Lekki Shooting: No One Can Explain Buhari’s Silence, Says Kukah
Bishop Kukah

Bishop of the Catholic Diocese of Sokoto, Matthew Kukah has expressed surprise over President Muhammadu Buhari’s “continued silence” on the shooting of #EndSARS protesters in Lekki, Lagos state.

Speaking during a Channels TV programme on Wednesday, the cleric said it is the responsibility of the president to communicate his feelings to citizens and set the country on a particular path.

He expressed that the situation will not end until President Buhari wakes up to the fact that there is a major crisis in the country.

He expressed that the decision of the President to remain silent nor show concern is a culture of I-don’t-care.

According to Bishop Kukah: “Unfortunately for us, we have a President that seems almost unwilling to respond to the kind of reflexes that shows evidence that he is listening to wise counsel.

“I really cannot understand this. I feel totally helpless in the sense that I cannot find any reason and I don’t think any Nigerian in the right frame of mind can find a reason to why the president has remained so silent on this crisis,” he said.

Kukah said the apology rendered by Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo was to compensate for the president’s silence.
