Twitter Reacts To Arewa Forum Demands For Bishop Kukah's Prosecution

247NNU had earlier reported that the Arewa Youth Consultative Forum (AYCF) demanded for the arrest and prosecution of Matthew Kukah, bishop of Sokoto Catholic Diocese, for "treasonable felony". 

Bishop Kukah in his Christmas messages on Friday had accused President Muhammadu Buhari of nepotism. 

He stated that there could have been a coup if a non-northern president did a fraction of what Buhari has done. 

Reacting to Kukah’s remark, Shettima urged the Federal Government to place Bishop Kukah on a special watch list. 

 Shettima said Kukah was openly attempting to “set the South against the North in order to destabilize our country and further complicate matters.” 

“Such a reckless statement by Kukah betrays something much more sinister against both the North and the nation as a whole because Nigeria is at a stage that it requires responsible advice for attaining peace and stability, not deliberate attempt to mischievously compound our problems,” he said.

“If Kukah wants to play politics, he should not do so in the pulpit and he should keep the bishop’s office aside and choose any Nigerian political party platform to contest for the president in 2023 and stop all the pretenses.”

The AYCF president said Kukah should be reminded of the struggle to rid the country of military dictatorship.

“We will not allow opportunists who did make any contribution to scuttle the democracy achieved through the sweat and toil and the sacrifice of our liberty,” he said.

Reacting threats and demands made b y the Arewa youth forum, some netizens has taken to various social media platform to voice their opinions on the subject.
