A former Minister of Education, Oby Ezekwesili, has accused Nigeria's President Muhammadu Buhari of supporting terrorism.
 
Thiis comes after the Presidency defended the Minister of Communications and Digital Economy, Isa Pantami, over statements he made in the past supporting terrorist groups like Taliban and Al-Qaeda.
 
Buhari, through his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, threw its weight behind the Minister amid calls for his resignation.
 
The calls followed revelations which linked Pantami with terrorist organisations – Al-Qaeda and the Taliban.
 
Shehu in the statement, said: “The administration stands behind Minister Pantami.”
 
Reacting via her Twitter, Ezekwesili said: “In that singular act of siding with his Minister of Communication, @NGRPresident @MBuhari actually conveyed a message on his view of terrorism.

“Nigerians now know that his views align with that of his Minister.

“It is now left to Nigerians to convey whether we agree with them,” she tweeted.
