Matthew Kukah has advised President Buhari to battle poverty and inequality in the country rather than condemn or heap blames on past administration.
“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."
Bishop Matthew Kukah, is the Catholic Bishop of Sokoto Diocese and has been one of the few clergies that have been vocal in the Nigerian politics.
