Sheikh Ahmad Gumi who is the Controversial Islamic Cleric, has finally reacted to terrorist attacks on the Guards Brigade and some other places in Abuja.

Gumi had reiterated that insecurity should be expected because President Muhammadu Buhari rewards failure with an Ambassadorial appointment.

He was reacting to the Federal Government’s plan to sanction the BBC Africa Eye and Daily Trust over their recent reports on the issue of politics of insecurity.

A statement by Gumi blamed illiteracy for the insecurity in the North.

“What do you expect from a society (Fulani) that was left in total ignorance and lack of education, especially when their primary means of livelihood (cattle) has been completely rustled by other criminal elements within and outside our security agencies without any effort by the government to address the injustice.

“As I talk to you now, cattle rustling has not stopped. Many law-abiding Fulanis have fallen victims to the official extortion of their cows. I have well-documented evidence involving some security agents in which I personally intervened. How do you expect as a government to address insecurity, especially related to Fulani bandits without addressing such instances of extortion and rustling?

“When a Commander-in-Chief rewards failure with ambassadorial appointments in a system and a society that records increased attacks, when security agencies cannot even protect Abuja and especially when the Guards Brigade cannot even protect themselves not to talk of the President, then why blame the media for such failure and ineptitude for reporting it?” the cleric queried.

In another report, Ahmed Gumi while reacting to APC Presidential candidate’s choice of a Muslim Muslim ticket has revealed that the All Progressives Congress, APC, presidential candidate, Bola Tinubu’s choice of running mate has nothing to do with religion.

The media space has been flooded with reactions of many stakeholders of the party and other opposition who are registering their grievances on Tinubu’s decision to pick a fellow Muslim, Kashim Shettima as his running mate for the 2023 presidential elections.

Many APC party members have also continued to resign their membership of the party since the announcement was made on Sunday. However, some party members have argued that there is nothing wrong with the decision, stressing that the only way the party can emerge victorious in 2023 is to have a Muslim vice presidential candidate.
