God will choose Jonathan’s successor, says Kukah
Aug 2nd, 2014
The Catholic Bishop of Sokoto Dioceses, Rev Dr. Matthew Hassan Kukah ,has said the issue of who becomes the next President of the country in 2015 is in God’s hand and cannot be manipulated against God’s will.
He said the utterances of some politicians and religions leaders in the country are diminishing others whose lives are in danger especially on the issue of the release of abducted Chibok girls.
He noted that Nigerians must unite on the issue Chibok girls adding that the release of the abducted girls should not be left alone for the Federal government.
Bishop Kukah spoke on Saturday at the on-going synod organised by Evo Dioceses Anglican Communion in Port Harcourt, Rivers State capital, with the theme: Politics, Christians and Good Governance in Nigeria.
According to him, God who knows who will see tomorrow will determine who becomes the country’s next President and what Nigerians deserve.
He called on the Christians to ask themselves questions on what role they have played in the release of the Chibok girls noting that Christians must exhibit certain principles in whatever they do.
“The way we talk about issues affecting Nigeria is making everything to look as if we are at war with one another. We must mind what we say about the president and the country. Other African countries including develop countries are not happy with us yet we are not the worst country in the world.
“As far as I am concerned, the ultimate is the peace of the country. Some people said the President is weak, they said he is sponsoring impeachment against his enemies, that he is encouraging BokoHaram all these are not our problem but a lasting peace,” Kukah stated.
