“You disrespected me because I’m a woman” – Abike Dabiri tells Pantami

Chairman of Nigerians in Diaspora Commission (NIDCOM), Abike Dabiri-Erewa, has said theMinister of Communication and Digital Economy, Isa Ali Pantami, disrespected her because she is a woman.

The Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) and NIDCOM have been at war over office spaces in the NCC building in Abuja.

Mrs Dabiri-Erewa had on Saturday alleged that armed security operatives acting on the orders of Mr Pantami chased NIDCOM staff out of an office allocated to it in the NCC building by the Federal Government.

The NCC disproved the allegations in a statement on Sunday.

Responding on Sunday to a report about the incident, Pantami said on Twitter that Dabiri-Erewa made up the story.

“THIS IS A FAT LIE FROM HER: The owner of the building @NgComCommission has faulted her lies on their social media platforms. The minister has never given that directives to any gunman. We need to be very objective in reporting. I have never sent any gunmen there, & I have no one,” he wrote.

The NIDCOM boss replied: “An Islamic scholar should not lie Hon Minister. (Phd) You did that to me cos I am a woman. Your disrespect for women is legendary Left the ugly incident behind me since Feb. But pls release all our office eguipment. Public office is transient. @DrIsaPantami.”
