissioner and legislator.

He stressed the immediate need for the political class to ‘de-escalate the situation’ with their words and actions.
“If we are sincere with ourselves as political elite, we will realise that it is an accumulation of the desperate lies of the political class that has brought Nigeria to its present quagmire on security and ethnic agitations.”
The book launch was attended by representatives of the Minister for Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, and other personalities, including the Kwara State governor who joined virtually.
