He told Legit.ng:

“For the prospective minister of communication, that should be Dele Alake. Why? He was Tinubu’s commissioner for information when he was governor of Lagos state. He is a veteran journalist who will be the armour-bearer of the presidency. Remember, he was the SA on Media and Special Duties before he was nominated as a minister. So, Dele Alake wins it for me.

“And lastly, Tinubu knows how powerful media narrative is and for this reason, he will unleash Dele Alake on Nigerians. The word is ‘unleash’. Lai Mohammed will be child’s play.”
