Minister of Communication and Digital Economy, Ali Isa Pantami, has renounced the contoversial comments he made about Al Qaeda and Taliban.
Pantami has been under fire over the comments in which he endorsed the activities of the terrorist groups.
Many Nigerians have called on President Muhammadu Buhari to sack the minister as many argued that the data of Nigerians are not safe with him.
But, while answering questions during his daily Ramadan lecture at Annor Mosque in Abuja on Saturday, April 17, 2021, Pantami said some of the comments were made when he was a teenager.
The minister added that controversial comments were based on his understanding of religious issues at the time.
