Pantami Alleges Plot To Further Blackmail Him


Nigeria’s Minister of Communications and Digital Economy, Isa Pantami has raised an alarm over alleged plans by some people to release doctored videos to tarnish his image.

Pantami in a statement by his spokesperson, Uwa Suleiman said some people have concluded plans to release some doctored videos of him in a compromising position.

The statement however failed to explain what the Minister means by a compromising position but said Pantami won’t allow them to tarnish his hard-earned image and credibility.

The embattled Minister who is facing allegations of having ties with terrorist groups including Al-Qaeda and some others noted that he is a victim of a well-coordinated and richly funded campaign against him.

He warned that there will be consequences for actions been taken by those he accused of perpetrating lies and half-truths about him.

“We are in receipt of credible intelligence that the same forces who have been championing a well-coordinated and richly funded campaign against the Honourable Minister of Communications and Digital Economy, Dr Isa Ali Ibrahim Pantami, are now unto the next stage of their diabolic project,” Mrs Suleiman said.

“This time around, the forces of evil are shopping for willing partners as well as their usual avenues, to release doctored videos purporting to show the Honourable Minister in an alleged compromising condition, as a way of creating injury on his image.

“We are least surprised by this recent move which is a clear intensification of their desperation, having failed in their assault on the personality of the Honourable Minister, despite their previous efforts.

“After concocting lies and half-truths linking the Honourable Minister with terrorism, despite his well-documented stance against Boko Haram and similar groups, these adversaries went to the extent of doctoring a document with capacity to endanger national security. It was a relief for peace-loving Nigerians that the gimmick also failed to strike that sensitive chord.

“This notice, therefore, is to alert the public to the latest ungodly plan and to warn the perpetrators about the consequences of such action. The Honourable Minister will not sit idly to see his hard-earned reputation as a respected community leader, Islamic Scholar and public servant being muddled in the mud by paid agents with no adherence to truth and fear of God.”
