Governor of Rivers State, Nyesom Wike, says the Minister of Communications and Digital Economy, Dr Isa Pantami, should resign from office, irrespective of his recent volte-face on his previous support for extremist groups.
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.
