The audio recordings of the minister of Communications and Digital Economy, Isa Pantami, allegedly expressing support for Islamic extremist groups, Taliban and Al-Qaeda, are not enough to discourage some Nigerians from expressing support for the Sheikh.
Some Nigerians on twitter have been demanding the resignation of the minister over alleged links with Islamic terrorist groups.
In a counter move, supporters of Pantami are trending #PantamiWillStay on twitter.

Had unravelled 33 projects during the pandemic. Honoured as an "IT MAN OF THE YEAR by (NIGCOMSAT)." The trail blazer is changing the narratives. These successes could be the reasons some people, both internal and external, are not happy about. Link that NIN oo.#PantamiWillStay pic.twitter.com/eJWImMmI3S

First, they lied that @DrIsaPantami is on the US Terror Watch List! Then retracted & apologised. Now it's manipulating old videos, asking the US to place him on it's terror watch list, in a futile hatchet job, but whoever God has favoured, haters conspire in vain #PantamiWillStay pic.twitter.com/OeEtg386ho
