The Peoples Democratic Party on Sunday called on the Department of State Service to immediately invite the Minister of Communications and Digital Economy, Isa Pantami, for questioning over his alleged affiliations with the Taliban and Al-Qaeda.
The Party, in a statement by its National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan, in Abuja, also demanded that the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari(retd.), should immediately sack the minister, given the sensitivity of the issue at stake.

The party said its position was predicated on the heightening concerns in the public space and in the international arena of possible compromises by the communication minister.
It noted that Pantami had access to sensitive government documents and information, in addition to data of all individuals including high profile personalities in the public and private sectors as well as the traditional and faith-based circles.

“The PDP urges Nigerians to remain at alert and very sensitive to their environment, while not hesitating in providing useful information to our security agencies in the interest of our nation”

Press Release

As Judiciary workers march out all over the country to protest Government’s delay in granting the financial autonomy of the judicial arm away from the Executive, Lagos AAC salutes the resilience of JUSUN so far.

For us, the Judiciary workers strike action is a great leap for democracy. The executive arm, by it’s control of the financial life of the Judiciary, demolishes the concept of democracy thereby putting the civil space, democracy and justice on trial.

Our party is being in court over many Social injustices and we practically understand how underrepresented, underfunded, and compromised the Judiciary is. We hereby call on all good people of conscience, our comrades, and sympathizers to support JUSUN in the strike Actions especially the nationwide Protests against erring state governments.
