Opinion: Re: Nigeria is one of the Safest Place to Live in’, Another Lie-spell According to Saint Lai Mo

By Peter Egbuchua Where outright falsehood, misinformation and disinformation are at the core of State propaganda, where the instrumentality of State defense devolves on lies and chicanery, where mendacity and perfidy constitute the crucible of State information policy, and when the Minister of Information is the chief purveyor of deceit and lies, the ethical, intellectual, moral and spiritual fabric of the nation is threatened.
