The Catholic Bishop of Sokoto Diocese, Matthew Kukah, delivered a powerful plea to President Bola Tinubu, stating that God and history would not forgive the president if he failed to fulfill his promise of bringing about “renewed hope” in Nigeria, in his Christmas message on Monday.

Bishop Kukah commended President Tinubu on achieving his long-sought presidency, emphasizing that after two decades of political struggle, the time has come for Nigeria to undergo positive transformations under his leadership.

He urged the president to put an end to the divisive instrumentalization of religious, ethnic, and regional identities, emphasizing the need for a united nation.

If Tinubu Fails Neither God Nor History Will Forgive Him- Bishop Kukah

Addressing Tinubu directly, Kukah stated, “Your future and that of our country are in your hands. Mr. President, you have no excuses before God or the people of Nigeria. Neither God nor history will forgive you if you fail. This is our moment, our date with history. Now, all eyes and ears are on you. Our prayers for a united country are with you.”

Highlighting Tinubu’s “Renewed Hope” agenda, Kukah acknowledged that Nigerians have almost lost hope in a government genuinely caring for them. He urged the president to ignite hope, emphasizing the importance of ending partisanship and addressing the deep-seated issues rooted in corruption.


“Nigerians have lost hope in our politicians putting our interests first and dealing with the cancer of corruption. We want evidence we can see and touch,” Kukah urged, emphasizing the need for tangible actions rather than mere promises.

The bishop also called for an end to senseless killings, abductions, extortion, and kidnappings, stressing the restoration of the sacredness and sanctity of human life. He firmly stated that blasphemy laws have no place in a democracy, emphasizing the consequences of allowing distorted narratives to flourish.

In a crucial call to action, Kukah urged President Tinubu to purge the public service of corrupt individuals who have turned public service into an ignoble enterprise.

He acknowledged the presence of many sincere individuals willing to serve but emphasized the necessity of removing corrupt figures at the top.


The message from Bishop Kukah serves as a poignant reminder to President Tinubu of the expectations and responsibilities that come with his presidency, emphasizing the urgency of addressing Nigeria’s deep-rooted issues for the benefit of its citizens.
