The Minister of Communications and Digital Economy, Dr Isa Pantami has debunked reports alleging that the United States placed him on a terror watch list for alleged ties with the late Boko Haram founder, Mr ohammed Yusuf.
Mr Pantami, an Islamic cleric, also said he has been preaching against the terrorist sect for over 15 years.
Late Mr Yusuf, founder of the Boko Haram Terrorist Group was killed in 2009 in Nigeria’s North-East.
Also, Mr Pantami advised Nigerians who were yet to link their Subscriber Identification Modules with their valid National Identity Numbers to do so before May 6, 2021.
He said the Buhari administration was poised to expose criminal elements through the NIN-SIM data linkage.
