The Country is Ours to Fix – Bishop Kukah


Catholic Diocese of Sokoto State, Bishop Matthew Kukah, has spoken on the election in Anambra State. He advised the people of the state on their decision to make a leader out of the election because the country is for everyone to fix. The revered cleric noted that the decision they make will come with consequences. Hence, they must endeavor to make the right decision.

“If you decide not to vote, it then means that the candidate you don’t want to win may probably be the one to win the election. And you have to live with the consequences, to a very little extent, except you say that our lives are in the hands of God.

“I do not think that any citizen of Nigeria should feel so afraid of their lives that they will be afraid to live up to their political responsibility. Whatever reservations anybody may have, this is a family affairs.

‘’It is not that we are in the military which somebody has been imposed on the people of Anambra, you are choosing from among themselves,” Kukah said.

Kukah added that he was in the state alongside the chairman of INEC to spur the people to exercise their fundamental human right. In addition, he noted that Anambra State has produced great Nigerians, including former President Nnamdi Azikiwe; former Vice President, Alex Ekwueme; former Senate President, Chuba Okadigbo; former Vice Chancellor of the University of Ibadan, Prof. Kenneth Dike, and “Cardinal Arinze who would have been a Pope.”

Besides, the cleric also said that the state has no business being hesitant on issues of democracy. In his words, ‘’This country is ours to fix and Anambra has the manpower. Each of the people contesting this election is literally qualified to contest for the presidency of Nigeria.”
