Popular controversial Islamic cleric, Sheikh Abubakar Ahmad Gumi, has criticized Nigeria’s political system, claiming that there is socio-economic injustice in the country.
Gumi revealed this while speaking at a conference on peacebuilding that was held in Maiduguri, as part of programs to rehabilitate ex-Boko Haram militants into society.
He asserts that the country’s judicial system is ineffective and that the foundation of authority has been undermined.
Sheikh Gumi said, “Whoever has any interest in our country, we have made available for him soldiers he can conscript.
“So why do we leave our children uneducated? Why is education not for everybody? Why do we leave our population poor?
“Some Nigerians are riding private jets while some Nigerians don’t know where to put their children in school. There is social injustice. If you go to the court system, justice is not there. The fabric of power is broken down. So, the children are there to be used by anybody,” he concluded.
