The Presidency has replied Catholic Bishop of Sokoto Diocese, Mathew Kukah, after he accused the Buhari-led administration of dividing the country on ethnic and religious lines. 

The President’s Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, fired back at Kukah in a statement titled ‘Kukah’s virus of hate.’

Shehu who accused Kukah of having hatred for Buhari’s administration and using the pulpit to play politics, also quoted different biblical passages, alleging that the Bishop “devoted his Easter message not to Christ’s death and rebirth so Man might be saved – but to damning the government in the most un-Christian terms.”

He further asked Kukah to remove his clerical garb, join partisan politics and see how far he can go.
