Bishop Mathew Kukah accused the Nigerian Government of PIGGISHNESS - read what he said

Bishop Mathew Kukah has said that the Nigerian government is using different methods to achieve the same goal of Islamic dominance like Boko Haram.

The Bishop of Sokoto Diocese has said this while reacting to the beheading of 10 Christians recently carried out by suspected Boko Haram terrorists in the Northern zone of Nigeria.

The Bishop compared the government with Boko Haram, added that the only difference between the two is that the later makes use of a bomb to achieve their aims.

In a press statement released by the Bishop’s media team on Tuesday evening quoted him as speaking in the United Kingdom with Catholic Charity Aid to the Church in Need.

Bishop Kukah said, “The only difference between the government and Boko Haram is (that) Boko Haram is holding a bomb.

“They are using the levers of power to secure the supremacy of Islam, which then gives more weight to the idea that it can be achieved by violence. With the situation in Nigeria, it is hard to see the moral basis they have to defeat Boko Haram.

“They have created the conditions to make it possible for Boko Haram to behave the way they are behaving,” he added.

“If the people in power don’t do enough to integrate Christians then they give oxygen to Islamism.

“If they have countries where everybody is Muslim in power then you give vent to the idea that Islam should be supreme.”
