This message has instantly generated reactions on social media with many people praising the outspoken activist and others lambasting him.

@UsmanAbdulRabiu in his reaction said Kukah targeted Islam.

“We are not in support of Buhari’s method of leadership, but Kukah’s statement is a direct attack on Islam and Muslims. Hence we can’t condone that.”

“Kukah is always attacking Buhari because he is Muslim. As a leader, you can’t always be humiliating the president who is in charge of security in Nigeria, one day it may happen to you.”

@OmideyiOlaide said:

“There was nothing absolutely in Bishop Kukah’s message that was against Islam and Muslims unless Buhari and his government are the ‘Islam and Muslims’. I am a Muslim. I believe in Almighty Allah and His Prophet Muhammad (SAW) and can say that the bishop did not attack Islam.”

@hassangaladima1 also added:

“I don’t have issue with anybody who throws stones at PMB. It is none of my business. But Kukah comment was an attack on Northern Muslims. Jonathan appointed over 50 Christians, 46 from SE. CAN president was in charge of arms purchase. Did Kukah call for coup? Be matured pls
