According to Yesufu, linking her NIN to her cellphone variety will have her facts in the management of a terrorist sympathizer and his cohorts.

BBOG convener and human rights activist, Aisha Yesufu has disclosed why she will no longer hyperlink her National Identification Number to her telephone quantity as required with the aid of the Federal Government.

According to Yesufu, linking her NIN to her telephone wide variety will have her data in the management of a terrorist sympathizer and his cohorts.

She disclosed this in a tweet with the hashtag #PantiMustGo which needs the sacking or resignation of the Minister of Communications and Digital Economy, Isa Pantami.


“Let me repeat categorically what I have said before. I WILL NOT BE LINKING MY NIN to my phone number! I will rather not have a phone line than willingly give my information and have it in the control of a terrorist sympathizer and his cohorts #PantamiMustGo,”
 Yesufu tweeted.

The call for Pantami’s sacking or resignation is a result of a sermon he delivered in the past which had him allegedly sympathizing with terrorist groups – Al-Qaeda and the Taliban.

Pantami was, however, backed by the Presidency through the Senior Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, who said the minister was young when he made those statements and that his position had since changed.

Reacting through a video in April, Yesufu said, “The Presidency is not Garba Shehu and Muhammadu Buhari. The Presidency is an institution and that institution should never be seen in any way whatsoever supporting someone who is now known to have been a terrorist sympathizer.

“We cannot be a nation that allows people who support terrorism to be out there in our public domain as public servants. We cannot have a minister of a sector that is so sensitive as per our information, everything under that sector – be someone who is a terrorist sympathizer, whether has been, still is, repented or not.”
