The Minister of Communication and Digital Economy, Isa Pantami, has described the statement made by the Chairman of the Nigerians in Diaspora Commission, Hon. Abike Dabiri-Erewa as a “fat lie”.
Dabiri-Erewa had accused Pantami of ordering armed gunmen to throw out the agency’s staff from an office that the Nigeria Communication Commission gave to them.
But the Minister in his reaction through his verified Twitter handle said he never gave any directive to any gunman to dislocate the NIDCOM staff.
He said: “THIS IS A FAT LIE FROM HER: The owner of the building Nigerian Communication Commission (NCC) has faulted her lies on their social media platforms.
“The minister has never given that directives to any gunman.
“We need to be very objective in reporting.
“I have never sent any gunmen there, and I have no one.”
