… Islamic cleric, Sheikh Gumi tells President Buhari to resign over incessant killings, general insecurity
… Says he wants to extend the same advice he gave to former President Jonathan to his “own brother”
… That to be fair to himself, bloodshed now more than Jonathan’s administration
… Insists that since he called on Jonathan to resign, he should also call on Buhari to resign immediately
CITING inability to secure the country from marauding criminals which have led to the loss of lives and properties on a daily basis, and Islamic scholar, Sheikh Ahmad Gumi has asked President Muhammadu Buhari to resign. The Islamic scholar, who spoke while addressing a Muslim gathering as seen in a video by SaharaReporters yesterday, said he gave the same advice to erstwhile President Goodluck Jonathan and would be giving the same to his “own brother” who appears to be less democratic even than Jonathan. “During the Jonathan era, when blood was flowing, I criticized him because he was not doing enough. Why I blamed Jonathan with blood in his hands was because Boko Haram was putting bombs everywhere and the government was not doing enough.
“Because they killed under your regime, you’re responsible for that matter. If you have done your best, I can say Allah can forgive you, but if you are relaxed, no, Allah cannot forgive you. “So, the same thing now; the bloodshed now is more than the bloodshed during Jonathan’s regime. So, now, you judge yourself to be fair. Our religion is a religion of fairness. We are fair to ourselves. During Jonathan when blood was flowing in churches, mosques, and streets, I said let him resign because he could not control it. He could not handle it. I said, resign with immediate effect. “When people are dying everywhere and the president and governors are attending wedding ceremonies, that’s what I mean by ‘I don’t care.’ It is either if I’m true to myself. As I called for the resignation of Jonathan, I should call for the resignation of President Buhari with immediate effect and the government papers (media) should carry it also. “Even Jonathan, as bad as he was, he was more democratic.
When he saw there was a problem, he relinquished power, and he said I don’t want blood,” Gumi said. Speaking further, the cleric said he had two options, either to apologize to Jonathan By Mark Mayah, Lagos Benin Republic files fresh charges against Sunday Igboho By Emmanuel Obisue YORUBA Nation activist, Sunday Adeyemo, popularly known as Sunday Igboho, will face fresh charges Benin Republic authorities and would be held in custody pending the conclusion of the investigation against him by the Cour D’Appel De Cotonou.

He said he was not left with a third option, insisting that Buhari should resign for not tackling insecurity. “Now, I have one or two options. If I cannot tell my own brother what I have told this man, then I should take an airplane from Abuja to Jonathan and say, forgive me for castigating you in public. Either seeking an apology or castigating President Buhari, there is no third option,” Gumi added.
