While speaking about the nation's education system, Sheikh Gumi referred to Bells University in Ota, Ogun State. It should be recalled that the previous administration (government) sponsored forty-eight students to study abroad. Meanwhile, the 48 students graduated who in 2019 had since returned to Nigeria but their certificates are being withheld due to the failure of the current government to pay their tuition fee of N200 million.
"For two years these students are languishing in Kano. They came to me asking to help them get somebody that can help them speak to the University. Is it not a shame? One man in Kano state can pay that money, but will they pay? No."
Meanwhile, Sheikh Gumi has advised the Ogun State Government to look into the issue and resolve it. He suggested that the government can pay the money installmentally, adding that they sent them to study abroad, hence they should pay their tuition fee.

Sheikh Gumi has been an advocate of peace in Nigeria. He became even more popular when he advised the federal government to negotiate with bandits in a bid to end insecurity in the country.
