As Nigerians continue to seek for the sack of the Honourable Minister of Communications and Digital Economy, Dr. Isa Ali Pantami, over an alleged support towards terrorism in the past, the Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria (PFN) joined in this call, warming that if President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration continue to ignore Nigerians on a sensitive national issues like terrorism, then, grievous consequence await the nation. Stressing that no serious government will retain any of his or her appointee on a serious allegation that has to do with an act of terrorism whether past or present, unless there are more than the eyes cannot see.
These were parts of the press statement released earlier today by the Media department of PFN, through its National President, Bishop Francis Wale Oke, and its National Publicity Secretary, Bishop Emmah Gospel Isong. PFN however, noted that, it is dangerous for Buhari-FG led government to defend the indefensible, that Pantami should honourable resign since his confession of his involvements in sharing beliefs with terrorists is real. The Statement reads:
”That Pantami is still in Buhari’s government, tells much about who we are and the mockery that trails. What is the man still doing in government; why has he not resigned or why has he not been sacked by the government? More questions than answers or are we running a government of abracadabra, the more you look, the less you see?”
“To us at the PFN, the Buhari’s government is not sincere in its alleged war against Boko Haram, killer herdsmen, and other criminalities. Do we have to look beyond our shoulders for the sponsors of the mindless killings and bloodshed currently ravaging our country? The answer is no! The government knows them”
PFN however noted that irrespective of divergent religious beliefs in the country, no single region can claim superiority, Nigeria belongs to all of us “Regardless of our religions, where we come from, and who we are, Nigeria belongs to us all as enshrined in our constitution. That’s sacrosanct and must strictly be adhered to and respected by all”
. “We want to urge President Buhari to rise above primordial sentiments and sectional attachments in dealing with the issue at hand. Frankly speaking, it’s no longer at ease for the nation and its people. We want Nigeria that we can proudly call our own. The present one we are all living in is nothing to write home about”
