Governor of Rivers State, Nyesom Wike has attacked the federal government following its refusal to sack the Minister of Communications and Digital Economy, Dr. Isa Pantami over his alleged links with terrorists.

He also called on Pantami to do the honorable thing by resigning from his position.

The governor noted that in an ideal society, an allegation that the United States of America has placed a serving minister on its watch list as regards terrorism should jolt any government into action.

Wike stated this during an interview with the African Independent Television in Port Harcourt, the Rivers State capital on Tuesday and relayed by his Special Assistant on Media, Kelvin Ebiri.

“If it was really where a government is working if an American government says your minister is on a watch list, it calls for concern for you to say ‘look there is a problem’. The moment a high government official is on a watch list as regards terrorism, no government can fold its hands and allow it,” he added.

The governor said, “The minister ought to have resigned from the government immediately the information about his extremist views in support of terror groups became a matter of public discourse.”

The governor described as worrisome the decision of the federal government to remain mute amidst the raging controversy about the minister’s sympathy for global terrorist groups, saying, “I don’t understand why a reasonable government will allow such a person to be in the cabinet.”

He noted the All Progressives Congress-led federal government was known for its proclivity to shield persons of questionable characters, even when the country’s secret service presents overwhelming evidence against such individuals.

“But you were here when DSS wrote a report against (Ibrahim) Magu. What happened? Look, I have never seen a country that your secret service wrote a report about the nominee of Mr. President, questioning his character and the rest, and that he is not appointable. What happened? So, what are you talking about? What removed Magu is a power play.”
