The Minister said there was nothing of such while addressing reporters on Sunday in Ilorin, the Kwara State capital.
“It’s absolutely fake news. There is nothing like that,” he was quoted as saying in a statement by his media aide, Segun Adeyemi.
Mr Mohammed queried why such a report would emerge at a time when the nation and its people were preparing for the presidential election.
“I think it’s part of the opposition’s strategies to throw everything at the administration and at the President. I think every day, they are realising the hopelessness of their position,” the minister claimed.
“Everyday they are amazed by the support Mr President is receiving from every part of the country and they have decided that they are going to spread falsehood, … but people are not listening to them.” He added.
