The controversy surrounding Isa Pantami, the minister of communications and digital economy, has revealed the Buhari administration' s hypocrisy, according to Ayodele Fayose, former governor of Ekiti state.
Some Nigerians and organizations have petitioned President Muhammadu Buhari to fire Pantami as a result of the minister' s previous statements endorsing Al- Qaeda and the Taliban.
In response, the presidency, through presidential spokesman Garba Shehu, said that the government stands by the minister.
In a statement released on Sunday, Fayose said the uproar over Pantami has revealed the government' s hypocrisy.
" The current situation in Nigeria, where the Presidency has turned into an employer and protector of Boko Haram terrorists and armed robbers, is so appalling, " he said.
" The Isa Pantami case has shown the government' s hypocrisy and involvement even further. It' s so sad and concerning that the president' s spokespeople were the ones going from one media outlet to the next defending someone who publicly assisted terrorists. "
It is painful, according to the former governor, that Nigeria is being led by people who were once nominated as Boko Haram negotiators.
He said that the country is no longer safe to live in because the government fails to take decisive action against terrorists.
" It' s ironic that today if those in charge of the country' s affairs aren' t telling us that armed bandits must be treated as innocent until proven guilty, they' ll argue that forgery is more serious than open support for terrorists, " he said.
" Nigeria is no longer safe for us to live in as a result of their failure to take decisive action against these terrorists with whom they continue to sympathize.
" Terrorists have taken over our paths, and Nigerians, including traditional rulers, are being kidnapped right in their bedrooms. "
Nigerians have been urged to stop traveling around the country and to leave remote areas, according to Fayose.
" As a result, I advise Nigerians to stay in their domains during this time and avoid traveling across the country, " he said.
" Those who are living in remote areas should make every effort to relocate to a more populous region.
" I pray that God will bring our country back to peace and normalcy. "
