Following the recent publication on news platforms indicating that the honorable Minister of Communications and Digital Economy, Isa Ali Ibrahim also known as Sheikh Pantami has been put under the watch list of the intelligence wing of United States of America, personal assistant to President Muhammadu Buhari on new media has debunked the speculations.
Ahmad disclosed this via a tweet while refuting claims by a news platform, NewsWireNGR on the issue, saying the Minister has never been on the watch list of the U.S.
You have just endorsed a fake report without verifying. As a media outlet @NewsWireNGR you know exactly how to verify such reports, but no, you are here pushing a false and dangerous narrative to your thousands of followers. FYI @DrIsaPantami has never been on any US watchlist. https://t.co/p4vR5yUGQ9
