Kukah: Fani-Kayode cautions Muslim forum

Former Minister of Aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode, has warned Islamic group, the Muslim Solidarity Forum, to be mindful of its utterances against the Catholic Bishop of Sokoto Diocese, Matthew Hassan Kukah.

NEWSCASTARS.COM had reported that the Sokoto-based group in a statement signed by its acting Chairman of MSF, Prof Isa Maishanu asked Kukah to vacate the state or tender an apology over his comments on Islam in the cleric’s Christmas Message.

Reacting, the former minister tweeted, “Bishop Hassan Kukah did not attack Islam & has nothing to apologise about. He has always sought for religious tolerance & peaceful co-existence between Christians & Muslims. Those that demand that he “must apologise” or “leave Sokoto” must mind their utterances & keep the peace.

“If anyone can provide me with a video of Kukah calling for violence against Muslims or inciting people against Islam I will give him one million naira.”

Kukah, in his December 25 message, had accused President Muhammadu Buhari of nepotism and failure to protect Nigerians which has spark reactions from the the camp of the pro-Buharists.

The cleric had said, “One Northern Imam after the other have posted videos of lamentation on the social media asking why, with all the cards of power in the hands of northern Muslims, everything is bursting in the seams. How come our region has become a cesspool of blood and death? Why did President Buhari hand over a majority of the plum jobs to Northern Muslims? Was it for efficacy and efficiency? What was the logic? President Buhari must pause and turn around because his policy of nepotism has been rejected by the gods.”
