The Muslim Rights Concern (MURIC) has urged President Muhammadu Buhari to reject calls seeking for the resignation of the Minister of Communications and Digital Economy, Isa Ali Pantami.

"Reject Calls For Pantami’s Resignation, Its Meant To Rubbish The Minister" - MURIC Tells Buhari 3

KanyiDaily recalls that Pantami has been under pressure to step down from office over some comments he allegedly made several years ago in support of Al-Qaeda, Taliban and Boko Haram.

Reacting in a statement by the Executive Director, Professor Ishaq Akintola, MURIC asked Buhari to read between the lines and reject voices calling for Pantami’s resignation, saying “the idea is to rubbish the communications minister.”

“The call for the resignation of the Minister of Communications and Digital Planning, Dr. Isa Pantami, over remarks made as a teenager and long before he became a minister is quite worrisome. The question we are asking is ‘Why now’? Why were those radical remarks not mentioned before now?

“None of the nouveau critics who are yelling today has mentioned any official misdemeanour committed by Dr. Pantami while in office as DG of NITDA or since he started serving as minister. So, the call for his resignation is therefore an afterthought. It is belated and it should be ignored by patriotic Nigerians.

“We call on President Muhammadu Buhari to ignore the ranting of Pantami’s critics. We advise Mr. President to read between the lines. The idea is to rubbish the communication minister.

“But it is more than that. They want to score a cheap political point with their demand for Pantami’s resignation. It is also a ploy to weaken this administration.

“It is our contention that the brilliant initiative of NIN, which is capable of exposing rogues and criminals is behind the attacks on him and calls for his resignation.

“The NIN initiative, which came from Pantami is giving unscrupulous elements sleepless nights and their desire is to stop it. They want our state of insecurity to continue. Mr. President must not allow the enemies of Nigeria to have their way. Pantami is not the real target. President Buhari is the ultimate.”

 

KanyiDaily recalls that MURIC had also asked Pantami not succumb to cheap blackmail form people seeking his resignation because he did nothing wrong.
