Bishop of Sokoto Diocese, Matthew Kukah, seemed to knock out secessionist calls on Saturday when he said the cost of staying together as a nation is cheaper than the cost of dividing Nigeria.
He, however, blamed the All Progressives Congress government of the President Muhammadu Buhari, for making people feel alienated from governance through inequality in power distribution at the highest levels.
Kukah spoke virtually at the 2021 edition of The Platform, an annual conference organised by Pastor Poju Oyemade of the Covenant Christian Centre, Lagos. The programme was themed, ‘Is Devolution of Powers The Solution To Nigeria’s Problems’. (Punch)
