I’ve received threats for criticising Buhari — Sheik Gumi

A prominent Nigerian Islamic cleric, Ahmad Gumi, said Tuesday he has been threatened for not supporting Muhammadu Buhari, the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, APC.

The Kaduna-based cleric raised the alarm on Tuesday in a Facebook post titled, “PDP v APC: It’s Not about Religion.”

He said his children have also been receiving calls from persons who use unknown telephone numbers to threaten them.

“People like me who had all along been critical about the government can longer speak or express personal opinion if it is not in support of Gen. Buhari,” said Shiekh Gumi.

“Just this morning around 2.30a.m., my three male children individually got threatening phone calls from a private number. People can vote for whoever they choose whether a Christian or a Muslim”

The cleric had in a separate Facebook post in October called on Mr. Buhari not to contest the 2015 presidential election for fear of crisis.

At the same time, he also advised President Goodluck Jonathan not to stand in next year’s presidential election.
Mr. Jonathan has emerged the PDP candidate while Mr. Buhari is the APC candidate.

Mr. Gumi has also recently criticized the choice of a lawyer and pastor of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, RCCG, Yemi Osinbajo, as Mr. Buhari’s running mate, saying, “It’s now the Church not just Christians that have their feet engrossed in the APC.”

Reacting to Sheikh Gumi’s alarm, a Zaria-based cleric, Ahmed Ali, advised the preacher to stay off politics so that he will not derail from what he has been known for.

“Politics is for politicians while religious teachings are in the hands of clerics. Gumi should have remained on that and not start joining issues with politicians,” Mr. Ali said. “You can see that he is being labeled as an enemy by supporters of the candidates he claimed to have given advice.”

Instead of venturing into the murky political terrain, Mr. Ali advised Mr. Gumi to continue preaching to the youth to avoid any form of violence.

He advised Mr. Gumi to offer any advice he has personally to those concerned.

“You can see even if the cleric has a good intention on what he is doing, it is becoming a worrisome issue for him and even his family because he did not do it with wisdom,” Mr. Ali said.

He called on religious leaders to use their positions to preach to people to eschew violence and to also advise politicians to play politics with decorum.

Below is Mr. Gumi’s full message

PDP v APC: it’s not about religion.

Surely there is religion in politics and politics in religion. However the 2015 PDP v APC is not about religion. It’s a time bomb and God is not the author of mischief.

Security members have clamped down on APC members and took away their computers, while some irrational youth are threatening the lives of PDP members with their families in the North. PDP posters are vandalized in some places.

People like me who had been all along critical about the government dear (dare) speak or express my own personal opinion if it’s not in support of Gen. Buhari. One must be bribed or a PDP agent. Just this early morning around 2.30am my three male children individually got threatening phone calls from a private number who are Hausa speakers.

Already a ‘cult’ is formed.

All these are harbingers of what is coming up when anyone of the contestants is declared loser. With intimidation from both sides, it shows that a truly one hundred percent free and fair election will be an illusion.
Yet it’s the only one eye we have so we have to do with the cake half-baked.

What is now paramount and of highest priority is peace and stability. Every life must be protected; minorities – Muslims and Christians – should be secured also, without putting an extra burden on the already exhausted military and police.

It’s good that both presidential candidates of the PDP and APC have re-emphasized that the 2015 presidential contest is not a religious one. The two parties have also reiterated the same. Therefore, the 2015 elections is not a Crusade v Jihad and consequently there is no martyrdom. The only ethical obligation on the clergy of both religions, Christians and Muslims, is to explain it to their congregations to avoid violence.

Nigeria doesn’t need another religiously tainted war. The Boko Haram has already tormented all.

APC was ‘demonized’ by elements in PDP as a “Janjaweed” party to the extent that they were pushed to take a pastor instead of a nominal Christian as their vice presidential candidate. This in turn has nationally brought another dangerous innovation and dimension into the dirty game of power struggle.

