I never called for a Coup – Bishop Kukah Cries out


After so many shots fired at the Man of God, Bishop Kukah has come out publicly to say he never called for a coup, rather he just expressed his personal view. 

After the Bishop spoke at the Christmas message where he criticized Buhari and his style of leadership, so many people has asked the Bishop to drop his priesthood title and join the political race, the outspoken cleric said if he was to join politics, it would have been during the late Aminu Kano and not now.
Bishop Kukah, at a media conference with selected journalists held at St Bakhita Secretariat in Sokoto on Monday night, urged Nigerians to get the accurate statement rather than relying on different lies being peddled about in his name.
He emphasised that the message was based on his love for the country and had no political or ulterior motive as he was not trying to play politics either.
The Bishop said:

“I am pained and very sad that my emergency critics never see that many innocent lives are being lost daily. The loss of lives in the last ten years, even before this administration’s advent, calls for concern.

“The reactions are a reflection of every citizen that make up Nigeria. It is sad that when you drop something in Nigeria, everybody goes back to their enclave and abandon the larger picture. I am someone who never takes offence to what people say about me.

“What I said was my opinion based on evidence and what has happened in Nigeria, and if you looked into the records, there is evidence that justifies that statement, and if anyone thinks I am wrong, they should come out with a superior position.SEE ALSOArewa Youths Ask Security Operatives To Arrest Bishop Kukah Over Anti-Buhari Government Comment1 Comment38 Minutes Ago

“It is unfair for a journalist or news medium to report that I called for a coup while expressing my personal view about Nigeria.”
