The Catholic Bishop of Sokoto Diocese, Bishop MATTHEW KUKAH, has asked President MUHAMMADU BUHARI to stop agonizing about the past administration but rather tackle the challenges facing the country.
He said Nigerians did not vote for him to complain about previous government but to perform better than his predecessor.
The clergymen stated this at a dinner organised by the Ondo State Government after the 2016 Catholic Bishops Conference of Nigeria held in Akure, the state capital.
He said further and I quote “I think the business of government is not our business; our business is, the previous government did bad, that is why we voted a new government. It is really about taking responsibility. No matter how much you praise or abuse former President GOODLUCK JONATHAN, he is no more the President of Nigeria”. End of quote.
In his remarks at the dinner, Ondo State Governor, OLUSEGUN MIMIKO, reiterated his call for the restructuring of Nigeria to reflect the needed true federalism as the only panacea for the development of the country.
MIMIKO expressed worries that the Federal Government was biting more than it could chew with the larger percentage of the resources at its disposal to the detriment of the federating units.
