Bishop Kukah visits Tinubu, says one year not enough to judge his govt

He, however, said that the government needs to communicate
to Nigerians when it will fix the current socio economic challenges in the


According to him Nigerians are in various levels of pains.


“I’m sure that many people will tell you that one year is
not enough to make a judgement. However, from where we all stand, we know that
we are all in a very difficult situation.


“Nigerians are in various levels of pain and they are pains
that are unintended. But, they are as a result of certain policy decisions that
hopefully, with time, can be amended in order to serve the welfare of ordinary
people,” Bishop Kukah explained.


He said it is the responsibility of the government to ensure
better living conditions and security of the citizens.


“I believe that the essence of government is to guarantee
the welfare and security of ordinary citizens. I believe that the times that we
are in are very very difficult times, and nobody should be under any illusion.


“But, there are also times for renewal. We just need to
commit ourselves to the fact that building a good society takes a lot of time.
It’s not something that is done in one lifetime. And for me, the most important
thing is for us to continue on the building blocks of the things that we think are
being done well.


 “My argument has
always been that the government needs to very quickly improve the quality of
communication so that Nigerians can at least get a sense of how long is it
going to be before food is ready.”


On the current crisis in Rivers State, Bishop Kukah said he
believes Fubara and Wike will fix their problems.


According to him, it is the ordinary people that are
worrying over what is happening in Rivers State, but the politicians have a way
of settling themselves.


“This is politics. I’m very hopeful, we ordinary people cry
more than the bereaved. The important thing is that politicians will fix their


“Rivers State is a place that is very dear to me because I
have been associating with them for a very long time. But, look, when politicians
fight, don’t get carried away because they have their capacity to fix their


“I hope and pray that Rivers State will sooner than later
reposition itself because it is not an insignificant part of Nigeria,” he said.
