Controversial Islamic cleric, Sheikh Ahmad Gumi has criticised the political leadership in Nigeria, saying that there is social injustice in the nation.
Gumi disclosed this while speaking at a peace-building symposium organised in Maiduguri as part of initiatives to reintegrate former Boko Haram insurgents into society.
According to him, the nation has a weak justice system, adding that the fabric of power is broken down.
“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.
