Barely two weeks after he criticised the current administration for failing to fulfill its campaign promise to secure Nigeria, Catholic Bishop of Sokoto Diocese, Matthew Hassan Kukah, visited President Muhammadu Buhari in Aso Villa today, Wednesday, January 11.

Buhari and Kukah were in a warm embrace with the president describing the Catholic Bishop as a strong fighter.

Bishop Kukah was in company of other executive members of the Catholic Bishops Conference of Nigeria who paid a visit to the President at the State House in Abuja, today.

The president’s spokesman, Femi Adesina disclosed the cordial greetings between Buhari and Kukah on his Facebook page. Adesina wrote on his wall thusly: “During group photographs, the President, never holding malice against anyone, shook hands with the bishop, describing him as ‘most vigorous fighter.’

“After it all, the bishop invited me for a personal picture with him.

“Bishop Kukah was cooking peace this time, and how refreshing it was.”

In his 2022 Christmas message at St. Mary’s Catholic Church, Sokoto, Kukah had grieved that President Buhari failed to fulfill the promises he made to Nigerians in 2015.
