I have no regret over my role in Obasanjo, Atiku reconciliation —Sheikh Gumi

A Kaduna State based Islamic cleric, Ahmad Gumi, has described Nigerian politicians as sharing same characteristics with prostitutes.

According to him, “there is no difference between them and the prostitutes,” hence they “jump from one political party to the other.”

The cleric stated this during a programme organised by the Good Shepherd Major Seminary in Kaduna, where he presented a paper entitled “Preaching and conscience formation of society in Islam”,

At the event, which had many Catholic priests in attendance, a member of the audience had asked Gumi, if Islamic clerics have influence over Muslims who are politicians.

In his response he said, “Most politicians lack ideology and that is why they jump from one political party to another and there is no difference between them and the prostitutes.”

Earlier while presenting his paper, Gumi had called on Nigerians to be firm in their moral and religious beliefs at a time insecurity in the country is on the rise.

He said, “Islam coming almost 600 years after Christianity. As another system of values, logically has a stand about the other established religions before it.

“First and foremost, it recognizes the unity in the foundation of the Abrahamic theological faith of monotheism. It recognizes the prophets and their revelations, and therefore encourages dialogue and discussions by way of persuasions not arguments.

“With vices on the rise, vices of every nature known and unknown, kidnappings, rape, ritual murders etc, genuine men of truth should stand out as the moral voice of Sajitu in defiance to injustice, prejudice, bigotry, hunger and share evil.

“The non Muslims should see Islam as another system of values, the modern world cannot survive from the scourged of societal ills without its recognition and acceptance as another solution to salvage mankind.”

Gumi may have stated the obvious about many Nigerian politicians as several of them had at different times defected from one political party to another.

It has always been a common thing to see Nigeria politicians joining a political party that may serve their interest at a given point in time.
