The Catholic Bishop of the Sokoto Diocese, Matthew Kukah, has been characterized by President Muhammadu Buhari as a fierce fighter.
The Catholic Bishops Conference of Nigeria leaders, including Kukah, visited the President on Wednesday at the State House in Abuja.
Bishop Matthew Kukah of the Catholic Diocese of Sokoto has been referred to by President Muhammadu Buhari as a fierce fighter.
On Wednesday, Kukah was one of the executives of the Catholic Bishops Conference of Nigeria that paid the President a visit at the State House in Abuja.
The visit occurred shortly after Kukah claimed that Buhari had broken his 2015 pledges to Nigerians in his Christmas speech presented at St. Mary Catholic Church in Sokoto.
On Kukah’s visit with the Catholic bishops to the State House, Adesina, in a post on his Facebook page, said Buhari displayed no form of malice to the cleric.
He said, “When the bishop came into the council chamber, the venue of the visit, he pulled me, and started laughing, asking whether we should be fighting or greeting each other. We laughed heartily.
“During group photographs, the President, never holding malice against anyone, shook hands with the bishop, describing him as ‘most vigorous fighter.’
“After it all, the bishop invited me for a personal picture with him.
“Bishop Kukah was cooking peace this time, and how refreshing it was.”
