Abike Dabiri-Erewa, Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of NIDCOM has called Isa Pantami, minister of communications and digital economy, a liar.
The Buhari appointee also subtly laughed off Pantami's PhD title. Going further, he alleged that the minister has no respect for women.
Dabiri who disclosed this on Twitter told the minister that power is transient.
"An Islamic scholar should not lie Hon Minister .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 equipment.Public office is transient," she wrote on Twitter.
Dabiri-Erewa disclosed that the said office at the National Communication Commission (NCC) building in Abuja was allocated to the NIDCOM by the federal government, The Nation reports.
What is even more worrisome is that the NIDCOM boss claimed that the security agents with arms forced personnel of the body out of the office "on the orders of the honourable minister of Communication and Digital Economy, Dr Isa Pantami."

Dabiri-Erewa said: “I was away on an official assignment with Mr President in Addis Ababa when it happened and all my staff members were thrown into the street with all our gadgets, laptops, cameras and working tools trapped in there.
“I have a written petition to complain on this dehumanizing treatment by an agency of government against another agency of government."
Legit.ng had also reported that Pantami reacted to the allegation that he ordered gunmen to evict NIDCOM from an office complex given to it by the Nigeria Communication Commission.
Dabiri-Erewa had earlier alleged that her staff were denied access to the complex on the orders of Pantami.
She said the staff members were not even allowed to take their property after armed men sealed the office.
