Your Wicked Intention Shall Not Come To Pass, Presidency Fires Back At Bishop Kukah

The Presidency on Monday said the wicked intention of those who divided Nigeria with their mouths shall not come to pass.

The Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, said this in a tweet.

His reaction came a day after the Catholic Bishop of Sokoto Diocese, Most Rev Matthew Kukah, criticised the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari.

But in subtle response, Adesina tweeted: “Those who divided Nigeria with their mouths, with evil, unguarded speaking, are the ones now accusing President Buhari. How sad! Their wicked intentions shall not come to pass.”

Kukah, in his Easter message titled, ‘To mend a broken nation: The Easter metaphor’, had alleged that every aspect of life in the country had been destroyed while corruption was enthroned under President Buhari.

The bishop, who also criticised the president over his government’s “inability to tackle insecurity and corruption”, further claimed that President Buhari had divided Nigerians on the basis of ethnicity, religion, and region.

According to him, “The challenge of fixing this broken nation is enormous and, as I have said, requires joint efforts. With everything literally broken down, our country has become one big emergency national hospital with full occupancy.

“Our individual hearts are broken. Our family dreams are broken. Homes are broken. Churches, Mosques, and infrastructure are broken. Our educational system is broken. Our children’s lives and future are broken. Our politics is broken. Our economy is broken. Our energy system is broken. Our security system is broken. Our Roads and Rails are broken. Only corruption is alive and well.

“The greatest challenge for Nigeria is not even the 2023 elections. It is the prospect for the reconciliation of our people. Here, the Buhari administration sadly has divided our people on the basis of ethnicity, religion, and region, in a way that we have never witnessed in our history. This carefully choreographed agenda has made Nigerians vulnerable and ignited the most divisive form of identity consciousness among our people. Years of friendships, cultural exchange, and collaboration built over time have now come under serious pressure from stereotyping.”

He chided the President for what he said showing far greater commitment to integrating so-called repentant terrorists than getting our children back from kidnappers or keeping our universities open.

    Time will tell, who between you and my Lord Bishop Matthew Kukah, wants Nigeria to divide. Beware of what you say or write. You are an adult Christian who I am sure knows the consequences of cursing or putting forth your hands/acts against the anointed of God. God is the same, yesterday, today and forever. The king and worshipper of the Persian god on whose stable thou serveth knows about King David and fears His God; yet thou, who fed and drank of The Word of The God of David since thy birth speaketh abomination by thy mouth and fingers against a servant of The God of King David.
