Renowned Islamic Scholar, Sheikh Ahmad Gumi, has said that Nigerians will regret it if the Minister of Communications and Digital Economy, Isa Pantami, is removed from office.
In Gumi’s recent meeting with, former President Olusegun Obasanjo, he recommended special courts to give bandits and kidnappers a chance and also the necessity to have people like Pantami in the government.
He made this known on Monday in an interview with Roots TV.
He said, “All his (Pantami’s) actions, one hundred percent, shows he is not a terrorist. Those who are terrorists are after his life. The minister should continue. His presence there is fighting the terrorist ideology.
“Show me, one person, he has killed. He has not killed anybody. He has not ordered the killing of anybody. The man is stabilizing a government among a section of youths, which we want them to come and join in nation-building. They should not throw him away. Leave him. He is not a terrorist sympathizer. “And you people are fighting them. No. You should get more people like Pantami and put them in power. It will stabilize. Don’t remove him. You’ll regret.”
