Sheikh Ahmad Gumi, a divisive Islamic cleric, has criticized Nigeria’s political establishment and claimed that social injustice exists in the country.
Speaking during a conference on peacebuilding held in Maiduguri as part of efforts to rehabilitate ex-Boko Haram militants into society, Gumi revealed this.
He asserts that the country’s legal system is ineffective and that the foundation of authority is weak.
“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,” Gumi said.
