Bishop Hassan Matthew Kukah, the Archbishop of Sokoto Catholic Diocese, has again yesterday berated the Buhari-led administration, saying that the president isn’t ready to deal with terrorists.
The Bishop expressed concerns as to why the Federal Government isn’t ready to expose the elements financing terrorism in the country, stressing that “Nigeria is decomposing from within.”
Delivering a sermon at the Priestly Ordination of Five Deacons at the Holy Family Cathedral, the cleric vented his anger at the terrible condition the country is in.
He was quoted as saying, “Nigeria is a broken country. It is decomposing from within. Our heart is broken and lives are haemorrhaging by the day. We cannot go on like this. The country and people have become so traumatised and sedated by horrible news, that have now become comfortable in ‘this swamp of evil’.
“No number of horrific deaths, murders, sexual violence and kidnapping of children or adults can make us stop our life of debauchery.”
Mr Kukah has been one of the fiercest critics of the Buhari administration, and the Presidency doesn’t take it lightly in replying to the bishop, in what could be tagged as ‘a war of words.’
