Pres. Muhammadu Buhari.
We expect a leaked letter addressed to President Muhammadu Buhari from the office of the Minister of information Alhaji Lai Mohammed very soon.

Like the Minister of State for Petroleum Ibe Kachikwu and several Ministers including Babatunde Fashola, a source hinted that Alhaji Mohammed has not been able to secure an appointment to see PMB neither has the President acknowledged or reacted to the several memos that Alhaji Mohammed sent to him on wide ranging issues affecting smooth running of the information and culture ministry.

Sources say Alhaji Mohammed has a difficult nut to crack in one of his DG's, the Artistic Director of the National Theatre Tar Ukoh whom another source revealed was appointed without any input from the Minister. Sources say that the National theatre DG has refused to take directives from the Minister insisting that as an appointee of the President just like the Minister, he is only answerable to the President, the Chief of Staff and the Secretary to government who signed his letter of appointment.

The source also said that Tar Ukoh has ignored several directives of the Minister to report to his duty post in Lagos. Staff of the National Theatre say the last time Tar Ukoh showed up was in March "and for 2 days". They alleged that since then he has been running the theatre on phone "from Jos". To be sure, this reporter visited the national theatre consistently all through august and September and even up-till this morning and the staff have no news about his whereabout. Staff of the Abuja office said he was last seen at the 'Abuja liaison office in July'. Calls to the mobile number sourced from his staff have remained on "call divert".

The national theatre is currently in a mess as there has been no power supply to the building since July.  The once vibrant cultural edifice looks deserted. Only a few staff were seen under the almond tree by the main entrance expressing their displeasure over the decision of President Muhammed Buhari to appoint "a man who is not ready for the job and who has no track record of success as an administrator".

Let the ''LEAKING OF LETTERS'' continue.
