ABUJA-The Catholic Church has called on Nigerians to either join hands in speaking against evil and bad governance, rather than being emotional and unpatriotic to the truth. Noting however, that President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration has brought the country to its ebb. This was part of the statement released on Monday by the Catholic Secretariat of Nigeria, CSN, while reiterating their support for the truth and call on well-meaning Nigerians to declare support for Most Rev (Dr). Mathew Hassan Kukah, the Catholic Archbishop of Sokoto diocese, over his statements against the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari.
The church in her released through its National Director, Social Communications, Rev. Fr. Mike Umoh, said that only a sycophant and unpatriotic individual will attack Bishop Kukah, stressing that even the blind can attest to the economic hardship and bloodletting without solution from Buhari’s administration. The church debunked the aggressors of the Bishop who believed that he sought to activate violence and hinder national integration with his message. The Church frown on such people who lacks history and how a country is run. The press release:
“We are quite aware of the 2020 Christmas Message by our revered Bishop Hassan Kukah and the enormous space it has enjoyed on social media and in the public sphere.
“As expected, the agents of evil have gathered to attack the person of the Bishop and to discredit the simple obvious truth of the message. This is the stock in trade of evil people. “However, they often succeed when good people Christians, choose to do nothing. We are therefore calling attention to this new development so that we can all rise in unison and stand for truth. “The situation in Nigeria no longer allows anyone to sit on the fence, indifference is now a greater form of sin. Everyone must choose and stand up for what he/she believes in”.
“The truth about our nation is also that there are only two parties now existing: the good and the evil, the oppressed and the oppressor, the suffering people and the benefiting government officers and their families.”
It could be recalled that Bishop Kukah had accused President Buhari’s government of nepotism, bigotry and lack of will to led Nigeria out of its woe. The Bishop had also said that if Buhari were not to be a northern, a coup would have been planned. This has generated a lot of controversies while some loyalists to the president has called for the questioning of the Bishop.
