2023: Don’t Die In Their War For National Cake, Kukah Warns Supporters 

Muhammed Abubakar, Reporting

THE Catholic Bishop of Sokoto Diocese, Matthew Kukah, has advised loyalists and supporters of Nigerian politicians not to die in the war for acquiring the national cake.

Speaking on Channels Television’s Sunrise Daily on Tuesday, the fiery cleric reminded Nigerians that politicians are primarily friends jostling for what to ‘eat’ and shouldn’t be taken seriously.

Stonix News reports that the admonition is coming hours after the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Ahmed Tinubu; and his Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) counterpart, Atiku Abubakar, threw banters at the private wing of the Nnamdi Azikwe International Airport in Abuja on Monday.

Kukah, who is the Convener of the National Peace Committee, said political fanatics should take a lesson home from the public exchange of pleasantries between Tinubu and Atiku.

The septuagenarian said the message from the banter was lucid enough to the loyalists of both frontline presidential candidates for the 2023 elections that they should put on their thinking cap, eschew violence and not kill themselves for people who “drink from the same pool.”

“These politicians are struggling and they’ve lived their lives struggling for the national cake which they will distribute amongst themselves.

“It is, therefore, in the interest of ordinary Nigerians to know that they have to vote to stay alive,” the cleric said.

Kukah also said that enthusiasts of politicians “must understand that these politicians know themselves” regardless of their grandstanding and posturing.

He, therefore, cautioned supporters of candidates all over the country to be “a bit more restrained and wise.”

“We ordinary people must figure out how to manage our passion when it comes to politics.

“Don’t take, seriously, the grandstanding of the politicians.

“All the things you see about them abusing themselves or quarreling, you will think they will never shake hands.

“They are very good friends, and many of them drink from the same pool.

“So, don’t go and kill yourself for nothing. That is what that message is all about,” he said.
