Nigeria @57: To Rule Nigeria, You Must Manage HER ANGER --- Kukah.

Father Matthew Kukah.
The Catholic Bishop of Sokoto Diocese, Rev. Fr. Matthew Hassan Kukah said in his presentation at THE PLATFORM, an event to celebrate Nigeria at 57 by the Covenant Christian Centre in Lagos said that the problem majority of our past military leaders have is their anger with Nigeria.

In his presentation titled “The Weakness of Power” warned that the country is at the tipping point where anything could go wrong. “Nobody knows what will trigger what, as it is in the country today.

It is therefore necessary for everybody, both the agitators of seperation and the reactionary, to exercise caution,” and while he deplored the use of violent communication and hate speeches in agitating for restructuring on the premise that everybody in Nigeria appears to be angry and uncomfortable with the way the country is, including those who are against the demand for restructuring, the cleric said it was the military mindset of President Muhammadu Buhari and one of his predecessors, Chief Olusegun Obasanjo, that made them to say they fought a civil war to keep the country united.

According to Kukah, the fact that the problem which Buhari, Obasanjo and all those in that category fought to keep the country together still remains shows there is a problem that must be addressed by all. “Whosoever wants to rule Nigeria must be ready to cope with her anger,” he said.
