Calls for the resignation of the minister of communications and Digital Economy, Dr Isa Pantami have continued, twenty hours after he renounced his views on Al Qaeda and Taliban.
Pantami on Saturday said the past extremist ideas he was championing were due to age, immaturity, and limited knowledge.
This excuse however, has not calmed the storm which is threatening to sweep him from office.
Many Nigerians continue to put pressure on social media, calling for the minister to step down from his post.
As at Sunday non, #PantamiResignNow was trending at number 3 on TwitterNG
Some asked that he fired by President Muhammadu Buhari
Today is 18th of April, 2021 and Isa Pantami, Al-Qaeda sympathizer and Osama Bin Laden’s supporter is still the Minister of Communications and Digital Economy in the Federal Republic of Nigeria. #PantamiResignNow
Now that Isa Pantami has renounced his extremist ideology, he should do the right thing and resign from office.
If he truly wants to make up for his past, he should continue the work of engaging and de-radicalising young jihadis, not handle national affairs. #PantamiResignNow
