Christians should not head Nigeria’s security agencies- Gumi



Sheikh Ahmad Gumi

Kaduna-based Islamic scholar Ahmad Gumi has stated that Christians cannot be trusted with the security architecture of the country.

This was revealed by the controversial cleric in a 14-minute video sermon uploaded on his official Facebook page.

Gumi claimed in his sermon that the first coup in Nigeria was carried out by top Christian army officers.

He stated that entrusting Nigeria’s national security to Christians and Southerners is risky.

According to the cleric, Muslims nominated to key security positions are simply figureheads and are not in authority over military command and control like the Christians.

In the sermon, which was delivered in Hausa, the cleric said, “It is a decoy. Muslims are the heads of the Ministry of Defence; what significance is it? The real people in charge of command and control—those holding the guns and shooting—are we the ones?

“We are not the ones; they are playing us. There is an agenda. All means of money and economic power have been hijacked by them; they are planning to deceive us for four years and get eight years. They will not, InshaAllah.

“I want to tell you, there is no way Northerners doing their legitimate business will get one billion naira. Our rich people cannot get anything except those they trust. They only trust them because they are doing what they want. Anyone whose loyalty they are not sure of will crush him in a few months.

“They will only come during elections, like it is done to spread grains to chickens. If they spread grains to chickens, that’s all. Giving spaghetti to people is the solution; this spaghetti issue is a big deal. We are being cheated in this country and are in a real mess.

“There’s one Reverend or Bishop during Buhari’s tenure who was saying to me that Muslims have hijacked power. I told him, ‘Yes, and I am okay,’ because I knew the Chief of Army Staff would not attempt to attack me. Even if he does not protect me, he will not collaborate with some people to attack me. Our own people, either in the military, police, or the Department of State Services (DSS), will not be used to harm me; they will also not harm you, who is talking as a Christian.

“Why am I walking with the police? You didn’t see me with the police during Buhari’s government, despite my disagreement with them. It was because of this threat that we applied for police protection, which they gave us. Even if the president doesn’t like me, he has to give me police protection, or else he will be held responsible for my life.

“I am telling you people to be wise and don’t be fools because of God. These Muslim politicians just want dollars to go on holidays, go for medical treatments, and have forgotten the people.

“They are targeting us, and that was what I was telling that pastor or bishop: if we Muslims are in power with Muslims as heads of security agencies, we will not kill you, but if we give you Christians power with your infidels as heads of security agencies, they will plan to kill me, and I have examples.”
