FATHER KUKAH MUST BE ALLOWED TO PRACTISE HIS FAITH AND POLITICS

The reported ultimatum by a group based in Sokoto, “Muslim Solidarity Forum,” calling on the Bishop of Sokoto Diocese, Most Rev Matthew Hassan Kukah to tender an unreserved apology to the entire Muslim Ummah over his recent “malicious comments” against Islam, or quietly and quickly leave the state, is wrong because it is not in line with the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.

Under our Constitution, every citizen has the right to, among others, freedom of speech and expression, the right to own property and reside in any part of the country, and the right to move freely without any inhibitions. Nigeria’s strength lies in its diversity. The right for all religions to co-exist is enshrined in this country's Constitution. The duty of the government, more so, this democratic government, is to ensure that the Constitution is respected. But all must respect the rights and sensitivities of their fellow Nigerians.

Father Kukah has greatly offended many with his controversial remarks against the government and the person of the President, with some even accusing him of voicing anti-Islamic rhetoric.

On matters such as these, responsible leadership in any society must exercise restraint. Knee-jerk reactions will not only cause the fraying of enduring relationships, but also the evisceration of peaceful communities such as Sokoto, the headquarters of the Muslim community as beacon of pluralism and tolerance. The Sultanate has historically had good relations with followers of all faiths. That is why Father Kukah was received on his arrival in Sokoto with friendship and tolerance.

Under our laws, groups or factions must not give quit notices, neither should they unilaterally sanction any perceived breaches. Where they occur, it is the courts of law that should adjudicate. Unilateral action is not the way to go.

Groups such as the Muslim Solidarity Forum must be seen to share and uphold the country’s multi-religious principles. And individuals like Father Kukah must respect the feelings of his fellow Nigerians in his private and public utterances.

The Church should transfer Bishop Kukah to Enugu, Owerri, or Port Harcourt. Bible says a living dog is better than a dead lion. Everyone knows what moslems can do.

The only reason buhari is having sleepless nights is because he has no power to replace Bishop Kukah with one Yusuf Bello from daura or one Salisu lawal from kaduna. if he has such powers General overseer of Reedem, Dunamis, Living faith will have been Ibrahim Bachir (Zamfara), Ahmed nuru(Kaduna), Mohammed Adamu( Kano) respectively just to prove his normal northern hegemony as usual.
Any small thing this APC administration will start using strange words like
Presidency
Kitchen Cabinet
Cabal
Qota system
Treasonable fellony


Just to confuse the citizens .

And so what? Is he not a Nigerian? Anyway, what is the presidency calling unconstitutional? The so call group is acting under Sharia law but let me warn that in the event any harm befalls Kukah the jajanweed APC would realize that they have thrown Nigeria into a mindless Religious war.

"...Father Kukah has greatly offended many with his remarks against the government and the person of the President, with some even accusing him of voicing anti-Islamic rhetoric...
What about all the highly inflammatory statements that have emanated from elements of this government where in have caused this nation its national cohesion:

-"Dogs and baboons will be soaked in blood.."
-The mathematical incorrect "97%" and "5%" statement.
-"APC will form a parallel government" treasonable statement by Rotimi Amaechi.
-"The people simply reacted to the outcome of the election." Statement justifying the 2011 election violence that led to the death of 11 youth corps members as well as many other Nigerians.

Truth only offend these holier-than-thou people when they felt threatened.Tell me if the truth said by the Sultan (Col.Abubarkar Sa'ad-rtd), Umar Dangiwa, Junaid Mohammed, sheikh Ahmed Gumi and even Tinubu The Nation's newspaper on the nepotism of this govt have insulted or justified what many Nigerian have been saying or not.

This present government nepotism didnt start today because same thing happened in 1983-85.Bunch of sanctimonious hypocrites.Senseless and useless presidency.

This government is learning slowly. You don't want to mess with a high ranking Catholic priest. Trump tried it with the pope Francis see am today.

You fight the church and they will come with everything else against you.

This matter is getting unnecessary attention. If they ignored him, they will have to wait until another Christmas before he writes another
