Nigeria's Communication Minister, Pantami, Blocks Twitter Users Who Questioned His Silence On Zamfara, Katsina Killings

Nigerians on social networking platform, Twitter, are recounting how Isa Pantami, Minister of Communications and Digital Economy, blocked them for questioning him about his silence on the attacks by armed bandits in Zamfara and Katsina states.

While in the opposition in 2012, Pantami heavily criticised the handling of insurgency in Nigeria's North-East by former President, Goodluck Jonathan.

He also said in an opinion piece published on an online news platform that "leadership in Nigeria has failed" and called on Nigerians to "rise up" and change the situation.

An audio where he incited Nigerians against Jonathan over his handling of security in the country has also been making the rounds on Twitter, with many accusing him of hypocrisy now that the party he belongs to, the All Progressives Congress, was in government.

One Twitter user with the handle @mbbhuarii, questioned why he was telling Nigerians on his page not to criticise him publicly.

@mbbhuarii said, "Exactly one year since Sheikh Dr. Isa Ali Pantami blocked me. I didn't abuse or disrespect him. I only amplified the voices of those who felt that he cannot speak truth to power anymore."

Pantami in his response said, "In Islam, we admonish in public when we have no direct access. Even in the previous administration, the last time I mentioned anything in public was in 2011, not 2015."

The minister subsequently blocked @mbbhuarii shortly afterwards.

Reacting to Pantami's quelling of dissenting opinions, @Uncle_Faruk said, "If Pantami wasn't critical of the former government, trust me no one will pressure him now.

“He unfairly condemned and pressurised GEJ administration for a reason best known to him. Now he is in government and you want us to keep mute? You're stupid my brother."

Another user @jrnaib2 said, "Pantami isn't God. Pantami isn't a prophet, Pantami isn't a saint. He's just an influencer who uses his influence and did campaign for APC at the same time hold PDP responsible for bringing Boko Haram and now the narrative is still the same. So we must blame him."

Sahara reporters are just a bunch of clowns parading themselves as a journalist. If not junk journalism what do we call this? This tweets happened over a year ago since before Pantami become a minister, but unprofessional Sahara Reporters decided to dig and report it today because they are out of news.

From Top to bottom, Bubu the mumu and his despicable zombies are all monstrous hypocrites.

Let the bandits keep killing in hundreds and thousands, Let the herdsmen keep killing people, let the country burn, No problem, as long as the dullard is on the seat, No problem.

I don't care whether they speak against him or not what I know is they are filled up with junk journalism they are complete shadow of themselves. They are reporting news based on frustration and amateurishness

Just last week they did what they know best, reporting fake death news of one Islamic leader like that from the north which he came out and debunked it and sue them

You must be so pained.

In the end, it is good Buhari won in 2015 so that next time, the north will have sense.

I don't think the SE/SS that voted against him are worst off.

The North should enjoy the power they so craved. They should enjoy the Boko Haram and the bandits that came with it.

The northern leaders/elites dont like the reality of the deteriorating life back home especially insecurity issue being rehearsed to their hearing because they have woefully failed their people despite entreching themselves in every available leadership position.

Monsur Dan Ali(Former minister of defense), Senator Abdullaziz Yari etc are all from Zamfara State yet it's bedevilled by insecurity.Ahmed Khadija of the NTA that give Bubu a soft interview during the pre-election time is also from that state.

Lol....I don't expect anything from a regime that rode on a chariot of lies and hypocrisy just to clinch power...

Remember someone once said "An attack on boko haram is an attack on the North" so don't expect any action from the presidency, the best they can do is to condemn the attack publicly on social media and that's the end of that chapter...
