Again, Bishop Kukah rattles Buhari



Spread The News

After a while in quiet, Bishop Matthew Hassan Kukah, head of the Catholic Diocese of Sokoto, has again fired a series of shots at President Muhammadu Buhari over the APC federal government refusal to expose Boko Haram sponsors.

The cleric described Nigeria as a broken country decomposing from within while “lives are hemorrhaging by the day”.

Kukah spoke at the priestly ordination of five deacons at the Holy Family Cathedral. The church released his sermon on Sunday, the weekend of Nigeria’s independence celebration.

He expressed concern about Buhari’s refusal to expose the names of Boko Haram sponsors, after the United Arab Emirates (UAE) published the names of six Nigerians prosecuted for Boko Haram affiliation  in a list of 53 individuals and entities.

“We know that this road is dangerous, is rocky, and treacherous; it takes lives, but it is all too familiar. The bodies and the emotions of men and women are irretrievably broken.

“We have become experts at burying the dead, but refuse to ask why the killings continue. We cannot overstate the reality. It is clear that neither politics nor economic models can fix the country”, PM News quoted him as saying.

He insisted the political class is intoxicated with power and loot.

“Our people, fleeing their homes after over ten years have now turned refugee camps into their habitats. Our identity as citizens is being traded for the status of migrants and refugees.”

Kukah further expressed dismay about how the civic space in Nigeria is slowly closing, with citizens losing ordinary freedoms to the crippling hands of totalitarianism.
