Catholic Bishop of Sokoto Diocese, Most Rev Mathew Kukah has said his criticism of the last administration of President Muhammadu Buhari was never personal.
According to him, the only problem he had with the former president was his inability to manage the country’s diversity.
Daily Trust reports that Bishop Kukah was always at loggerheads with the Buhari government and was one of the fiercest critics of the administration.
Speaking in an interview on Arise, Kukah said, “Buhari has served his terms. He also knew and I respect him for that, that there was nothing I was saying that was personal. I imagined poor Adesina and his team had a job to do and they needed to do that job even though there was nothing to say.”
On the six months of President Bola Tinubu in power, he stated that while the six months might be too short to rate a sitting president, many expected him to hit the ground running having prepared for the race for over 20 years.
“Given the volatility in the market and its impact on the lives of ordinary Nigerians, policy intentions need to be more properly calibrated and articulated otherwise people are going to get very despondent despite the good intention,” he stated.