Now men of religion will surely be messed up and ‘dirtied’. Next as Muslims become sensitized too, a Sheikh will soon be on the list and a u-turn to another religious conflict – inter-faith and extra faith will ensue. Thanks to the recklessness of both parties that have proven no matter what they claim; are still self -centered and egocentric.

The choice of a pastor to deputize for Gen. Buhari is meant to shake to the core the Christians who were made to see the candidate as a religious fanatic and also the Muslims alike who saw the General as having some Islamic aura. It should then effectively neutralized the ‘demonization’ of PDP as a Christian party. It’s now the Church not just Christians that have a foot engrossed in APC. A privilege the Mosque cannot be said to enjoy in any of the two parties.

Therefore both parties are a group of Nigerian Muslims and Christian’s joined together for a common. Each with its winning slogan and strategy. Each can only promote his/her religion on personal basis but the union is purely secular and worldly. The essence of our democratic union.

So no Muslim or Christian should be demonized for joining any of the parties. Muslims and Christians should all freely choose which party they like without any compromise on their religious obligations. It’s a matter of mundane desires and preferences. No party is holy or is making brief for the Almighty God.

Therefore, you as a voter, take all precautionary steps, legal and practical, to vote and protect your rights. But never violence.

As for Islam for which I speak for, since there are Muslims on both sides, any Muslim who will kill or die fighting another Muslim will be condemned to Hell for eternity. Likewise, whoever that will also kill another non-Muslim Nigerian because of the constitutional treaty of peaceful coexistence between Nigerians will not smell the fragrance of Paradise.

In a Hadith narrated by both Al-Bukhari and Muslim, the Noble Prophet said: “when two Muslims fight each other with their swords, the killer and the killed are in Hell”

In another Hadith, the Noble Prophet said: “whosoever will kill any soul of non-Muslim under peace treaty will never smell the fragrance of Paradise which can be found from a distance of forty years,” narrated by Al-Bukhari.
Islam abhors mutiny and treason which are culpable felonies, deception, and breach of trust, rigging, lying, material and spiritual corruption. And one may not need to ask which Nigerian or party is not a culprit to any of these divine offences? Therefore the word is let us take it easy and live in peace.

This democracy has been unconstitutionally raped repeatedly by the military might and polls rigging, yet your civility, patience and prayers had always been our only remedy and the strength of our unity.

Therefore don’t kill or expose yourself to political violence for naught. This world is going to end. And the day you die, you will only be judged by Divine ruling not by the Nigerian Supreme Court decisions.

Whoever calls you out to violence ask him to show up himself and his children first. This way we can altogether avoid post-election violence, chaos and anarchy.

Let us remind ourselves, we saw that when Boko Haram takes over a village both Muslims and Christians run helter-skelter for their lives to Federal government controlled areas. Meaning there can be a situation worse than what you are in now. Therefore, thank God and never allow yourself to be used in violence in anticipation of a better life, while you will end up lamenting over our previous situation as bad as it may appear.

“The near event draws nigh. * There shall be none besides Allah to remove it.”

May God bring peace, security and stability to our country? Amin.

  • Preco01

    Sheik Gunmi since you like giving people unsolicited advise, here is one for you- Restrict your unsolicited advise to your followers okay? Leave politicians to play politics and we the already serially short-changed electorate make the decisions, after all you only have one vote just like every Nigerian, you may chose to cast it or not, your choice.

    • PROF

      Haha Gumi will soon convert to christianity . Its only our lord that can save him from buharis urchins .

  • Nwa Aba {Biafran}

    Sheikh you are in a wrong religion i have never seen an Islamic cleric like you

  • Sammy Charles

    Buhari is not a democrat. In life you don’t value what you have until you lose it. Voting for buhari is a vote for the terrorist

  • Sammy Charles

    Gumi, you advised Jonathan, did anybody threaten you?. A vote for buhari is a vote for the terrorist

    • Kay Soyemi (Esq.)

