Pantami Not On US Terror Watch List, Says Presidency

0

The Personal Assistant to President Muhammadu Buhari on New Media, Bashir Ahmad, has denied reports that the United States government has placed Minister of Com­munications, Isa Pantami, on its terror watch-list.

Reports emerged on Sunday that Pantami had been placed on the list over alleged ties with a former leader of the terrorist group, Boko Haram.

The report claimed that the minister was a close confidant of the late Mohammed Yusuf, the late leader of Boko Haram.

It also claimed that Pantami had ties with Abu Quata­da al Falasimi and other Al-Qaeda leaders whom he revered and spoke highly of.

But reacting in a tweet on Monday, Bashir described the report as ‘fake news.’

He maintained that the Minister has never been on any US watchlist.

He wrote: ”You have just endorsed a fake report without verifying. For your information @DrIsaPantami has never been on any US watchlist.”
