Following Garba Shehu‘s comment and defence of Isa Pantami’s earlier comment about supporting a terrorist group, a member of the House of Representatives, representing Ede North, Ede South, Egbedore and Ejigbo Federal Constituency of Osun State, Bamidele Salam has condemned the statement released by Garba Shehu.
According to reports, the legislator noted that “the media handlers of the Presidency have become very ‘cheap’ in the way they have been communicating the thoughts of President Muhammadu Buhari on issues to Nigerians with regard to the recent surge in insecurity, hyperinflation and other economic woes bedevilling the country”.
He noted that ”not even the office of a local government Chairman deserves that kind of public communication strategy”.
This is coming after Shehu the SSA to President Buhari on Media and Publicity, made it known that the Minister of Communication and Digital Economy, Dr. Isa Pantami should be forgiven by Nigerians for his last comments in support of terrorism.
The past comment of Pantami had led to outcries from Nigerians, that he should resign immediately.
