In a video that is making the rounds on social media after a popular Islamic scholar, Sheikh Gumi said Nigeria cannot displace the Fulani people because times have changed and other statements in regard to insecurity, the case of Pantami and agitators activities. Adding that ethnic fanatism does not work anymore and not even religion can displace the Fulani people, the editor of Ovation magazine and an ace broadcaster, Dele Momodu has replied to this comment via his official and Verified Instagram page on Wednesday.
Dele, who has always been vocal about issues of public interest and importance in the country especially in regard to good governance, has expressed concern a few hours ago over the statement made by Dr Gumi. However, in his response to Gumi's statement on the displacement of the Fulani people in the country, Dele said that no one in Nigeria wants to displace the Fulani. Noting that the Fulani people will never succeed in displacing other Nigerians from their ancestral homes. He added that not even a million Nigerian soldiers would be able to do that.
Speaking further in regard to the case of the embattled Minister of Communications and Digital Economy, Isa Ali Pantami, who the Islamic scholar said more of him is needed in government, Dele responded by saying that the threats about the removal of Mr Pantami are nothing but “sheer humbug”. The Ovation boss added that they will not do anything more than send more terrorists to attack innocent people.
It could be recalled that the Minister, Pantami has been alleged to have been in support of terrorist groups. He was accused to have spread religious sentiments in support of the criminal jihadist who continues to cause mayhem in different parts of Nigeria, the West African sub-region and beyond.
As he raised his third point, Dele Momodu said that history made us to understand that no dictatorship lasts forever. He made a case for Hitler saying that all those who are responsible for the violence in Nigeria will one day pay heavily for their “bigotry and shortsightedness.”
