“Oh, Ya Ahmad Gumi! Oh Ahmad Gumi, now you are wandering around, addressing Fulanis, and thinking you are serving God.”

“Just because you are called a doctor or Sheikh? Woe unto you, Ahmad Gumi,”.

“To you (Gumi) and others like Pantami, who is even a minister, huh? And still a cleric? Ask yourself! Oh, clerics who savour the taste of power seasonings, ask yourselves,” he said.
