...Being the statement by the Catholic Bishop of Sokoto Diocese, Bishop Matthew Hassan Kukah on December 25, 2020
"President Buhari deliberately sacrificed the dreams of those who voted for him to what seemed like a programme to stratify and institutionalise northern hegemony by reducing others in public life to second class status.
He has pursued this self-defeating and alienating policy at the expense of greater national cohesion.
Every honest Nigerian knows that there is no way any non-Northern Muslim President could have done a fraction of what President Buhari has done by his nepotism and gotten away with it.
There would have been a military coup a long time ago or we would have been at war.
The President may have concluded that Christians will do nothing and will live with these actions.
He may be right and we Christians cannot feel sorry that we have no pool of violence to draw from or threaten our country.
However, God does not sleep.We can see from the inexplicable dilemma of his North"
