Loud calls for Nigeria’s minster Pantami to resign
There are loud calls on Nigeria’s Communications and Digital Economy Minister, Sheikh Ali Pantami, to resign his position, the Difference has gathered.
The calls which are loud on social media have begun to trend on twitter under the hashtag, #PantamiResign.
The clamour is predicated on the Minister’s alleged previously recorded disposition to terrorist groups.
An initial denial of the allegation had forced Te Independent newspaper which had published one of the first stories on the saga to post a retraction.
However the issue has refused to go away with several commentators insisting that if there had been a link between the Minister and any related terrorist personalities and verbiage, that indeed is enough reason to ease him off his perch as minister, more so at a time when terrorist and insurgent activity is taking such a huge toll on the nation.
