MURIC Lauds FG For Standing By Isa Pantami


By John Imade (AGENDAWATCHDOG) – The Muslim Rights Concern (MURIC) has lauded the Presidency for staunchly standing by the embattled Minister of Communications and Digital Planning, Dr Isa Ali Ibrahim Pantami in the face of raucous calls for his resignation following radical views expressed by him in the past in support of terrorist organizations.

MURIC gave this commendation today via a statement issued by its Director, Professor Ishaq Akintola, in which it also called on Pantami’s critics to give peace a chance by not holding on tenaciously to radical comments made twenty-five (25) or more years ago, when he was still easily impressionable, especially as the he had recanted his views.

This came in the wake of the presidency’s unwavering support for Pantami following raucous calls from some quarters for his resignation/sack from President Muahammadu Biuhari’s cabinet consequent to sympathetic views purportedly expressed by him in the past in support of extremist groups such as al-Qaeda and Boko Haram.

Panami had reacted by saying he no longer holds such extreme views, but some Nigerians called on him to resign from public office.
