A member of the House of Representatives, Yesufu Gagdi representing Kanke and Kanam Federal Constituency in Plateau state has blamed Nigerians who knew the past post-Taliban views of the Minister of Communication and Digital Economy, Pantami, but refused to speak up during his ministerial Screening in 2019.
According to the Hon. Yesufu Gagdi, "Nigerians that have access to this very important information, what stopped them from hitting the media with it at the time the National Assembly had the power to reject the nomination of the President or to confirm Pantami.?...."
Nigerians have been reacting to this disclosure by Hon. Gagdi with many lambasting the House of Representatives for not rising up to their primary responsibility of representing Nigerians.
Many Nigerians, in their reactions, felt the House of Representatives members have no excuse to offer on the matter because Nigerians entrusted them with doing the needful as in the case of Pantami. What is your take on this? Is the House of Representatives member right in blaming Nigerians? Who is to blame?
