Unrepentant Kukah Releases Another Bombshell
Even though the controversy generated by his Christmas message has yet to die down, the Catholic Bishop of Sokoto, Most Rev. Matthew Kukah has accused the Nigerian elite of stealing at home and seeking repentance in Jerusalem and Saudi Arabia.
He said that this thieving privileged few have succeeded in turning the nation into a huge wasteland, huge debris of deceit, lies, treachery, double-dealing and duplicity.
Kukah stated this while delivering a sermon entitled, ‘A Nation in Search of its Soul,’ at the wake keep Mass for His Grace, Archbishop Peter Jatau at St. Joseph’s Catholic Cathedral, Kaduna.
The Catholic Bishop stated that the Nigerian elite has no care for the suffering masses, preferring to loot the nation dry through disingenuous means.
“We sin at home by stealing the nation’s resources, but we seek repentance and forgiveness in Saudi Arabia and Jerusalem in the guise of lesser or higher pilgrimages.
“We make money from abandoning projects duly paid for by governments, which have adopted ‘contractocracy’ as a governance mechanism.
“We are allowing others to use our money to develop their own infrastructure. Our elites all assembled in Dubai for Christmas and also to welcome the new year.
“As virtue recedes into the sunset in our country, there is an urgent need for us to pause and take stock of what is required to save our country,” Kukah stated.
Kukah had released a Christmas message that was highly critical of President Muhammadu Buhari’s handling of security and the nation’s diversity.
However, in a Wednesday statement, the Jama’atu Nasril Islam (JNI), which is an umbrella group for the Nigerian Muslim community, alleged that Kukah pretended to be attacking President Buhari but ended up “punching Islam and the Muslims”.
