Fiery Catholic Bishop of Sokoto Catholic
Diocese, Bishop Matthew Hassan Kukah,
has expressed anger against the Buhari
Administration’s war against corruption
and said President Muhammadu Buhari
does not understand corruption.
“My worry is that President Buhari
thought and probably still thinks
corruption is stealing money, and the
people stealing money are largely
bureaucrats or government officials,”
Bishop Kukah said, comparing the current
approach of the President to his failed
efforts in 1984 when he was Military Head
of State.
He added that the people who are his
new friends and party members in the
All Progressives Congress were the same
people he jailed in 1984.
He also said it is as a result of the
greatness of former President, Dr. Goodluck Jonathan, that he has not
stepped forward to unearth those things
he knows about corrupt people in the
country, who are now part of the Buhari
Administration.
Kukah added: “There are people who
are key kingpins in APC today who
were sentenced to various years of
imprisonment by Buhari in 1984, some
up to a 100 years, but since this is Nigeria,
many of them have finished serving their
100-year jail term.
“Buhari was not brought into power by
angels.
“We know the nature of the vehicle that
would bring anybody to the Presidency of
Nigeria.
“Well, there are a lot of people who were
beneficiaries of Jonathan’s corruption.
“I guess it’s a measure of the man’s
greatness that he has not stepped forward to tell people the things they need to
know.”
Speaking on GatefieldTV programme,
#ConversationswithAbangMercy, Kukah
attacked President Buhari on the issue
of religion and said the government has
failed to address the killing of Christians
and other ethnic minorities across Nigeria.
He said: “Over two years, with all the
killings across the Middle Belt, across
Nigeria by Fulani herdsmen, by all
kinds of people, destruction of churches,
everything that has taken place, we have
not heard an official statement from
the government not to talk of having a
conversation about compensation.”
Bishop Kukah also revealed the several
issues things he is angry about with the
Buhari government and argued that the
real opposition to his Presidency resides
within his government.
