Minister Pantami denies having link with terrorists

Isa Pantami, minister of communications and digital economy, has denied having any link with terrorists as alleged in media reports.

The report was said to have emanated from DAILY INDEPENDENT on Sunday.

The report claimed that before his appointment as a minister, Ibrahim was a known Islamic preacher and held what was termed ‘dangerous views’ against US government with allegiance to Al Qaeda.

The minister while reacting to the report widespread that the United States government allegedly placed him on a watchlist for reported links with Mohammed Yusuf, the founder of Boko Haram, said he has been preaching against the doctrines of Boko Haram and similar groups, endangering his life in the process.

“My lectures against the doctrines and all other evil people have been available for over 15 years, including debates that endangered my life against many criminals in Nigeria,” he wrote via his Twitter handle on Monday.

“By the Almighty, no amount of intimation will stop @IsaPantami from implementing the good policies of President Muhammadu Buhari, GCFR on security.”

The minister on his Twitter handle also gave his words on retraction from a news site.
