#EndSARS: Appreciate Wise Counsel — Bishop Kukah Tells Buhari


BY COBHAM NSA – The Catholic Bishop of Sokoto Diocese, Matthew Hassan Kukah is worried that President Muhammadu Buhari seems to be ignoring wise counsels on addressing the ongoing #EndSARS protests across the country.

He said despite the tragic events following the #EndSARS peaceful protests, “There is no evidence President Muhammadu Buhari is willing to respond positively to the worries of Nigerian youths.

The Clergyman warned that the situation will not end until the President “wakes up to the fact that there is a major crisis in the country.”

Bishop Kukah, who was a Guest on Channels Television programme, Politics Today, on Wednesday, lamented that about 24 hours after the Lekki Toll Gate shooting of peaceful #EndSARS protesters on Tuesday, the President is neither spoken nor showed concern.

Claiming that the Buhari presidency seems to be promoting “a culture of I-don’t-care”, Kukah said; “Unfortunately for us, we have a President that seems almost unwilling to respond to the kind of reflexes that shows evidence that he is listening to wise counsel.

The Clergymen called on the President to change his ways and act in the nation’s overall best interest, saying; “Time is not on our side. You cannot kill people on the streets of Nigeria and 24 hours after, the President has still not spoken.”

“Now, this culture of I-don’t-care has matured to this point where we see corpses on the rod and nothing has changed.”

However, in offering insights on what solutions to the crisis should be, Bishop Kukah said: “What the youths are doing today is of much momentum and significance,

“And let the truth be told, we are not going to see the end of this so soon unless and until the President somehow wakes up to the fact that we have a major crisis on our hands.”

For the outspoken cleric, there is no pretence many Nigerians are pained that the President remains silence in spite of so much bloodshed due to disturbing insecurity in the country.

“Ordinarily, it is not possible that we have this much blood on the streets of Nigeria yet there is no national broadcast, there is no show of empathy and nobody has lost his job”, he lamented
