Jama’atu Izalatil Bid’ah Wa’ikamatis Sunnah (JIBWIS) in Bauchi State has said that the allegation levelled against the Minister of Communication and Digital Economy, Dr Isa Ali Pantami, is targeted at the President, Muhammadu Buhari.

JIBWIS equally pleaded with the federal government to take action against people with “questionable character who have never hidden their desire to see the failure and disintegration of Nigeria.”

Bauchi State Chairman of JIBWIS, Barrister Garba Hassan, who disclosed in a statement made available to newsmen at the weekend, said: “We call on the Federal Government and security agencies to double their efforts in the area of confronting the various security challenges being faced by the country.

“Issues having to do with intelligence gathering should be accorded serious attention.”

JIBWIS defended the Minister over an alleged link to Al-Qaeda, saying that JIBWIS observed with “dismay that the pull-him-down war being waged against Dr Pantami in his current position as a senior member of President Buhari’s cabinet is nothing other than the pursuit of the sheer hatred, grudges and ill-will being nursed against the President himself.”

He said the allegations were leveled by “both known and hidden enemies of the administration who have, from the word go, never missed any opportunity to express negative, low and mischievous opinion about the government to the extent of openly supporting agitations and attempt to bring the whole system down.

“Basically, the present campaign of calumny, blackmail and hatred against the truly patriotic, performing and responsible Dr. Isa Ali Pantami is actually in furtherance of the agenda hatched long ago to do everything possible to discredit the present administration,” JIBWIS claimed.
