A journalist named Abdulaziz Abdulaziz has taken to his verified Twitter page to plead for Mercy towards Isa Pantami.
Knowing that Isa Pantami has been in the news for a while and Nigerians are doing all they can to dig up the skeletons which are hidden in his name, he has asked that they do it carefully.
Isa Pantami was lately exposed for having very unconventional and harmful opinions as regards a terrorist sector in the country and the world which is one of the reasons he’s under investigation by the US.
In line with this, Nigerians have been on the lookout and hopeful that he would resign from the service or be sacked by the president.
Abdulaziz in his statement has pleaded on behalf of Pantami, saying “On @DrIsaPantami:
Yes, public officers deserve all the scrutiny. But while we’re at it we’ve to be thorough, fair & nuanced.
Yes, we can dig the past but passing judgement would have to alongside context and current realities. A lot of people have had a severed past. We all have a past. Not everyone will escape if our past actions and speeches are used against our present positions. Opinions and stands do change in the face of new knowledge or facts, or even maturity. And being progressive, other than dogmatic is whole mark of great minds.”
Nigerians have reacted to this message to them by the journalist by making a reminder of how he solely exposed Kemi Adeosun for using a forged NYSC certificate.
