  • Sheikh Ahmad Gumi says Nigeria’s next president is going to meet a huge mess caused by the Buhari administration
  • Gumi advised that Nigeria’s next leader needs to be intelligent and supported by men with acumen
  • The prominent cleric warned that if the country’s next president treat terrorism with kid gloves, insurgency will get worse 

Prominent Nigerian Islamic cleric, Sheikh Ahmad Gumi, says he feels pity for Nigeria’s next president.

In an article he wrote and seen by Legit.ng, Gumi said the next commander-in-chief has to act “quickly and carefully” when he assumes office.

He said:

“The presidency, which represents the brain, is not getting the true picture of the grassroots suffering and the excruciating poverty breaking the masses because the feedback system is attacked by corruption, wickedness, and immorality. 

“If the next president also follows the same trajectory, thinking that the present government was only dealing with the criminals with kid gloves, then a greater insurgency will definitely ensue.”

The cleric said the country should not be governed by a sectional or regional politician but one who has a national appeal.

Earlier, Sheikh Gumi faulted the measures of the federal government towards the Boko Haram insurgency in northern Nigeria, stating that both sides of the divide committed crimes.

According to Punch newspaper, Gumi also agreed that the banditry in the northwest has an ethnic undertone.
