He recently revealed this via an online interview, and Nigerians have been reacting.
According to him, bringing Islamic values to modern government and trying to impose the will on everybody will not work from Gumi, and he should stop trying to provoke the South.
He added that bringing people like Pantami and others, who are known fundamentalists, and have a track record of Islamic fundamentalism into government, to legitimize them as nice guys would further destabilise the country.
His words, “Now I can see that the son has taken the mantle of his father and he’s speaking nothing but absolute nonsense. He speaks for a large segment of people in the core north who are misguided and simply don’t know any better and I think this is the sort of thing that upsets many of us. Nobody can tell me that it’s right and proper for him to say that if Pantami is removed that we will regret it. I mean who the hell does he think he is. Who do they think they are? We all own this country and let me put this to him right here on this programme.”
“But since you poked this to me and Gumi has also said what he said, let me tell you that as long as we have people like Pantami in government and those that think like him in government, that government, our people and their people will regret it because there are always consequences to every action. It’s just a question of time.”
“You go there, pretend to be a democrat but in fact what you’re doing is bringing Islamic values to modern government and trying to impose your will on everybody also, through stealth and guile, you bring in people like Pantami and others who are known fundamentalists and have a track record of Islamic fundamentalism into government, legitimize them as nice guys.”
“When you say you’ll lead Muslims to march into a Christian community to kill Christians, this is unacceptable to us and for Gumi to say a such person is a good man, it troubles me immensely. This same Gumi is a man who negotiates with Fulani terrorists all the time. He is the man that tells us it is Christian soldiers that are killing your people and not the Muslim.”
“If you really want Nigeria to remain together, they better learn to keep their mouths shut and stop insulting southerners, middle belters, Christians, stop provoking us, stop killing us and telling us that you own this country and every one of us. We cant be slaves, I will never be a slave to anybody, what I mean by that is if you don’t stop then you’ll see another dimension of this struggle.”
