2023: Tinubu, Atiku Have Experience To Govern Nigeria, Says Gumi

Published

An established patriot rather than a newbie should lead Nigeria, according to Sheikh Ahmad Gumi, a Kaduna-based Islamic cleric.He believes that the presidential candidates for the main opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu and Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, respectively, have the essential political and administrative experience to lead the country.Gumi compared the three front-runners for president in 2023, Tinubu of the APC, Atiku of the PDP, and Mr. Peter Obi of the Labour Party, when speaking to reporters about the upcoming general elections and the state of the nation yesterday at his Kaduna home (LP).Speaking on Asiwaju Tinubu, the Islamic cleric described the former Lagos State governor as a good administrator who will make a great President.But the cleric said the APC Muslim-Muslim ticket is a political gimmick to get votes.“Let me use Hausa language. It is wayo (strategy) and not a not a religious move. Whether it will work or not, I don’t want to prophesise.

“But there are a lot of hurdles. In fact, all the political parties have hurdles. The Muslim-Muslim ticket is going to be a laboratory test for others to emulate or not.”Commenting on Atiku, Sheikh Gumi said there was nothing wrong for politicians to contest elections several times until they achieve victory.“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,” he said.The Islamic cleric also spoke on Peter Obi, saying: “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.”He advised Nigerians to do away with ethno-religious politics and unite for the progress of the country.
