Presidency says Adeosun’s certificate scandal is worse than Pantami’s links to terrorism (video)
There is news regarding the Dr Isa Pantami Minister of Communications and Digital Economy.
After the viral video that linked the Dr Isa Pantami to terrorists groups the Presidency has maintained its position in support of the minister.
Mr Garba Shehu compared the case of Pantami with that of former minister of finance Mrs Kemi Adeosun while appearing as a guest on Channels Television’s Politics Today on Friday.
According to Mr Garba, had Pantam comitted forgery like Adeosun he believes the Presidency would have acted differently
He said, “If Pantami had forged a certificate to come into office, the attitude (of the Presidency) would have been different,”
“In the second case which is that of Pantami, you are probing the thoughts and this what Americans have called ‘McCarthyism’.
“You search the inner recesses of the minds of individuals, bring out things they have said, or they are about to say, or you think they would say, and use that against them.”
Adeosun, was appointed as the Minister of Finance by President Muhammadu Buhari in November 2015 after a report emerged that she failed to participate in the compulsory National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) forcing the 54-year-old to resign as a minister in September 2018 after a widespread call for her removal.
