Kukah said:

“Let me be clear, I don’t have a problem with President Buhari. I am unhappy with the way governance is being done. I don’t have to like the president and the president doesn’t have to like me as well.
“This is our country and we have to make it great. If my brother were the chairman of a local government, will that stop me from telling him what he does not do right?"

According to This Day, the bishop pointed out that his major concern is how to stop the killings and attacks that have been occurring in the country in the last few years.

He stated that he has no problem with Muslims, Christians or any other religion, pointing out that the problems he spoke against affect all Nigerians.

The religious leader said:

“To make it more interesting, a retired General from the North-West who is a Muslim has also released a statement on his handle to say all what I said is true."
