He denied speculations that he was sympathetic to the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) adding that his criticism is based on his quest for justice in Nigeria.
“There was a picture that was snapped at a mosque in Rigachikun. When I was invited to attend a wedding fatiha, on arrival I met him (Yero) and former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar, at the mosque.
“Then he (Atiku) was still in APC as a member and contested against President Buhari at the primaries, while Yero was then in PDP as a governor in the state.
“I was asked to sit in their middle so I did. Now the picture is in circulation that I am a PDP member, that PDP paid me to work for them.
“Rather, I see him as a Muslim brother. If he does justice I’m with him whoever he is,” Gumi said adding that he does not look at any Muslim as a PDP or APC member.
