Ahmad Gumi stated that Nigerians will regret it if Isa Pantami is removed from office.
It’s important to know that Nigerians had continually mounted pressure on the president to sack the minister while some called for his resignation following the re-emergence of his public declaration of support for terrorist groups in the past.
But Gumi, a Kaduna-based Islamic preacher who had consistently called for negotiations with bandits stated that Pantami was not sympathetic towards terrorists.
Gumi, who was speaking in an interview with “Roots TV” said that the embattled minister was rather a nation-builder who was working to attract other youths to support the government.
Gumi also said Pantami was a victim of wicked campaigns to remove him from office.
