Again, Gumi urges Buhari to resign, insists his government has failed
Prominent Northern Islamic scholar, Sheikh Ahmad Gumi, has insisted that President Muhammadu Buhari should resign, saying that his government has failed.Gumi, a renowned Islamic cleric, particularly in Northern region, who stated this during the closing of Ramadan Lecture for 2018, at Shaikh Sanusi Khalil Mosque in Rigachikun, pointed out that he has no sympathy for any political party in Nigeria as speculated.
Gumi debunked the rumour that he was critical of the government of the All Progressives Congress, (APC) because of his sympathy for the opposition Peoples Democratic Party, PDP. According to him, the rumour was intensified judging from a picture he took with two PDP leaders and strident criticism of the administration of President Buhari. However, Gumi, explained that his criticisms of Buhari’s government are based on his quest for justice in Nigeria.
Reacting on the picture he sat in-between former Vice President Atiku Abubakar and former Kaduna State governor, Ramalan Yero, the cleric argued that the shot was taken at a public event years ago.“There was a picture that was snapped at a mosque in Rigachikun. When I was invited to attend a wedding fatiha, on arrival I met him (Mr Yero) and former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar, at the mosque.
“Then he (Atiku) was still in APC as a member and contested against President Buhari at the primaries, while Yero was then in PDP as a governor in the state. “I was asked to sit in their middle so I did. Now the picture is in circulation that I am a PDP member, that PDP paid me to work for them.”Gumi said he does not look at any Muslim as a PDP or APC member. “Rather, I see him as my Muslim brother. If he does justice I’m with him, whoever”.
