Sheikh Gumi reveals what he discussed with Obi 


Kaduna-based Islamic scholar, Sheikh Ahmad Gumi, has told of what transpired between him and Peter Obi, when the Labour Party (LP) presidential candidate paid him a courtesy visit at his Kaduna residence. 

Obi had stopped by Gunmi’s residence on his way to the event organised by the Arewa Consultative Forum, Northern Elders Forum and other northern groups for presidential candidates.  

The Islamic scholar revealed their tete-a-tete to Daily Trust. 

Quoting him, the paper wrote,  “I asked him very essential questions, but I told him he didn’t have to give me straight answers right away since I knew he was on his way to Arewa House where he would explain it better to the larger society to understand. 

“I asked him about his stand on restructuring because Nigeria has been going through a restructuring from 1960 to date and how he could empower an unskilled nation.  

 “I also asked him how he could pacify agitations from the South East, North Central, South West, and North East.  Again, I told him there are foreign interests in this country that are part of the polarisation of our politics. So how is he going to tackle it? 

“He also agreed with me that truly there is foreign interest in this country, and then I wished him well.”
