People Are Talking About Killings In Nigeria As If It Has Never Happened Before, Garba Shehu Says

 Senior Special Assitant to President, Garba Shehu, has lamented that the way killings are being reported under the Muhammadu Buhari-led administration is like it had never happened before.

Garba Shehu explained that killings had been in existence since forever and President Buhari seems to be a target in the way it is being reported now. 

Speaking on Channels’ Politics Today, the spokesman, who also answered questions on the ongoing controversy surrounding the embattled Communications Minister, Isa Pantami, said that those who “stand in criticism of the minister are not willing to forgive him.” 

Garba Shehu, reacting to the comparison of Pantami’s case to alleged forgery that consumed former Minister of Finance, Kemi Adeosun, said the cases are different and opined that the latter was more critical than the terrorism accusation against Pantami. 

He also stated that if Pantami forged a certificate before coming to office, the attitude from the Presidency would have been different. 

The Presidency has been hit with heavy criticisms following the backing of Pantami in the midst of terrorism comments, which the minister said were utterances made ignorantly, stating that he is now more mature and knows better.
