Islamic Group Fight Back As Bishop Mathew Kukah Calls President Buhari A Hegemonic Religionist

The Nigerian Supreme Council for Islamic Affairs (NSCIA) has responded to Bishop Kukah’s comment that described President Buhari as hegemonic religionist in the affairs of the country.

According to the PUNCH, the Head, Media and Communications of NSCIA, Ibrahim Aselemi stated that the utterances of Bishop Kukah as a religious leader should be guided by trio of national cohesion, security and love for Nigeria.

He described Kukah’s comments as misleading and carefully crafted to weaken confidence of Nigerians on Buhari government.


Recall that on Tuesday at Good Shepherd Major Seminary, during the burial mass of Michael Nnadi, a seminarian who was killed by kidnappers, Bishop Mathew Kukahin his homily had said “the president has displayed the greatest degree of insensitivity in managing our country’s rich diversity. He has subordinated the larger interests of the country to the hegemonic interest of his co-religionist and clansmen and women.”

Kukah maintained that under Buhari, “to hold a key and strategic position in Nigeria today, it is more important to be a northern Muslim than a Nigerian.

Do you think Kukah was right in his statement or was the Islamic group trying to play religious politic in defending President Buhari as one of them?
