In a move that will surprise many observers, the catholic church has defended Bishop Catholic Diocese of Sokoto, Matthew Kukah against those who are criticizing him.

Kukah had in the state of the nation message delivered on Christmas Day accused President Muhammadu Buhari of nepotism.

In its backing, the national directorate of social communications of the Catholic secretariat of Nigeria in Abuja, said that the attacks that the message has attracted is ‘the stock in trade of evil people”.

The church said:

“As expected, the agents of evil have gathered to attack the person of the Bishop and to discredit the simple obvious truth of the message…However, they often succeed when good people, Christians, choose to do nothing.”

Meanwhile, Nigerian have also taken to the social media to back the fiery clergy man.

In his reaction, Shehu Zubairu said he admires the bishop’s boldness and courage in speaking truth to power.

He wrote:

“Your boldness and courage are what I admire. Bitter truth and I won’t be surprised if you are attacked by the blind supporters.”
