BY SEGUN ADEBAYO, ABUJA – Former Aviation Minister, Chief Femi Fani-Kayode, has denounced the call that the Bishop of Catholic Diocese of Sokoto, Dr. Mathew Hassan Kukah, should leave the state, following his Christmas message.
The Muslim Solidarity Forum (MSF), Sokoto, had advised the Bishop to apologise over his Christmas homily or quietly leave Sokoto or stop what it termed “his malicious vituperations against Islam and Muslims”.
The group also called on Bishop Kukah to tender unreserved apology to the Muslim community.
Reacting to the position of the MSF, Fani-Kayode insisted that Bishop Kukah did not attack Muslims in his Christmas message, hence has nothing to apologise for.
In a series of tweets, Fani-Kayode wrote: “Bishop Hassan Kukah did not attack Islam and has nothing to apologise about.
“He has always sought for religious tolerance and peaceful co-existence between Christians and Muslims. Those that demand that he, “must apologise” or “leave Sokoto” must mind their utterances and keep the peace.
“If anyone can provide me with a video of Kukah calling for violence against Muslims or inciting people against Islam, I will give him one million Naira.”
