With all the events that are unfolding, there is no evidence that President Muhammadu Buhari is listening to wise counsel concerning the unrest across the country, Bishop Matthew Kukah has said.
The Bishop of the Catholic Diocese of Sokoto warned that protests and violence will continue, until President Buhari addresses the nation.
Kukah said that “it is unfortunate that we have a President that seems almost unwilling to respond to the kind of reflexes that show evidence that he is listening to wise counsel concerning the unrest, following the tragic turn taken by the EndSARS peaceful protests.
“Unfortunately for us, we have a President that seems almost unwilling to respond to the kind of reflexes that show evidence that he is listening to wise counsel.
“Time is not on our side. You cannot kill people on the streets of Nigeria and 24 hours after, the President has still not spoken.
“Now, this culture of I-don’t-care has matured to this point where we see corpses on the road and nothing has changed.
“What the youths are doing today is of much momentum and significance. And let the truth be told, we are not going to see the end of this so soon unless and until the President somehow wakes up to the fact that we have a major crisis on our hands.
“Ordinarily, it is not possible that we have this much blood on the streets of Nigeria yet there is no national broadcast, there is no show of empathy and nobody has lost his job,” Kukah noted.
