Pantami Gives Reasons Why He Is Not A Terrorist

Minister of communications and digital economy Isa Pantami, said he has never had issues with his Christian aides, friends and associates of many years, telling Peoples Gazette in an interview On Friday evening that the recent reports of his past controversial comments were misconstrued.


“My personal driver is Mai Keffi, a practising Christian,” Mr Pantami told The Gazette by telephone. “I also have a Christian, Ms Nwosu, as my secretary and Dr Femi, also a Christian, as my technical adviser.”


“If I did not like Christians or I did not see them as my brothers and sisters, I would not have been working with them for so long,” the minister said. “I employed more Christians than Muslims on my staff because I believe in merit and competence over ethnic or tribal sentiments.”
