Abike Dabiri-Erewa, chairman of the Nigerians in Diaspora Commission NIDCOM, has replied Isa Pantami, Minister of Communications and Digital Economy, who denied her claim that he sent armed men to chase members of the Commission from an office given to them by the Nigerian Communications Commission NCC.
Dabiri-Erewa in an interview with SaharaReporters, accused the Minister of sending gunmen to take over her office in February. The Minister in a swift reaction via his Twitter handle, denied the allegation, saying it is a fat lie from her.
She has since taken to her Twitter handle to reply Pantami. Dabiri told the Minister who is an Islamic scholar ”not to lie.” According to her, his disrespect for women is legendary.
”An Islamic scholar should not lie Hon Minister .( Phd)You did that to me cos I am a woman .Your disrespect for women is legendary Left the ugly incident behind me since Feb. But pls release all our office eguipment.Public office is transient .
