Kukah to Buhari: Nigerians didn’t vote you to blame previous administration

The Catholic Bishop of Sokoto Diocese, Bishop Matthew Kukah, on Wednesday urged President Muhammadu Buhari to stop blaming the past administration for the country’s challenges but do what Nigerians voted him for.

Kukah said this at a dinner organised by the Ondo State Government after the 2016 Catholic Bishops Conference of Nigeria held in Akure, the state capital.

According to Kukah, President Buhari should quit the blame game and tackle the country’s challenges.

Kukah said Nigerians expect him to perform better than his predecessor, stating that the previous government also embarked on some commendable projects.

He said, “We didn’t  vote a government to complain about yesterday, if we wanted yesterday the new government would not be there. The previous government didn’t only do bad things; he did a lot of good things.

“I think the business of government is not our business; our business is, the previous government did bad, that is why we voted a new government. It is really about taking responsibility. No matter how much you praise or abuse (former President Goodluck) Jonathan, he is no more the President of Nigeria. I think that people must understand that you take power to solve problems not to agonise.

“We are not asking you to change the whole world, but Jonathan created problems: we are now riding a train between Abuja and Kaduna now; the train wasn’t there before. Things that Jonathan did that can help Nigeria, let’s continue with them. The bad things that Jonathan did and those who deserve to go to prison should go to prison. “
