Matthew Hassan Kukah, Catholic Bishop of Sokoto Diocese, says there is no evidence to prove that President Muhammadu Buhari is listening to wise counsel.
Bishop Kukah made this remark when he featured on Channels TV’s Sunrise Daily programme on Wednesday.
The clergy’s comment was in reaction to President Buhari’s silence over the attack on unarmed ENDSARS protesters at Lekki Toll gate in Lagos on Tuesday night.
“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,” the Catholic Bishop said.
“Time is not on our side. You cannot kill people on the streets of Nigeria and 24 hours after, the President has still not spoken. This culture of I-don’t-care has matured to this point where we see corpses on the road and nothing has changed.
“What the youth are doing today is of much momentum and significance. And let the truth be told, we are not going to see the end of this so soon unless and until the President somehow wakes up to the fact that we have a major crisis in our hands.
“Ordinarily, it is not possible that we have this much blood on the streets of Nigeria yet there is no national broadcast, there is no show of empathy, and nobody has lost his job.”
