The Bishop of Catholic Diocese of Sokoto, Bishop Matthew Hassan Kukah has said that from Olusegun Obasanjo unto Muhammadu Buhari, no of the Nigeria President fully prepared for the task of ruling the country.
“Since the return of Democracy, Nigeria has not got a president who is prepared to serve this nation. President Olusegun Obasanjo was picked from the prison and became a president.
“President Umar Musa Yar’Adu was preparing to return to the university for lecturing but he was picked and he became president. Goodluck Jonathan was a Vice President and became president through a doctrine of necessity after the death of Yar’Adu.
“He contested and won and when he wanted to leave, he was asked to re-contest for the second tenure but lost to President Muhammadu Buhari who had vowed never to contest the president again after contesting three times and lost.
“Buhari won his second tenure and he was begged against his wish to re-contest for the second tenure and he won, so we have no president that has contested election based on his conviction.”
Bishop Kukah spoke today, Friday, at the First Joint District Conference and 10th Anniversary Celebration of Rotary International, organized by District 9125 Rotary International with the theme “A decade of consolidation: The Journey so far,” held in Jos, the Plateau State capital.
According to Bishop Kukah, no country in the world would accept the level of injustice and corruption that take place in Nigeria, adding that time will come that voluntary organizations will withdraw from building hospitals, schools, and other social amenities and allow the government to face the anger of the people.
