Sheik Gumi Slams Private Jet Politicians Who Attended Yusuf Buhari’s Wedding



Sheikh Gumi

Sheikh Ahmad Gumi has criticised politicians who flew in a private jet to attend the wedding ceremony of Yusuf Buhari and his wife, Zahra.

Recall that Yusuf and Zahra got married in a ceremony that took place in Bichi, Kano State on Friday, August 20.


The wedding attracted powerful dignitaries including former Nigerian leaders, diplomats, businessmen, monarchs, and many others.

A video was shared online showing the large number of private jets that flew into the Aminu Kano International Airport for the wedding.

The Islamic scholar who was displeased by this development said the politicians displayed opulence amid abject poverty in the country.

According to Guardian Newspapers, the cleric tackled the politicians while preaching at the Sultan Bello Mosque in Kaduna over the weekend.

“Umar bn Kattab once took 16 dinar, which is equivalent of N2,040,000 today, from the treasury as estacode to Hajj. After their return, Umar admitted to Abdallah that they wasted public funds. Somebody told me private jets in Nigeria were all hired for the wedding of Buhari’s son.

“Some people are in captivity in the bushes and cities. Hunger is everywhere. People are facing all manner of problems, yet politicians spent public funds on private jets,” he said.
