Femi Fani-Kayode, former Minister of Aviation has raised concerns about the actions of renowned Islamic Scholar, Ahmad Gumi, accusing him of attempting to fuel religious and ethnic tensions in Nigeria.
Fani-Kayode has emphasized the need to restrain Gumi from engaging in activities that could potentially lead to the destabilization of the nation.
Infoexpert24 recalls that the cleric had said Nigeria can’t afford to entrust the responsibility of securing the country to Christians.
He made the remark in a sermon where he noted that President Bola Tinubu couldn’t remain in power for a second tenure if he failed to meet specific demands.
His comment came after the Minister of the Federal Capital Territory, FCT, Nyesom Wike, met with an Israeli envoy in Abuja.
During the visit, Wike discussed the issue of security in Abuja.
Aggrieved by the meeting, Gumi called for Wike’s removal, stressing that he planned to transform Abuja into Tel Aviv.
Reacting, Fani-Kayode called on the Federal Government to caution Gumi over his remarks.
The All Progressives Congress, APC, chieftain made the call in a two-and-a-half-page article released on Sunday.
The article reads partly: “Whichever way you view him, one thing is clear: Gumi is trying to ignite a religious and ethnic war in Nigeria and someone needs to call him to order before it is too late.”
