Bishop of the Catholic Diocese of Sokoto, Bishop Matthew Kukah, says the only challenge he’s confronted with at his new age of 70 is the poor governance in the country.
Kuka, who clocked 70 years on Wednesday, stated while speaking on Arise TV programme, Morning Show, on Friday.
Kukah said Nigerians were being governed by some personalities lacking in passion and the interest to move the country forward.
According to him, “I would have said I have no regret but the only regret I have outside and inside this country is to see how a nation with such incredible human being ruled by people who are lacking the passion and commitment to place this country in where it ought to be.”
Also, speaking on his continued agitation for better governance, the Catholic Bishop said, “My energy is from the street of Nigeria, the ordinary people I see whether they are Christians or Muslims.
“I have with the sense of modesty, put a little scholarship in my years of priesthood, focusing on citizens and how we can change the lives of the people.”
Bishop Kukah, who was in 2021 appointed by Pope Francis as a member of the Dicastery for the Promotion of Human Integral Development, is reputed for constantly speaking truth to power on the state of the nation.
Kukah had a few months ago challenged President Muhammadu Buhari to reveal the names of the sponsors of the Boko Haram insurgents causing havoc in several parts of the country.
