2015: Anything Short Of A free And Fair Election’s A Declaration Of War – Sheik Gumi

gumi-1Prominent Islamic cleric, Sheik (Dr) Ahmad Abubakar Mahmud Gumi has described the ongoing National Conference as futile, null and void as it is not recognized by the constitution.

The outspoken cleric, in a statement titled “Anything short of a free and fair election in 2015 is a declaration of War”, posted on his Facebook page, also warned the Nigerian Armed Forces against staging a coup, saying it would be consumed in such attempt as the people would resist any forceful take-over of power.

The post read: “We are already witnessing an undeclared War against the constitution the binding force of our unity. The constitution is the treaty and covenant that binds together in the country called Nigeria the north and south, Muslims and Christians the Hausa/Fulani, Yoruba and the Igbos, the main contentious belligerent blocks to live in peace based on charters that cater for peaceful coexistence.

“In this treaty, any party that wants to secede, has to get the approval of 2/3 of Nigerians in the senate, fed house of reps and the states house of reps. Any short cut to this process is a breach of this treaty.

“Any forceful take-over of government is a breach of this treaty. If in the past people succumbed, today people will fight back. The armed forces itself will break up – we can see Syria as an example.

“The outcome of any national conference is futile and null and void since it’s unconstitutional.

“Therefore it remains only one option that is constitutional, if people want power; A free and fair Elections.

“If anybody or any group of Nigerians will use force or coercion or dubious manipulations and threats to stick to power or wrangle it, that is a clear breach of the constitution and a declaration of War against the peace loving people of this nation. There is no other option but to fight them until they are subdued. Biafra as precedence!” he wrote.

Sheik Gumi prayed for peace in Nigeria.


  1. Mr preacher: your speculation is very wrong,I am not sure if you are the person they called you. But there were cases of irregularities in Nigeria election in the past without violence,remember late president Musa Yar’Adua where presidential election and others was conducted and there were obvious election rigging in Nigeria and opposition parties accept defeat without violence. Why this? U know very well that no two things can be the same,we are all expecting improvement- therefore,why not base your speculation on this ground? No wonder:Boko Haram sect’s ideology is right here!! On this note, I am to inform you that: do not let your heart deceive you, whatsoever you sow that same shall you reap; if you sow violence you will reap violence,if you sow peace you will also reap peace,remember he who pelt oneself a pebble must expect a stone in return;if you want WAR I will personally give you war, if you want peace I will give you peace. No one is living to die prematurely in Nigeria. This is exactly how you keep on deceiving your listeners(anyway,people of the same task and disposition crave each others company). You will see hell. Rubbish!!!

  2. Which war are talking about,the war have started long ago through boko-haram as promised by you and other northern leaders,eg mohhamadu Buhari,Atiku,Buba Galadima,Adamu Ciroma during 2011 elections.So mr sheik Gumi,the war is on already,unless you will bring chemical weapons to just wipe us away one day.