      Ask el-Zakzaky the same question, please.

  • Sammy Charles

    Buhari is blood thirsty

  • Sammy Charles

    Buhari is a blood thirst tyrant. Decree 20 of 1984 was promulgated and backdated. Remember decree 20?

  • Mariana

    …There is nobody Bokohari and his agents don’t threaten. Small time dem go begin threaten themselves.

    “…Reacting to Sheikh Gumi’s alarm, a Zaria-based cleric, Ahmed Ali, advised the preacher to stay off politics so that he will not derail from what he has been known for…”

    Bcos Gunmi has begun to criticize Buhari, it is now he has to ‘stay off politics’. Haba Mallam Ahmed Ali! Na so your sense be?

  • Maria

    Gumi now the bride of deluded Jonathief followers.

    • Mariana

      @ “Shock absolvers”

      Just keep kwiet for there.

    • Otile

      Maria, did you read his advice well? He rightly asked Imam to keep his nose out to the presidential race. As a fellow Northerner and Muslim imam who understands Buhari better than Sheik Gumi?

      If you read the article you would see that he doesn’t like President Jonathan either. Understand that his dislike for Great Jona is because Jona is a Christian man plus a non Northerner. Put 2 and 2 together, Maria.

    • emmanuel

      Gumi has never supported Jonathan.

      The problem with you lame ducks is that you quarantine all Nigerians to your shallow brains and assume everyone must exhist in your thinking and fancy. We all must think Buhari?

      That is not true. There are people who know what efforts Jonathan has put into this nation, how he has pushed the wicked Obj from his side, how he has battled BH and has narrowed them to the three states.

      Buhari is not an option!

      • Maria

        Jonathan is the only lame duck in Nigeria right now… that mumu you call president.

  • Etomi

    You won’t find APC militants responding to this kind of story…
    Only an unfeeling God would allow us have a Buhari as president…

    • Sammy Charles

      A vote for buhari is a vote for the terrorist

      • Preco01

        A vote for Jona is: Promise! promise!! promise!! from Jonathan , he delivered CLULESSNESS, CALLOUSNESS and CORRUPTION (3C’s) here this: Jonathan in 2011 said, “if voted into power within the next four years, the issue of power will become a thing of the past. Four years is enough for anyone in power to make significant improvement and if I can’t improve on power within this period it then means I cannot do anything even if I am there for another four years.” Sadly, it is true his administration cannot do anything about the suffocating power situation in the country.HE SHOULD THEREFORE HEED HIS OWN ADVICE AND GO! GO!! GO!!!

        • emmanuel

          Four years of calling security chiefs averyday because detractors have bombed some where.

          You want development, but do not want the man to have peace?

  • Mariana

    …There is nobody Bokohari and his agents don’t threaten. Small time dem go begin threaten themselves.

    “…Reacting to Sheikh Gumi’s alarm, a Zaria-based cleric, Ahmed Ali, advised the preacher to stay off politics so that he will not derail from what he has been known for…”

    Bcos Gunmi has begun to criticize Buhari, it is now he has to ‘stay off politics’. Haba Mallam Ahmed Ali! Na so your sense be?

  • Sammy Charles

    Gumi sorry, are the boko haram terrorist threatening you

  • adnoy

    Gumi we are satisfied with GMB, but for Jonothing we’re tired of its empty and unfufiled promises plus his clueless governance.

  • karo

    You Spoke well

  • TRUTH MASTER

    Gumi should tell that to the Marines. You cannot run with the hare and hunt with the hound!

  • Oleku

    Gumi that’s the janjaweeds for you–you dare not say anything on the negatives about Imam Buhari–else the e-janjaweedians ati Wähala ati Tundemash ati endingNaija ati Maria will come for your jugular like a butcher right there–they are that desperate

  • muwaffiq

    Ameen Ya Sheikh

  • Dangara

    The fact that Buhari sanctioned your father does not give you the license to always insult him. If there is anybody fit for insults, it ought to be Abubakar Gummi Snr for having the indiscretion to be indisciplined during Buhari’s tenure. In fact, Buhari should be your hero for showing that nobody is above the law.

