My convoy has 5 and not 6 cars – Lai Mohammed

Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Yisa Lai Muhammed has reacted to the news of his alleged large number of vehicles in his convoy saying that there are five vehicles in his convoy, not six as reported by a daily newspaper on Monday.
A statement by his press secretary, Joseph Mutah, said the minister moves around in a convoy of five vehicles if moving with his aides and four without his aides.
He said though the report highlighted the cut in the cost of governance under Buhari administration, but there a misrepresentation of fact on his motorcade.
Daily Trust reported that it saw the minister using six vehicles, four of which were Toyota Land cruiser SUVs and two Hilux vans in his convoy.
But the statement said “the fact is that if the minister moves with his aides, who occupy one vehicle, he has a three-vehicle convoy plus two pilot vehicles. If he is without his aides, he has a two-vehicle convoy plus the two pilot vehicles. The minister’s back-up vehicle is also used by the security details.”
