To those calling him to drop his priesthood cassock and join the political fray, the outspoken cleric said if he was to join politics, it would have been during the late Aminu Kano and not now.
As .s and counter-.s continue to trail his Christmas message, Bishop of Sokoto Catholic Diocese, Matthew Hassan Kukah, has denied calling for a coup.

Bishop Kukah, at a media conference with selected journalists held at St Bakhita Secretariat in Sokoto on Monday night, urged Nigerians to get the accurate statement rather than relying on different lies being peddled about in his name.

He emphasised that the message was based on his love for the country and had no political or ulterior motive.

“I am pained and very sad that my emergency critics never see that many innocent lives are being lost daily. The loss of lives in the last ten years, even before this administration’s advent, calls for concern.

“The .s are a reflection of every citizen that make up Nigeria. It is sad that when you drop something in Nigeria, everybody goes back to their enclave and abandon the larger picture. I am someone who never takes offence to what people say about me.

“What I said was my opinion based on evidence and what has happened in Nigeria, and if you looked into the records, t. is evidence that justifies that statement, and if anyone thinks I am wrong, they should come out with a superior position.SEE ALSOArewa Youths Ask Security Operatives To Arrest Bishop Kukah Over Anti-Buhari Government Comment1 Comment38 Minutes Ago

“It is unfair for a journalist or news medium to report that I called for a coup while expressing my personal view about Nigeria,” he noted.

“I have no plan and will never . partisan politics for any reason. Those who link my message to partisan politics are only .ing to the gallery.

“Take, for instance, brilliant Nigerian youths making comments about Chelsea or Arsenal and have never been to England, does that make them .ers of such club sides?

“So, why will someone think because Bishop Kukah is speaking; t.fore, he is a politician? People who make this argument are ignorant of elementary politics and ignorant of the role of a Priest.SEE ALSODon’t Use Christmas Period To Cause National Disunity, Lai Mohammed Cautions Kukah Over Attack On Buhari19 .2 Days Ago

“The truth is that a lot of us have not seen a priest saying what I am saying. The fact of the matter is, we are all in politics, but party politics for me, no. I am not a member of any political party, and I cannot be. If it comes to voting, I do my right.

“Whatever I said can please or displease anyone, but that is my own opinion and doesn’t stop others from saying their own opinion. If you think my motive is wrong, say yours.

“I have no problem with Muslims, Christians, or any other religion, but what I don’t like is when someone is using a religious issue to . politics, it is wrong.”
