- The Evangelical Church of Winning All has reacted to the statement credited to Bishop Mathew Kukah
- According to the leadership of ECWA, the Catholic bishop spoke the truth about President Buhari
- The church in a statement issued by its general secretary warned against any attempt to harm him.
The leadership of the Evangelical Church of Winning All (ECWA) on Tuesday, December 29, drummed support for Bishop Mathew Kukah insisting that there was nothing new in what he had said.
In a report by The Punch, ECWA in a statement issued by its general secretary, Rev. Yunusa Nmadu in Kaduna, on Tuesday, December 29, stated that the cleric had spoken the minds of Nigerians.
Legit.ng recalls that the bishop of Sokoto Catholic Diocese made national headlines after he accused President Buhari of nepotism in his Christmas Day message.
According to ECWA, there is no use denying that the country under the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari is now a centre for bloodshed.
The church leadership went on to warn against anything happening to Kukah, adding that the Nigerian leader should face the job for which he swore to and fulfill his campaign promises.
They said rather than the federal government dissipating its energy to sponsoring fake groups to attack the bishop, the government must immediately take steps towards addressing those concerns raised by Kukah
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had reported that Lauretta Onochie, Buhari's aide on social media, lent her voice to the ongoing saga involving the Bishop Kukah.
Onochie, in response, insinuated that Kukah's outburst may have come as a result of Buhari refusing to part with money.
In a post on her Twitter page on Monday, December 28, she said both the president and the cleric have met a number of times and she shared photos to back her claim.
In a related development, the Christian Association of Nigeria has accused the federal government and the president of Muslims Rights Concern, Professor Ishaq Akintola, of twisting Bishop Kukah’s statement against the Buhari-led government.
The northern chapter of CAN defended Kukah, saying he never made any statement attacking Islam or calling for a coup.
The Christian body, in a statement released on Monday, December 28, said Kukah's statement was twisted. The group said Professor Akintola’s earlier statement as a reaction to Kukah’s message was misleading.
