The Catholic Bishop of the Diocese of Sokoto, Matthew Kukah, has heavily criticised the President, Muhammadu Buhari over insecurity, corruption and division in Nigeria.
Kukah made his complaints known in his Easter Message on Sunday titled, ‘To mend a broken nation: The Easter metaphor’. According to the bishop, every aspect of life in Nigeria has been destroyed while corruption is enthroned.
He suggested that the way out is for the state to enforce the secular status of the Nigerian state so as to give citizens the necessary freedoms from the shackles of semi-feudal confusion over the status of religion and the state in a plural Democracy. We must be ready to embrace modernity and work out how to preserve our religions and cultures without turning religion into a tool for tyranny, exclusion, and oppression.
He also faulted amnesty granted to terrorists and former governors of Plateau State, Senator Joshua Dariye; and Taraba State, Rev Jolly Nyame.
