- Isa Ibrahim Pantami is Nigeria’s current Minister of communications and digital economy
- The communications minister has been facing strong criticisms from a large number of Nigerians both online and offline following his past comments and utterances as well as stance on terrorism
Many Nigerians have called for Pantami’s resignation despite the fact that the Muslim cleric turned political appointee has sought forgiveness for his past missteps.
According to a good number of Nigerians, they believe Pantami should borrow a leaf from a former Minister of Finance, Kemi Adeosun, who threw in the towel following her NYSC certificate scandal.
Currently, there are pro and anti Pantami calls for him to continue as minister as well as for him to resign.
Pantami will be seen as an honourable man if he resigns, as he will be seen as a man not cringing on to the attractions of his office.
On the other hand, Garba Shehu, a spokesman to President Muhammadu Buhari has already come out to defend Pantami, which is a pointer to the fact that the Presidency is okay with the communications minister, despite calls for his sacking or resignation.
Will Pantami still resign in the coming days as many Nigerians want him?
