A Kaduna-based Islamic scholar, Sheik Ahmad Gumi, has said that the re-election of President Goodluck Jonathan would create crisis in the country, adding that he should relinquish his presidential ambition because of peace. 

In his letter to Jonathan, Gumi averred that the president is dangerously leading Nigeria into chaos and turmoil that only God knows where it would end.

Sheik Gumi in the letter, posted on his Facebook page, said, ?Mr President, what I heard from people who are close to you is that you are humble with a soft heart. But still, humility is never enough for effective leadership. Leadership is about listening and taking good advice from people of wisdom not from those that benefit from you or have any agenda other than the unity and progress of this Nation.

?Mr President, we have never met despite the fact that we were all born and we lived for more than half a century in this great vast country, Nigeria. It?s here we all grew up and were educated and I presume except by divine providence it?s here that we will all be buried.

?So what matters is the legacy that we will bequeath our children and the next generation of Nigerians. We will not want a burnt country with hundreds of thousands dead, maimed or displaced people because of the thoughtlessness and recklessness of its stewardship.

?I hereby candidly advice you to relinquish your presidential ambition because of peace, stability and well-being of millions of innocent Nigerians. There are many politicians that can ?finish? it on your behalf.?
