The Minister for Communications, Isa Patami and the Chairman of Nigerians in Diaspora Commission, Abike Dabiri have taken it to twitter to trade insults over office space.
Mrs Dabiri in an interview with Sahara Reporters had claimed that the Minister denied her agency an office space given to the Diaspora Commission by the Nigeria Communications Commission (NCC).
Patami on Sunday reacted, saying that the claim by Dabiri is a “lie”
“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, and I have no one.”
In what appears to be a full blown row, Dabiri responded with her own salvo.
“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 please release all our office equipment. Public office is transient.”