  • Tonnero

    Gumi, we can see the subtext of your exhortations. I believe you have been co-opted by GEJ. What you are essentially saying is that Northern youths should not protest even if there is rigging. You are also saying that Northern Muslims should vote PDP because there is now no Muslim or Christian party. It is your Jonathan that turned this thing to ethnicity and religion. You have never heard APC call PDP Christian party. Unfortunately, PDP nailed itself with Muslims by acting as if the very act of being Muslim is a bad thing. About the threats, I agree they should desist. However, these threats are not different from those issued by Alhaji Asari Dokubo and EK Clark.

    • New Nigerian

      ..The mother of all threats is the raging Boko Haram war as we all read this….that is the mother of all rigging and it is at play…what is the Shaykh saying about that, why is he not telling Jonathan to stop the madness or is he waiting until Boko Haram, with a wink-wink from PDP makes a narrow miss on him too?

  • Unbiased

    The best I have heard from this Man and am beginning to like him… I respect Men of integrity that speaks the truth without caring whose ego the bruise. So impartial and honest… I wish most of the commentator will open their eye and reason like this Man….

    Both parties are Evil and corrupt. Both Godluck and Buhari surrounds themeself with very corrupt politicians who does not have the interest of the common man at heart except their pockets.

  • Frank Bassey

    If a man of Sheik Gumi’s status can be threatened for making a remark, you can imagine what will happen when Buhari loses the presidential election. He will, as usual, make inflammatory statements that will send his satanic supporters to go into killing and maiming because that is what his party knows how best to do.

    • New Nigerian

      so what would happen when Jonathan looses the election?

      • Kay Soyemi (Esq.)

        lol, New Nigerian.

        I guess Tompolo, his warships and Asari would be let loose on the rest of us if Jonothing does not win the election.

    • emmanuel

      If Buhari looses the election, Gumi will be a goner, inspite of the fact that he is not a Jonathan supporter.

  • Hisham Habib

    Niger Delta goons and militants must have promised him an oil well, if not what is his business with Buhari if he wants to play politics drop preaching and join PDP !

  • Ndu

    This man’s experience should remind everyone of Buhari in the height of his power in 1984, with Decree Number 4 in hand. If you published any fact that “embarrassed” Buhari you got thrown into jail. Does the leopard change its spots?

    • New Nigerian

      With Jonathan you get blown up by Boko Haram if you dare criticize him…chose one, jail or grave…

    • emmanuel

      I have never seen a man like Jonathan on earth. Everybody denegraye his office and no one goes after them. People insult him to his face and he just ignore them.

      A fulani man does not and will not take it. Check history.

      The DSS, Military Police or some hit men will neutralise you.

      Lets be mindful of what we wish for in this country.

  • New Nigerian

    PDP is trying to recruit the Shaykh to counter the gains APC made by recruiting Pastor Osinbajo as the VP….too little too late..

    Shaykh you had told Buhari not to contest & you also told Jonathan not to contest…they both are contesting….now you are saying no post-election violence, which is good…but why wait until election , how about you speak with the utmost urgency against pre-election violence through Boko Haram which is an extreme rigging tool of PDP?

