“We are not against Jonathan because he is not Muslim, Gowon, Shonekan and Obasanjo rules this country and they are not muslims, we are against Jonathan because of the bloodshed and killings that are happening now in his government” – Sheikh Dr. Ahmad Abubakar Mahmud Gumi now at Sultan Bello Mosque Kaduna.
This statement has just been pasted on the Facebook wall of celebrity Islamic preacher Shiekh Gumi. Some people in Northern Nigeria have blamed Goodluck Jonathan’s government for having a hand in Boko Haram activities. Some believe it is a deliberate plan to destroy the North, while others say Boko Haram only exist because government want to allocate huge funds to security so that it can be looted. NEWISSUES have not been able to clarify Shiekh Gumi to expantiate. Goodluck Jonathan has never enjoyed support in Northern Nigeria where a lot of people believe that he stole the chance of the North after Umar Musa Yar’adua died in the PDP zoning arrangement.
