Bishop Kukah gives advice to secession agitators in Nigeria
Matthew Kukah, the Bishop of Sokoto Diocese, has advised secession agitators that it would be cheaper to stay together as one country.
The Bishop gave the advice on Saturday while speaking virtually on this year’s ‘The Platform’, organized by Pastor Poju Oyemade of The Covenant Nation in Lagos.
The cleric, however, blamed President Muhammadu Buhari, for making people feel alienated from governance through inequality in power distribution at the highest levels.
According to him, “The challenge now is how do we connect back because all the things we are hearing now, nobody would have expected to hear them and now everybody wants to go home.
“Yes, it may be right for everybody to want to go. Yes, it may be right for people to want to feel so dissatisfied that they want an end to what we have today. But the cost of staying together is far cheaper than the cost of everybody going their way.
“The most important thing here is that the government must give us a reason – the body language – we need to be inspired as a country to inspire ourselves that this country is worth the psychological, the spiritual and the cultural engagements.”
