‘I Was Young But Now I Am Matured’, Pantami Renounces Comments On Terrorists

After coming under fire over his alleged link with terrorist group, Minister of Communications and Digital Economy, Isa Pantami, has renounced his past controversial comments.

Pantami made the controversial statement on terrorist groups including Taliban and Al-Qaeda.

In a viral video recorded many years ago which was later confirmed by his lawyer, Michael Numa, the minister was seen engaging the late Boko Haram leader, Mohammed Yusuf, in a public debate where he declared that he was always happy when infidels were massacred.

Responding to the backlash, the minister said he was young when he made the radical comments, adding that he is now matured and now knows better.

The minister made this known while answering questions during his daily Ramadan lecture at Annor Mosque in Abuja on Saturday.

He said:

For 15 years, I have moved round the country while educating people about the dangers of terrorism. I have traveled to Katsina, Gombe, Borno, Kano states and Difa in Niger Republic to preach against terrorism.

“I have engaged those with Boko Haram ideologies in different places. I have been writing pamphlets in Hausa, English and Arabic. I have managed to bring back several young persons who have derailed from the right path.

“Some of the comments I made some years ago that are generating controversies now were based on my understanding of religious issues at the time, and I have changed several positions taken in the past based on new evidence and maturity.

“I was young when I made some of the comments; I was in university, some of the comments were made when I was a teenager. I started preaching when I was 13, many scholars and individuals did not understand some of international events and therefore took some positions based on their understanding, some have come to change their positions later,”
