Leave Bishop Kukah, fight bandits – Shehu Sani to Northern youths

Shehu Sani, former Kaduna Central Senator, has called on youths in the North to fight bandits and leave Bishop of Sokoto Catholic Diocese, Mathew Kukah alone.

In his Christmas message, Kukah had accused President Muhammadu Buhari-led administration of nepotism.

He claimed that Buhari had sacrificed the dreams of Nigerians on the alter of nepotism and Northern hegemony.

But, the Coalition of Northern Groups, CNG, accused the clergyman of attempting to destroy the quest for national integration by instigating violence.

CNG said Kukah was using religion to cause disharmony and facilitate the further emasculation of Northern Nigerian Muslims.

However, Sani, in a tweet wrote: “My Dear Northern Youths; leave the Kukah in Sokoto and fight the Bandits in your shokoto.”

The last 10 years have been terrible for many Nigerians especially in the north since the incidence of boko haram terrorists. Thousands of lives have been lost and many others displaced and left with life time scars.

The fact that these are not just men but also women who have had enough, sends a strong message to anyone who cares to see them for what they are doing right now.

In a developed and peaceful country, these young men would have been in functioning schools or at business places earning good live. But since all that has been taken away by insurgency, they have decided to do that which the government has not done for them. This is securing themselves and their loved ones even if it cost their own life, they would rather die trying to bring change.

A lot of people have reacted to this as they call out the government over failed priorities in the north and the nation at large. Here are some of the words from people on twitter:
