Controversial Islamic cleric, Sheikh Ahmad Gumi, said the Muslim-Muslim ticket is deceit, stating that Nigeria needs an experienced leader that can unite the people.

The cleric said Nigerians should do away with ethnoreligious politics in this 21st century, and come together as one united people for the progress of the country.

Gumi stated this on Monday, while speaking with journalists in Kaduna, he said the next President of the country should be one with experience, adding that there was nothing wrong with politicians contesting elections several times and seeking victory.

Speaking about the three most talked presidential candidates for the 2023 general elections, On Atiku Abubakar, he said “Nigeria needs an experienced politician. We don’t need a novice to be President. The situation in Nigeria today needs an experienced politician to solve it.

On Tinubu, who said it is his turn to be President, Sheikh Gumi said,  “it is not proper for him to say it is his turn. There is no question to saying it is my turn. Don’t say it is my turn because if people like you they will vote for you. He is a good administrator, he can do it. The Muslim-Muslim ticket is unnecessary.

“We all know, all these politicians are looking for votes. The Muslim-Muslim ticket is, let me use Hausa language, is wayo (deceit). It is not religion. Whether it will work or not, I don’t want to prophesize, but there are a lot of hurdles. In fact, all political parties have hurdles. Muslim-Muslim ticket is going to be a laboratory test for others to emulate or not.”

On Peter Obi, he said  “youths following him are divided like the adults. He needs to reach out to other segments of Nigerians. Relying on youths is not enough. He has to be all over the place, and not leaving politics to one region”.

Sheikh Gumi said, Nigeria is now in the 21st century, people are more educated now. What Nigeria needs now are people with competency. We should not be talking about the North because the North is no longer monolithic, we should not be talking about the Southwest because no particular person is in control, and we should not be talking about South East, look at how  Senator Ifeanyi Uba was attacked by his own people.

“So let’s talk about Nigeria as one united people. Nobody controls anybody in the country. So let’s move forward. Look at America, nobody is talking about power rotation.  Let’s develop a democracy that we can sustain.”
