A senior aide to Sheikh Ahmed Gumi has denied knowledge of any letter written by his principal to General Muhammadu Buhari not to contest the 2015 Presidential General election.

The aide who identified himself as Usman Abdullahi, told Peoples Daily at Sheikh Gumi’s residence yesterday that he was in a position to know and talk on the matter.

The aide who looked disturbed about the purported letter said he suspects it is handiwork of hackers.

He further said his principal, who is currently out of the country will address the press on the issue whenever he comes back.

Also, an Islamic scholar, in Kaduna North Local Government Area, said that the purported letter written by the learned Islamic scholar, Sheik Ahmed Gumi to the former Head of State, General Muhammadu Buhari, not to contest the 2015 Presidential election is the handiwork of hackers and should be treated with caution.

The Islamic scholar who also spoke with Peoples Daily said, the Gumi he knows has every access to General Buhari, and would rather not discuss such sensitive issue on the Facebook, and therefore called on Sheikh Gumi to clear the air.

The purported letter, said to have been pasted on Gumi’s Facebook wall,said, “From my view if APC can support, as an example Amaechi or Okorocha/Kwankwaso or El-Rufai or Tambuwwal ticket and the PDP will have Ukpabio/Mu’azu or Ribadu or Shekarau, the next four years will. – insha Allah – witness stability both in the north and south. And the electoral body will get the necessary infrastructure that subsequently the next election will be free and fair and the true reflection of Nigerians”, he said.

Gumi said, in a message to Buhari entitled: “My candid Nasiha (advice) to Gen. Buhari”, posted on the Facebook wall of the Sheikh, that Buhari’s weakness was not in his past impeccable record of accountability of public wealth and the fight against corruption and indiscipline, rather his weakness was in his inability to control men compounded further by his strict and obsessive rejection of corruption.
