BREAKING: Kukah meets Tinubu, says Nigerians are in pains

Prominent Catholic priest, Bishop Matthew Kukah, has said that Nigerians are suffering various degrees of pain due to some policies of the federal government.

Kukah stated this on Wednesday, May 15, after a private meeting with President Bola Tinubu at the state house in Abuja.

Addressing journalists after the meeting, Kukah noted that most of the sufferings and hardships experienced by Nigerians during the Tinubu administration were unintended.

“So many people will tell you that one year is not enough to make a judgement. However, from where we all stand, we know that we are all in a very difficult situation,” Kukah said.

“Nigerians are in various levels of pain; pains that are unintended. There are also certain policy decisions that, hopefully, can be amended in order to serve the welfare of the ordinary people.

“I believe that the essence of government is to guarantee the welfare of ordinary citizens. I believe that the times that we’re in now are difficult times and nobody should be under any illusions.

“But this is also time for renewal; we just need to commit ourselves to using a good society. It takes a lot of time and cannot be done in one lifetime. For me, the most important thing is to continue on the building blocks of things that are being done well.

“My argument has always been that the government needs to, very quickly, improve the quality of communication so that Nigerians can get a sense of how long it will take before food is ready,” he added.
