“Don’t Remove Pantami, Nigerians Will Regret” – Gumi

Following the outcry from Nigerians that the Minister for Communication and Digital Economy, Dr Isa Pantami should resign over a comment he made supporting terrorists, Islamic Scholar, Sheikh Gumi, has stated that Nigerians would regret if the Minister is removed from office.

According to reports, the cleric spoke on Monday in an interview with Roots TV, making it known that, “All his (Pantami’s) actions, one hundred percent, shows he is not a terrorist. Those who are terrorists are after his life. The minister should continue. His presence there is fighting the terrorist ideology”.

Gumi added that, “Show me one person he has killed. He has not killed anybody. He has not ordered the killing of anybody. The man is stabilising a government among a section of youths, which we want them to come and join in nation-building. They should not throw him away. Leave him. He is not a terrorist sympathiser”.

The Cleric stated that, “And you people are fighting them. No. You should get more people like Pantami and put them in power. It will stabilise. Don’t remove him. You’ll regret .”

This is coming after the presidency said that Pantami should be forgiven for the comments, as he made the comment when he was much younger.
