Pertaining to the forthcoming general elections and the state of the nation, the Islamic scholar said social injustice and poverty were responsible for insecurity in the country, adding that almost every household feels pains of socio-economic hardship in the country.

He however, advised that Nigerians should do away with ethno-religious politics in this 21st century, and come together as one united people for the progress of the country.

Speaking on the PDP presidential candidate, Alhaji Abubakar Atiku, who had contested for the presidency several times, Gumi said;

there was nothing wrong for politicians to contest election several times seeking for 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”.

Commenting on the APC candidate, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu who said it is his turn to be President, Gumi said;

there is no need to say 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 that all these politicians are looking for votes.

The Muslim-Muslim ticket is (wayo) a ploy, 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 the political parties have hurdles.

Muslim-Muslim ticket is going to be a laboratory test for others to emulate or not”.

He went further to say;

The Islamic cleric’s take the LP candidate, Peter Obi is that, “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 warned that if an inexperienced politician is voted into power, he will find it difficult to assemble the best brains within a short time framework to set the nation working progressively.
