Catholic priest, Bishop Matthew Kukah has advised President Muhammadu Buhari to tackle the root cause of poverty and inequality before corruption.

I still believe that unless we get to the root cause of poverty and inequality, which are really the evidences and symptoms of corruption; you can talk of fighting corruption all the rest of your life and very little is going to happen," Kukah said.

Continuing, Kukah said: “Sending people to prison will only be useful if it puts bread on the table of the people.“

He chided the current administration for antagonising he past administration saying: "I think that people must understand that you take power to solve problems not to agonise."
