The North Is Not Ready For The Truth - Sheikh Ahmed Gumi by tola9ja: 10:16pm On Jun 06, 2015


In an exclusive interview with Sahara Reporters, Islamic scholar and renowned leader, Sheikh Ahmed Gumi, provided his perspective on how Nigerians should fight Boko Haram. He was critical of the way Nigerians have thought about the issue.

“The North is not ready to hear the truth.”

Gumi suggested that Muslims in Nigeria aren’t aware of who their enemy really is. He believes that if Northerners can correctly identify the ones who are killing them. They can successfully defeat Boko Haram.

“We Muslims need to face the fact that some of us are killing some of us. Being a military man, he will stand up to see that he defeats Boko Haram. The fundamentalists may now feel more invigorated to fight till the end. There’s a chance that there may be more violence than before.” said Gumi

Sheikh Gumi also showed appreciation for former President Goodluck Jonathan’s conduct during the elections.

“President has showed a lot of statesmanship by conducting one of the fairest elections in the country, and then peacefully seceding to the winner.

“We are happy that things turned out peacefully.”

He also gave us his opinion on what he thinks about President Buhari’s new administration.

“We hope that President Buhari will conduct himself in the most amicable manner to drive this nation to safety.”

Gumi also had significant insight on what kind of leadership he believes is necessary to lead Nigeria out of its recent troubles.

“Leadership entails a lot of things, it’s not just about being honest, you need flexibility and other qualities, sometimes you have to be a fool to be a leader. Even the support Buhari got from the south is because they want him to do something drastic, drastic moves always backfire. Nigeria can’t take a drastic move, it needs a gradual process of getting there.”

Just like Amaechi is the only sensible person in the east, see where he is and where the rest of you are now. What sense did that Sheikh make by that statement? Some of us are killing some of us as if that wasn't obvious. Some northerners are killing some northerners, some easterners are kidnapping and sacrificing easterners for rituals, some westerners are beheading and castrating westerners for rituals. All these are obvious so what sense did the confused sheikh make?

No my friend. The north may have lost the top spot but they have never exercised more controll over the affairs of govt than they do now.

Since moving the capital to Abuja the north has claimed dominace over the civi service.

While southerners with very good degrees look for well paid jobs in multi national companies the north has infused children of the elite in prime positions within the civil service. In a few years down the road they will be eligible to occupy political appointments regulating whatever sector you think you control. Ask Sanusi.

The north's control of the military and security outfits is not debatable. Obasanjo thought by breaking their hegenomy in the officer cadre by promotong national representation into the NDA will solve this imbalance but he failed to see that the NCOs are over 70% northerner.

You may not know this but,, several southern junior and mid ranking officers have been killed in battle not by Boko Haram but by their own troops under their command.

How do you think the counter coup of 1966 was possible by junior northern officers? This was because the NCOs were mainly northerners.

The northerners are very disciplined and smart when pushing their collective cause.
When Jonathan said that Boko Haram has infiltrated his govt, this is what he was talking about.

[size=18pt]Birth of A monster[/size]

Mohamed Yusuf is widely accepted to be the original leader of the proscribed militant Islamic group commonly referred to as Boko Haram.

What most of you are not aware of is the original composition of Yusuf's inner circle which were drawn not from the vast population of poor ignorant masses in the north but from very educated young men of privileged background.

What most of you also are not aware of is that the radicalization of these young men did not begin with Yusuf or in some rundown Madrasah that dots northern Nigeria but in lecture halls in universities across northern Nigeria. They came to Yusuf because they could identify with his own very radical message.

The group gots it's nick name Boko Haram for its opposition of western styled education and mainly because the group was composed of young privileged and highly educated young men who turned their back on the world preferring a return to classical medieval Islamic society. Public destruction of certificates was done to woo more young men into their fold.

The group unsurprisingly continued to enjoy wide spread support among young northerners because of the energetic, vibrant and new perspective they offered. Within a short time, the group started to draw negative critism fom the old established clerics who not only frowned about their radical views but saw their own popularity wane in the midst of younger Muslims who preferred what Yusuf had to offer.

This critism will lead to both false and truthful allegations by the clerics to the authorities on the extent of the radicalization Yusuf was offering the youth. The security apparatus then swung in to investigate the activities of Yusuf and his group and severally he was "invited" to the police station to clarify issues. This only made Yusuf more popular among the youth and gave him an air of fighting the established order. The north was witnessing its first ever revolutionary character.

Yusuf sensing the new twist to his personality and movement will capitalize on his new found fame and status by pumping up the rhetoric even further. This is when the crooked politicians got to notice this young charismatic man. His popularity they (politicians) thought, could be used to their advantage and before long Yusuf added another feather to his influence and ego. With Politicians patronizing Yusuf and soliciting for his support base, things were bound to get to his head.

Here was this young man of humble background and limited education surrounded by children of the elite and the poor masses at his beck and call now getting visits from prominent local, state, regional and national political figures.

Before long the politicians began to use Yusuf's supporters to carry out violent attacks on their opponents for a fee paid to Yusuf off course.
This only made Yusuf more notorious with the security agents. But anytime he or any of his members were picked up both their highly placed political associates and the influential relatives of his Lieutenants swung into action to spring him out of custody.

Before long Yusuf built an air of impunity for himself and his members since they were always let go Scott free after any of their violent skirmishes within Borno. It didn't take long for concerned individuals to petition the DSS about Yusuf and before long he was picked up during the second tenure of Obasanjo and was held for a long period by the DSS. This was the time Yusuf met Asari in detention.

But eventually, Yusuf was released back into society and his aura had taken up legendary status.
This is a man that even the federal government could not convict.
From here on, grand delusions of grandeur began to set in and Yusuf thought he had everything at is disposal to take out the Nigerian state.

We thus, cannot exclude the influences of Yusuf's inner circle and their connections to the corridor of power in our polity in incubating the monster boko haram.

This goes to show that the Boko Haram insurgency has its roots in the northern oligarchy.

Abdulmutalab is a good example of how a young privileged and educated northern youth can become radicalized.

This is were the maitassine movement differs completely with that of Boko Haram.

The maitassine movement was drawn from the poor dredges of northern Nigeria. The maitassine movement was effectively dealt with because the northern oligarchy saw it as a revolutionary movement ( which it was) challenging their authority and dominance and as such this was why the group was completely isolated and summarily destroyed.

The case with Boko Haram is different as the group is intertwined with the northern oligarchy.

The northern oligarch has a lot to answer for Boko Haram.

Take for example the case of Abdullmutallab who is a child from a very privileged and influential family.

Abdul was mentored by no other than the current Emir of Kano, Sanusi Lamido Sanusi.

Sanusi, on his own part was found to be one of the architects and instigators of a sectarian riot in Kano during the Abacha regime. Sanusi was later imprisoned in Sokoto for 2 years before being exiled.

Sanusi then proceeded to Khartoom, Sudan where he mixed freely with radical elements like Osama bin Laden.

Sanusi also has another terror link with Ogueche, the mastermind behind the Maraba motor park bombings in Abuja. Ogueche fled to the same Sudan before his extradition was completed.

As Gummi rightly said the north and moslem community is not ready to know the truth about Boko Haram.


Boko Haram has at least 20,000 active fighters in the northeast.


Everyday, more and more northern moslems head to the NE to join Boko Haram.


Keep looking for who to blame for this madness.
