    CAN president blasts presidency, Says Patami can not changepatami

    The Christian Association of Nigeria has lambasted the Presidency for defending the Minister of Communications and Digital Economy, Isa Pantami, and his past radical pro-Taliban comments.

    The apex Christian body in the country also said non-Muslims have been the target of the minister right from his days as Chief Imam of Abubakar Tafawa Balewa University mosque in Bauchi State.

    CAN General Secretary, Joseph Daramola, stated this in an exclusive interview with The PUNCH on Friday.

    Pantami has been under fire of late over past pro-Taliban comments supporting the activities of terrorist groups including Taliban and Al-Qaeda.

    In audio clips that resurfaced lately, the minister who has been an Islamic scholar for about three decades also once declared that he was always happy when infidels – non-Muslims – were massacred.

    Though he has since renounced the comments, blaming immaturity, many Nigerians continue to demand his sacking or resignation.

    But in a statement on Thursday, presidential spokesman, Garba Shehu ruled out the possibility of the sacking of the minister when he said, “The minister has, rightly, apologized for what he said in the early 2000s. The views were absolutely unacceptable then, and would be equally unacceptable today, were he to repeat them. But he will not repeat them – for he has publicly and permanently condemned his earlier utterances as wrong.

      Let the presidency continue to deeive itself over the condemnation of Isa Pantami’s extremist views. I don’t know if Garba Shehu have seen where leopard changed its spot before.
