Kukah Blows Hot, Reveals Those Responsible For Nigeria’s Current Tragedy

The Catholic Archbishop of Sokoto Diocese, Matthew Hassan Kukah on Wednesday urged Nigerians to use the opportunity offered by the 2023 general elections to “right the mistakes of the past when they elected bad leaders.”

According to him, with the series of rebellion and agitation by youths against bad governance, it was obvious that Nigeria had become a nation “consuming its own children and faced with the prospects of an uncertain future.”

Kukah said, “We are treading on a dangerous path. Our young people are feeling disempowered. We are faced with a nation that is consuming its own children, we are faced with the prospects of an uncertain future. It is impossible, even the worst enemy of Nigeria would never have contemplated that this is where we will be.

“The 2023 elections will give Nigerians another opportunity to think of the mistake we made. The tragedy that has now afflicted our country and where we find ourselves is no excuse for us to become despondent. The tragedy that has now afflicted our country is no excuse for us to become despondent.

“Whether 2023 happens or whatever the case may be, we prayerfully hope it happens, it gives us another opportunity to think of the mistake we made. Most of us are complicit despite the fact that of course, using the agencies and agents of state, those in power always continue to seek to close the space.”

He said after fighting for the enthronement of democracy in Nigeria, civil society went to sleep after chasing away the military from governance.

Also speaking during the event, the Director of Centre for Democracy and Development, Idayat Hassan, said “In the last six years, the civic space has shrunk. For the fact that I can’t go on Twitter without a VPN has impacted on my right.”
