Alhaji Lai Mohammed, the Minister of Information and Culture has disclosed that President Muhammadu Buhari does not interfere with elections.

This is coming after the controversies that surrounded the just-concluded gubernatorial polls in Adamawa state.

Speaking during a heated exchange with State House Correspondents after this week’s Federal Executive Council meeting presided over by Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, Lai Mohammed averred that it is the prerogative of the Independent National Electoral Commission to deal with the infraction by the suspended Adamawa State Resident Electoral Commissioner, Hudu Ari.

He also said that he has not received any petition written to Buhari to sanction the erring REC, whom he simply described as an INEC employee.

Lai Mohammed said;

“The President does not micromanage any institution. I don’t think that this government has ever intervened in the way the Independent National Electoral Commission conducts its elections.”
