Former Minister of Aviation, Chief Femi Fani-Kayode, has issued a warning to Islamic cleric Sheikh Ahmad Gumi, cautioning him against inciting religious and ethnic conflicts in Nigeria. Fani-Kayode, holding the titles of Sadaukin Shinkaffi and Wakilin Doka Potiskum, has also called upon the Federal Government to intervene and address Gumi’s comments, which he considers provocative and incendiary.
In a lengthy article spanning two and a half pages published in Sunday Vanguard, Fani-Kayode commended Northern elders for disassociating themselves from Gumi due to his perceived threats. He emphasized that Gumi appears to be attempting to ignite a religious and ethnic war in Nigeria and asserted the need for intervention to restrain him before it escalates further.
Furthermore, Fani-Kayode praised groups like the Pan Niger Delta Forum (PANDEF) for taking a stand against Gumi’s statements. These sentiments followed Gumi’s controversial sermon in Kaduna, where he was reported to have made divisive statements suggesting that Southerners and Christians couldn’t be trusted with national security.
Gumi also made claims regarding President Bola Tinubu’s potential political fate and accused the President of conspiring to transform Abuja into a place similar to Tel Aviv, where Muslims would face targeted violence, based on the reception of the Israeli Ambassador by the Minister of the Federal Capital Territory, Mr. Nyesom Wike.
