    Insecurity: Buhari rewarding failure with ambassadorial appointments – Gumi

    Published By:

    Controversial Islamic Cleric, Sheikh Ahmad Gumi, has reacted to terrorist attacks on the Guards Brigade in Abuja. has condemned the Federal Government’s threat to sanction some media organisations over their reports on terrorism across the country.

    He said insecurity should be expected because President Muhammadu Buhari rewards failure with an Ambassadorial appointment.

    While reacting to the Federal Government’s plan to sanction the BBC Africa Eye and Daily Trust over their recent reports on the issue of politics of insecurity.

    Wakadaily earlier reported that, The Minister of information and culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammad, disclosed in an interview in Abuja on Thursday, that the Federal Government (FG) is aware of the unprofessional documentary by the BBC, Africa Eye, further threatened to sanction both media.

    A statement by Gumi blamed illiteracy for the insecurity in the North.

    What do you expect from a society (Fulani) that was left in total ignorance and lack of education, especially when their primary means of livelihood (cattle) has been completely rustled by other criminal elements within and outside our security agencies without any effort by the government to address the injustice.

    “As I talk to you now, cattle rustling has not stopped. Many law-abiding Fulanis have fallen victims to the official extortion of their cows. I have well-documented evidence involving some security agents in which I personally intervened. How do you expect as a government to address insecurity, especially related to Fulani bandits without addressing such instances of extortion and rustling?

    He pointed out that “When a Commander-in-Chief rewards failure with ambassadorial appointments in a system and a society that records increased attacks, when security agencies cannot even protect Abuja and especially when the Guards Brigade cannot even protect themselves not to talk of the President, then why to blame the media for such failure and ineptitude for reporting it?” the cleric queried.
