Ben Murray-Bruce offers to ‘bring together’ Bishop Kukah and Buhari

Senator Ben Murray-Bruce says he is offering himself to “bring together” President Muhammadu Buhari and Bishop of Sokoto Catholic Diocese Matthew Kukah.

The former Bayelsa lawmaker’s offer came on Monday following the controversy sparked by Kukah’s scathing Christmas Day sermon on Buhari.

Kukah had accused the president of nepotism, adding that he was sacrificing Nigeria for the pleasure of the north.

Murray-Bruce, however, said he was a Catholic like Kukah and would love to help Buhari and the cleric understand each other better.

“I’m catholic, and so is Bishop Kukah. The religious faith in Nigeria is vital to our coexistence and must be seen as such.

“I, therefore, offer myself to bring together Bishop Kukah and President @MBuhari in the interest of Nigeria for a better understanding of each other,” he tweeted.

Some northern groups including Arewa Youth Consultative Forum have come hard on Kukah, calling for his prosecution.

On the cleric’s statement, the Federal Government warned clergymen to avoid comments that can stir strife in the season meant for joy.
