Read Why Sowore Knocks Wike For Saying Pantami Should Resign Over His Alleged Links With Terrorists

The allegation that, Dr Isa Pantami, the honorable minister of Communication and Digital Economy is having links with foreign Terrorists groups/organizations is beginning to create more surprising scenes between persons that are hitherto not expected to start exchanging criticizing words among themselves on social media.

In the recent days, the call for Dr Pantami to resign as one of the current Ministers, serving the Federal Republic of Nigeria over the allegation, have grown very strong. A lot of notable Nigerians, including strong critics of president Muhammadu Buhari, and his administration are all contributing greatly to the call against the embattled minister.

For instance, persons like Reno Omokri, Femi Fani-Kayode, Comrade Deji Adeyanju, Omoyele Sowore, and other big critics of the president have being doing everything possible to have the minister relinquishing his position as member of the Federal executive council.

As the list of notable Nigerians calling for the head of the minister continue to increase, the executive governor of Rivers State, Nyesom Wike have also joined the league of these set of Nigerians who doesn't want Pantami to continue in office, while the allegation is still hanging on his neck.

In his words, governor Wike who made the call on his Twitter handle says, it will be wrong for Pantami to continue in office as Minister. He said if he is in the shoes of the minister, he would have resigned from the position by now.

The tweet was picked up by Channels Television, and converted to news on their Twitter handle. While tweeters were reacting to the call from the serving governor of the oil-rich state, Omoyele Sowore, the publisher of the Sahara Reporters showed up through his handle as well.

The self-acclaimed activist wasted no time before attacking the governor in his own replying tweet to the development. According to Sowore, governor Wike is only playing to the gallery. Sowore never believe the governor is been realistic over his comment that, he would have resigned if he is in Pantami's shoes.

He wondered why governor Nyesom Wike who did not resign when he was caught, threatening to kill INEC staffs in Rivers State over election related matters is now saying he should have resigned if he is in the Minister's position.

Although Sowore still believe Pantami should resign as seen in his tweet, but did not want such call to come from persons like Wike. Check out the tweet from the protests-lover below:

Ordinarily, since these two persons are never in the camp of the president, but his major critics, one will not expect them to attack each other on anything that has to do with president Buhari. However, the recent words from Omoyele Sowore is a sign that, one's critics may not even be at peace with one another.

What do you have e to say about this development? Can you predict Governor Wike's response to Sowore in the nearest future? Remember, Wike too is as vocal as Sowore, this may not stop here. Wike will certainly respond Omoyele Sowore on this.