    • Jezzy

      SHALLOW REASONING AND ASSUMPTION THAT MISLEAD PEOPLE TO RESORT TO VIOLENCE WHEN THEY LOOSE ELECTION. THAT BUHARI IS SEEKING CREDIBILITY BY USING A PASTOR AS A RUNNING MATE IS NOT IN ANY WAY A GAIN. IN FACT, IT IS A MINUS BECAUSE BY DOING THIS, HE HAS ADMITTED THAT HE IS NOT WIDELY ACCEPTABLE AND MARKETABLE AS AN ISLAMIC FUNDAMENTALIST. IF AT ALL TIMES, HE NEEDS A PASTOR TO WIN ELECTION THEN HE HAS BECOME A VICTIM OF THE RELIGIOUS POLITICS HE STARTED YEARS BACK BY ASKING MUSLIMS TO VOTE FOR MUSLIMS AND VICE VERSA. UNFORTUNATELY, REBRANDING HIMSELF NOW WITH A PASTOR RUNNING MATE WILL NOT HELP HIM, JUST AS IT DID NOT MAKE ANY DIFFERENCE WHEN HE USED A MORE PROMINENT PASTOR (PASTOR BAKARE) IN 2011.

  • Otile

    If Sheik Gumi was not a Muslim, Islamic APC hirelings would now be heaping insults on him. They would be calling him, clown, imbecile, moron, moron prince, mugu, mumu, retard, plus other derogatory words used by awon babalowo.

    • Kay Soyemi (Esq.)

      At least you are not calling him names for being a “Northerner” this time.

      A slight improvement, Otile, if I must state.

      • Otile

        I am not a tribalist like some people. I know that President Shagari is a good man but Jack Gowon a murderer. I know that Ogagun is a good man, but Ebola Tinubu a thief. I know that Oshiomhole is a good man, but my brother Rauf Azubuike a corrupt man. I know that our cousin President Jonathan is a good man, but Imam Buhari an Islamic bigot. I also know that VP Atiku is a good man but Alhaji Tambu a wacko.

        I am an open-minded Christian man. Ones place of origin does not matter to me unless the person shows he is a tribalist like late Ben Adekunle. E gbo mi nko?

        • Kay Soyemi (Esq.)

          Otile, there are some truths I agree with in your write up.

          Similarly, there are screaming errors that I would normally disagree with,, vehemently.

          But this is Xmas eve and not one for venting spleen.

          Have a good one, bruv.

          It has been nice tangling with you mofos much of the time.

          A Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you.

          • Otile

            You have a merry Christmas and Happy New Year, buddy. You and I don’t have any reason to trade insults here because corrupt politicians on both sides. Believe it or not what the Republic needs is Rawlings treatment.

          • Kay Soyemi (Esq.)

            Lol, Otile.

            On this Christmas Day, you and I fully agree on one score!

            Have a blessed one too.

    • JEZZY

      LOGICAL REASONING SHOULD HELP KNOW WHO TO HOLD RESPONSIBLE FOR INSECURITY IN NIGERIA. WHY ARE PEOPLE BEING THREATENED FOR EXERCISING THEIR FREEDOM OF EXPRESSION ON POLITICAL ISSUES. IF WE ARE NOT SHYING AWAY FROM THE TRUTH, WHY SHOULD SUPPORTERS OF CERTAIN POLITICAL PARTY OR CANDIDATE RESORT TO INTIMIDATING PEOPLE NOT TO VOTE CANDIDATE OF THEIR CHOICE. WHY MUST SOME POLITICIANS MAKE US BELIEVE THAT WE MUST VOTE FOR THEM OR FACE VIOLENCE, AND NO ONE SEES WHAT IS WRONG WITH THIS NEW MERCENARY APPROACH IN POLITICS. WITH THIS APPROACH, WHY SHOULD PEOPLE NOT ASSOCIATE THIS PARTY AND CANDIDATE(S) THREATENING US WITH AS THE MASTERMINDS OF THE EXISTING VIOLENCE AND INSURGENCY IN THE COUNTRY. I WISH THESE BLOOD THIRSTY POLITICIANS AND THEIR SUPPORTERS SHOULD REALIZE THAT THEY WORSENING THINGS FOR THEMSELVES BY PRESENTING THEMSELVES TO BE VIOLENT.

      • Kay Soyemi (Esq.)

        Spot on, Jezzy.

