2 weeks ago Dammylink 0
The Muslim Rights Concern (MURIC), in a statement signed and made available to DAMMYLINK by the director of the organization, Prof Ishaq Akintola, has called on Bishop Matthew Kukah to resign from the General Abdul Salaam-led National Peace Committee.
MURIC said it believes that those comments by the cleric are inconsistent with his status, particularly as the secretary of Nigeria’s Peace Committee.
“How did such a belligerent combatant emerge as the secretary of Nigeria’s Peace Committee? What good can come from a man who is filled with hate and bias for a large section of the country?” MURIC’s statement asked.
Recall that Bishop Kukah of the Sokoto Archdiocese of the Catholic Church had in his Christmas message to Nigerians, bemoaned the nepotism which, according to him, has characterised the government of President Muhammadu Buhari.
The cleric claimed there could have been a coup or war in the country if a non-Nothern Muslim was the president in the last five years and did some of the things Buhari is doing.
