First Lady, Aisha Buhari who is known for calling out some of her husband’s appointees, has shared an Instagram post which is seemingly addressed to Minister of Communication and Digital Economy, Isa Pantami.
The First Lady on Sunday September 12, shared a video of Pantami crying during one of his sermons. The minister cried after his reciter read a verse of the Holy Quran. The verse was from Surah Maryam and it read;
“That is the Garden we shall give as their own to those of Our servants who were devout.”
Pantami who cried after the verse was read, said “O Allah! Make me one of them. O Allah! Make me one of them!”
Sharing the video, Aisha attached a caption a short Hausa caption to it. The caption “A chire tsoro a yi abinda ya dace”, translated to “Be courageous to do the right thing” in English.
The Instagram post was shared three weeks after Pantami joined Yusuf, her son, with Zahra Bayero, at Bichi Central mosque in Kano. The comment section of the post was also locked.
