Lai Mohammed, minister of information, says the All Progressives Congress (APC), will win the 2019 general election as there is no viable opposition to the party.

The minister said this while fielding questions from reporters in Benin, Edo state on Saturday, where he chaired the wedding of the son of Mariam Abubakar, Edo commissioner for budget and economy planning.

He said the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), that would have provided a “kind of opposition” is in disarray.

He attributed the reason the APC would win the elections to its performance in the last three years.

He also said that the ruling party is not in the least threatened by the noise of the PDP.

“We believe that the people will vote for performance and to that, we are very confident; the government has not stopped working. We will continue to work for Nigerians to see,” NAN quoted him as saying.

“Basically, I don’t see any opposition from the PDP, it is a section of the media that has constituted itself the opposition party.”

The minister said the war against fake news menace must be won.

“We have seen fake news gone under, we have been able to drag it under the table, bring it to the open,” he said.

“We must not forget, however, that fake news is a global phenomenon, it is not peculiar to Nigeria. If not checked it will pitch the people against themselves.

“The Federal Government launched the campaign against fake news because it realised that some very unscrupulous elements have been exploiting the frontline of ethnicity trying to put a wedge against the government and the people.”
