If you remove Pantami, Nigeria will regret- Says Gumi
By Salisu Ahmad
Nigerians will regret any attempt to remove the Minister for Communications and Digital Technology, Isa Ali Pantami.
The Minister has been under pressure from Nigerians to resign based on his earlier expression of support for terrorism.
The Minister had denounced his own position at the time saying it was borne out of youth exuberance.
In an interview with RootsTV monitored by Irohinoodua Sheikh Ahmad Gumi, an Islamic scholar said Nigerians will regret any attempt to remove the Minister
Gumi said “All his actions, one hundred percent, shows he is not a terrorist. Those who are terrorists are after his life. The minister should continue. His presence there is fighting the terrorist ideology.
“Show me one person he has killed. He has not killed anybody. He has not ordered the killing of anybody. Discard the fake news. The man is stabilising a government among a section of youths, which we want them to come and join in nation-building. They should not throw him away. Leave him. He is not a terrorist sympathiser.
“And you people are fighting them. No. You should get more people like Pantami and put them in power. It will stabilise. Don’t remove him. You’ll regret.”
Gumi said “You cannot Islamise the whole world. Jesus Christ came; he could not Christianise the whole world. Nobody can Islamise or Christianise Nigeria.”
