The Minister of Information and Culture talks to The Africa Report about the forthcoming presidential election, the performance of the current administration, his push for more social media regulation and his controversial crusade against fake news and hate speech. 

At 71, Lai Mohammed is no stranger to Nigerian politics. He started out as Chief of Staff to then Lagos State Governor, Bola Tinubu, in 1999.
