However, the President Muhammadu Buhari Garba Shehu media aide has sided and provided support for the under fire minister. Garba Shehu said Isa Pantami is a changed man and those statements were made when he was ignorant and immature.
He said Isa Pantami no longer hold those views and therefore, he is a changed man. However, he fired warning at those that he believes are behind the cancel campaign.
