You’re Insulting Nigerians By Criticising Buhari, Stop It, Presidency Warns Kuka by deantimes(m): 11:05pm On Jan 13
By criticising the policies of President Muhammadu Buhari, Matthew Kukah, the Catholic Bishop of Sokoto, is disrespecting Nigerians especially supporters of the Nigerian leader.

Presidential spokesman, Garba Shehu, made the assertion while reacting to the ultimatum given to the Catholic Bishop by a muslim group yesterday.

Mr Kukah had in his 2020 Christmas message to Nigerians blasted the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari. He accused the Nigerian leader of institutionalizing nepotism in the country, adding that had a non-northern muslim leader did a fraction of what Mr Buhari has done, the person’s administration would have been toppled by now.

His comments generated mixed reactions. While the Catholic Church threw its weight behind the cleric, Muslims groups like the Muslims Right Concerns (MURIC) and the Jama’atu Nasril Islam (JNI) lambasted him.

The latest attack on the Bishop coming from Muslim Solidarity Forum (MSF) led by acting chairman, Isa Maishanu, is calling on the Catholic cleric to apologise or leave Sokoto State.

Mr Maishanu who described the comment of the cleric as provocative said his group’s concern is the image and reputation of Muslims, which, according to him, Mr Kukah finds pleasure in attacking without an iota of caution and by referring to him [the president] as a Muslim, that automatically brings all Muslims into the issue.

But describing the ultimatum as unconstitutional in a statement today, Mr Shehu said the cleric has greatly offended supporters of his principal and should desist from doing so in the future.

“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,” he said.

“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,” Shehu added.

Garba shehu should shut up


It's a pity so called Christians in areas of authority will keep quiet while these idiots keep taking about his lordship in this manner .


A stern word from obaseki or Osinbajo, or even Obasanjo will drive these sarassins to thier holes. But Christians occupying high positions have choosen to keep quiet.


They will be judged. undecided

Criticising Buhari is not something insulting to Nigerians. Praising Buhari's regime is a direct insult to Nigerians for the serial hardship his directionless policy is inflicting on the masses.

Anyone who criticise this tribalistically directionless administration is actually healing our wounds.

I think kuka is just using his religious position to stir up trouble. As a religious leaders u shouldn't be seen as partisan because u still have members of the other political party in your congregation. You can't expect people to see u as constructively criticizing govt when u are always actively in bed with pdp. Kuka and oyedepo are clearly not against buhari because of policies, rather just plain hate and political interest.

Wrong. There are people who constructively criticize the govt and the govt listens to them. People like bismarck rewana who are non partisan but focus on economic and other socio-political issues.

Nonsense. Buhari and Nigeria are two different entities even though zombies have elevated the man above the country.

Besides, how come this administration gets jittery at the mention of the word coup even if it's from a baby mumbling his first words.

I guess there's no peace for the wicked.

My brother you have said it all. I have asked people who claim the bishop is not into politics tu please show us the link of him criticizing Jonathan about farmer and herders killings in Jonathan’s regime, UN house bombing, The Christmas day bombing of catholic church in kaduna, bombing of the bus park in Abuja, kidnap of Christian chibok girls, massacre of young boys in buni yadi, all the appointment and hijack of GEJ govt by SE/SS while south SW was complaining.. Where was his sense of justice? Or all those didn't deserve criticism because GEJ dey give Transport fare in Dollars. Go back and check just like we know my people (Ndigbo) are pdp to the core and hate Buhari that even before he enteref they where condemning him..because Buhari is the president of SMAN and we will not share the money. Just like kukah everything you hear from 5%.,he hates igbo, appointment and Christmas day messages are all excuse to justify their hate.. Calling a dog a bad name in order to hang it.

Have actually listened to bismarck speak? He doesn't engage in petty politics or personalities. He tackles issues of national importance not cheap political statements. All this talk about being on Tinubu cp is baseless and pointless. Fake news

I hope this won’t escalate to Muslim and Christian issue with the way they are masturbating over father kukah’s statement.

Same Muslim group in the north and adherent of Islamic faith has refuse to make a strong statement against Boko Haram but they can masturbate over father kukah’s statement.

In Nigeria, whenever any influential person criticize an incumbent government, it is perceived that such person is a member of the opposition or enemy of the state.

How can a country like Nigeria that is so deeply divided (in reality, right in our own eyes) along religious and ethnic lines get it right ?

Nigeria is rotten, we are not united, we are not one we keep deceiving ourself about this in news paper journals etc.

Well it’s no more a secret that Nigeria is built on lies and deceit
