The name of Nigeria’s Minister of Communications and Digital Economy, Isa Pantami and former Minister of Finance Kemi Adeosun has been trending on social media in the past few hours and definitely as you guessed, it is not for the right reasons.
With Isa Pantami (Communication Minister) Alleged Link With Terrorist, Could Buhari Be Boko Haram’s Godfather? (A MUST READ)
The United States government has been petitioned by a civil society organization led by Deji Adeyanju, urging the administration to investigate the alleged involvement of the minister with terrorist groups.
The minister had been said to be heavily involved with some terrorist groups in the past including the Al-Queda and Talibans.
He was also reported to be public supporter and admirer of terrorists including Osama Bin Laden and has publicly praised them in the past.
According to a petition titled, ‘Terrorist Watchlist –Isa Pantami’, dated April 11, 2021 “It is alleged that he had in the past openly supported and endorsed global terrorist groups like Al-Qaeda and the Talibans.
“Pantami is said to have praised Osama Bin Laden describing him as a hero and a better Muslim than himself.
He has not renounced these views in the face of new revelations by the media. His views are extremist views and a threat to a multi religious nation like Nigeria.
“He is a senior member of President Buhari’s regime and we are of the view that a supporter of Mullah Omar and Osama Bin Laden should not hold a sensitive position and be in charge of the database of Nigerians.
We are confident that Mr. Pantami will not resign or be sacked despite the public outcry because President Buhari is drawn to men like him.
The group believed the Nigerian government wouldn’t take any action regards this and that is why they have decided to send a petition to the US government.
“We implore you to investigate these allegations and if true, place him on your terrorist watchlist permanently.
Those who express extremist views remain a threat to world peace as they support mass murder of both Christians and Muslims globally. This remains unacceptable.
“Our reply to those who say these men may have had a change of heart is that terrorists don’t repent; they are only looking for an opportunity to get close to power so they can strike harder.”
The hashtag of #KemiAdesoun has also been trending online alongside that of #PantamiResign which is already having over 30,000 retweets as of the time of filing this report.
Kemi Adesoun, a former minister of finance who hails from Ogun State resigned in Buhari’s regime after her case of alleged use of fake NYSC certificate.
After journalist, Abdulaziz Fagge defended Pantami earlier today by tweeting;
“The number of Twitter trolls feasting on an issue/person tells you the extent to which a moneyed agenda is involved. I pay no attention to Voltrons.”,
Many people have been attacking the journalist and have been asking the Buhari-led administration to have Pantami step down until the case is looked into and settled.
Buhari himself has been alleged one time of serving as God Father to the bloody Nigerian terrorist group, Boko Haram.
With the failure of the former military leader in tackling this issue of terrorism, a lot of people have been affirming the possibility that the President could actually be a godfather to the terrorist group who have killed hundreds of thousands of people since they began operations for close to ten years ago.
Buhari’s policies have been favouring these so-called terrorists by getting arrested terrorists re-habilitated back into the society without any serious punishment melted on them.
Remember when Kankara schoolboys were kidnapped in Katsina when Buhari was in the state?
The boys were released after few days without anyone knowing the condition surrounding their release. Kankara Boys‘ kidnap by Boko Haram was nothing but a poorly scripted drama to tackle Goodluck Jonathan’s failure with Chibok Girls.
Since Buhari regime, no major success have been recorded in the fight against terrorism and you all think some cabals in the Nigerian Government are not behind Boko Haram?
If Buhari could appoint someone like Pantami Isa as communication minister and would not react to the news about his alleged involvement with Boko Haram and other notable terror groups, then something fishy is going down.
I will end this with the words of Late Gen Sanni Abacha words which says;
If Insurgency Lasts More Than 24hours, Government has a hand in it
