The leadership of the Evangelical Church of Winning All worldwide said there is no denying the fact that Nigeria under the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari(retd.), is now a centre for bloodshed.

The ECWA church was reacting to the criticisms and condemnations that trailed the homily delivered by the Catholic Bishop of Sokoto, Bishop Mathew Kukah on Christmas day.

Kukah in his Christmas message, titled: ‘A nation in search of vindication,’ accused President Buhari of deliberately sacrificing the dreams of Nigerians to institutionalise northern hegemony.

The message drew the ire of the Presidency, Muslim Rights Concern as well as the Coalition of Northern Groups.

But the leadership of the ECWA church worldwide in a statement authored by its General Secretary, Rev. Yunusa Nmadu in Kaduna on Tuesday, insisted that there was nothing new in what the bishop said.

The ECWA church noted that the cleric had spoken the minds of millions of Nigerians and warned that nothing untoward must happen to Kukah.

They said rather than the Federal Government dissipating its energy to sponsoring fake groups to attack the revered Bishop, President Buhari “should face the job for which he swore to.”

The statement titled, ‘Bishop Kukah spoke our minds and nothing must happen to him, said, “The Federal Government must immediately take steps towards addressing those concerns raised by Bishop Kukah, rather than sponsoring fake groups to attack the revered Bishop.

“There is no denying the fact that Nigeria under General Buhari is now a centre of bloodshed. Killings, banditry, kidnappings, and all forms of insecurities are now the order of the day.