        Please tell them to stop burning other party’s flags like the thugs they are. Please also remind them to stop going into the courtrooms to slap judges. Please don’t also forget to remind them that if they are relying on ghosts to deliver more votes than there are registered voters, it would not work because God has forsaken them.

        And, while we are at it, you would do the country proud by asking them to canvass for votes based on their records of service.

        Thank you.

    • emmanuel

      The situation we are facing was set up so that Buhari and his men can call for change. It is self induced in all forms.

      A few days ago, jonathan inaugurated Port Harcourt-Enugu Rail line. Lagos-Kano is working and others too, but IBB, Abacha and Obasanjo used the Railway to steal so much from Nigeria and killed it.

      I know people who now drive assembled in Nigeria Cars and Induatries for production of parts have been jump started.

      Why not tell your people to atop Boko Haram so that this man can give Nigeria the best.

      • M Ajonye

        Mr dumbo why can’t you you tell CinC with his military might to stop boko haram. Who enters train without being alive? Can a dead man drive Nigerian assembled car? Not everyone wants to be corrupt or steal before they can afford Nigeria assembled cars. I don’t want to have to generate my own power after over 15billion usd investmen. This why I demand for change.

        • Wise Head

          Any government the North gets through bloodshed from Boko Haram will meet with tragedy as the price of blood. The North should present issues and not try to use bloodshed to win power.

This way we can altogether avoid post-election violence, chaos and anarchy”.

  • Factual

    Mr.Cleric, what did you receive for criticizing JONAHARAM? Stomach infrastructure, I guess. It’s evidently clear now that you are taking things so personal with Buhari, perhaps because of his encounter with your father.

  • abc

    Useless man, when people are suffering and hong for change just to live their life free with no bomb, no slaughtering, no kidnapping no Boko haram. Here u are telling people to wait for four more years, just because you are paid some tokens. Did you know that people in Nigeria will rather vote for Obasanjo for another term than to vote for this dumb we call our president. Because Obasanjo can fought this terrorist head on. The president that believe the people of NE are killing them selves because they want to dis stabilise his govt. the man that was told by Obasanjo to rescue the chibok girls immediately but he holds to his believe that its a hoax not reality.

    • BenYah

      It is unacceptable to call anybody useless because of his opinion. Anybody with a little perception would know that Sheik Gumi has spoken as a patriot. For me I am absolutely sure I would not vote for Buhari. I am not too sure I would participate in the presiential election altogether. We need more patriotic voices.

      • abc

        A useless man is he who called him self a respected Islamic cleric but see nothing good in preaching to Boko Haram to embrace peace and stop the violence in name of Islam, but always attacking a particular politician. The man that want to see ordinary citizens abandon their hope for change for good governance and security of their lives and properties, and wait for 4 more years of suffering. But did nothing to persuade Boko haram foot soldiers to abandon Shekau and stop killing people.
        @ BenYah, I did not call him useless out of ignorance, I call him so because what he learned for years as Islamic preacher is of no use to his immediate society, but trying to be political analyst for which he is not known until now that he probably got paid. The usefulness of a soldier is fight for his country, the usefullness of a doctor is to treat patients, the usefullness of a lawyer is to win case and usefullness of cleric is to preach and make people understand the religion and practice it without transgression. But the man is not doing what is right as a cleric. What would you call a doctor that thinks he can be an attorney in court, no matter how learned he is in medicine, I believe he is useless in court room. Take your time reason well b4 counter allegations please. Mind you, I said USELESS and I did not abuse him. In simplest term he had no use being a cleric.

  • Jika

    Just preach the gospel of peace and,avoid dabbling into politics.I am sure you are not the only learned Muslim cleric.Certainly there are more learned Muslims than you are.They have all been admonishing their followers to eschew violence and tow the path to peace.Here you are Sheikh,always dabbling into an area where you lack core competence.What Nigeria needs from you is prayers and not partisan politics.Bissalam.
