Sheikh Ahmad Gumi, the popular Kaduna-based Islamic clergy, who is known for his attempts at arranging government amnesty for the bandits in the North-West has posted a new message on his official Facebook page. In the message, he raised a number of issues as he warned the federal government (FG) that if the outlaws were declared as terrorists, Nigeria would end.
He also illustrated with the Nnamdi Kanu and Sunday Igboho secessionist agitations in the South-East and South-West respectively. And he lamented that, albeit he attempted to make the bandits in the North-West to turn a new leaf, unfortunately, he had more antagonists than supporters.
Speaking further on how to arrest the insecurity situation that is threatening the unity and existence of Nigeria, he suggested that like him, a cleric of Igbo (South-East) descent should take it upon himself to consult with the IPOB members, and admonish them against their agitations which undermine the unity of the country. He proceeded to advise for the same thing to take place with the Sunday Igboho's secessionist group in the South-West (Yoruba).
In view of the above position of the Muslim Evangelist, it will be recalled that he is the second person who has come up with such idea. Thus is because the Prelate of the Methodist Church of NigerIa, His Eminence, Dr. Samuel Chukwuemeka Kanu-Uche, has earlier given the same advice to the FG.
About two weeks ago, Prelate Kanu-Uche, in addition to admonishing the President Buhari-led FG to consider granting amnesty to both Kanu and Igboho, said that the secessionist leaders should be consulted and sensitised on the need to keep Nigeria together as one entity. And to that effect, he volunteered himself, along with Chief Emmanuel Iwuanyanwu, to undertake the mission in the South-East.
Juxtaposing the foregoing ideas of the famous Islamic and Christian Evangelists, it will be discovered that they have said exactly the same thing in their efforts that are geared towards stabilising Nigeria amid currently nagging insecurity.
