August 09, (THEWILL) – Renowned Islamic cleric, Sheikh Ahmad Gumi, has criticised the political leadership and legal system in Nigeria, stressing that there is no such thing as justice in the country.
The cleric made the remark while speaking at a peace-building symposium organised in Maiduguri, as part of initiatives to reintegrate former Boko Haram insurgents into society.
Sheikh Gumi said, “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.”
