Popular Islamic cleric, Sheikh Ahmad Gumi says fears over possible Islamisation of Nigeria were unfounded.

He stated this while commenting on the controversy surrounding Minister of Communications and Digital Economy, Dr. Isa Ali Pantami.

Sheikh Gumi condemned those calling for the minister’s removal, saying that the allegations against Pantami were unfounded.

He warned that Nigeria would regret it should the enemies of Pantami succeed in their plot to cause his removal.

“You cannot Islamise the whole world. Jesus Christ came; he could not Christianise the whole world. Nobody can Islamise or Christianise Nigeria,” Gumi said.

“All his 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. Discard the fake news. The man is stabilising 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 sympathiser.

“And you people are fighting them. No. You should get more people like Pantami and put them in power. It will stabilise. Don’t remove him. You’ll regret,” Sheikh Gumi told Roots TV on Monday.
