Your Best Was Not Good Enough – Kukah Hits Buhari

Nigeria's President, Muhammadu Buhari and Bishop Matthew Kukah

The Catholic Bishop of Sokoto Diocese, Matthew Kukah has told President Muhammadu Buhari that his best as the country’s leader was not enough to solve the nation’s problems.

VANTAGE NEWS reports that Kukah made the submission while featuring as a guest on Channels Television’s Politics Today on Wednesday night.

Kukah, who described Buhari as a good man, stated that the president was unprepared before taking the mantle of leadership.

He said, “That’s why, if we don’t get to the heart of the consequences of nepotism – I’m not looking forward to a president of Nigeria who is a Christian or who is a Catholic, who will for example just turn a lot of these things upside down and begin to punish other people for the sins that they didn’t commit.

“I’m not hoping that a Christian or anybody will be president and say, ‘No, it’s now time for us to do what those who came before us did.’ When you raise these issues, these are the kinds of things you hear from people in government: ‘Jonathan did this, Jonathan did that.’

“The fact that we didn’t succeed suggests very clearly we didn’t prepare for this examination and the lesson we take aware is that – I believe Buhari is a good man. He’s done his best, but his best was not enough. His best speaks to the quality and level of his preparedness, and his ability to assemble a team.”
