The Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, has said that the video of him begging Nigerians to forgive President Buhari over his WAEC results was “doctored”.

Nigerians attacked Mohammed on Friday, after a video where he was pleading with Nigerians to forgive the President over his controversial documents, surfaced online.

“Nigerians should please, pardon President Buhari over his (WAEC) certificate, he doesn’t know where he kept it, it’s been over 53 years now since he finished secondary education”, Minister Lai said in the video sighted.

But reacting to the trends in a statement obtained by Igbere TV on Saturday, the minister said “the video was doctored making it look like” he was “begging Nigerians to forgive the president.”
