A former Minister of Education, Oby Ezekwesili, has said that President Muhammadu Buhari’s statement publicly supporting the Minister of Communications and Digital Economy, Isa Pantami, shows where he stands on terrorism.
Buhari, through his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, threw its weight behind the Minister amid calls for his resignation.
The calls followed revelations which linked Pantami with terrorist organisations – Al-Qaeda and the Taliban.
Shehu in the statement, said: “The administration stands behind Minister Pantami.”
Reacting via her Twitter, Ezekwesili said: “In that singular act of siding with his Minister of Communication, @NGRPresident @MBuhari actually conveyed a message on his view of terrorism.
“Nigerians now know that his views align with that of his Minister.
“It is now left to Nigerians to convey whether we agree with them,” she tweeted.
