Nigerian Government Battles To Save Pantami As Reps Plan Debate

The Presidency may have ruled out the possibility of sacking the Minister of Communications and Digital Economy, Isa Pantami.

The Presidency said Pantami’s ordeals was not about his past utterances but about his current job as a minister.

This is just as the House of Representatives said members were ready to debate the issues around the minister.

The Presidency in a statement on Thursday said Pantami’s ordeal in the hands of those calling for his sacking was not about his past utterances but about his current job as a minister.

The Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, made the Presidency’s position know in a statement titled, ‘Statement by the Presidency on recent campaign against the Minister of Communications and Digital Economy.’

The Presidency aligned itself with the submission of the embattled minister that he was young when he made those statements and that his position had since changed.

Shehu said the embattled minister had been leading the charge against illegal data deductions and pricing; revolutionising the government’s virtual public engagement to respond to COVID-19 and saved taxpayers’ money.
