Written by Olarotimi Oshin on February 20, 2023
In the 62-year history of Nigeria, spanning democratic and military governments, no president or head of state was ready to hit the ground running, the Bishop of the Catholic Diocese of Sokoto, Matthew Hassan-Kukah, has said.
“You can go all the way down in Nigeria, you’re not going to find one single person who has been president or head of state in Nigeria that came prepared for the job,” Kukah said during an appearance on Channels Television’s Roadmap 2023 monitored by Royal Times .
Kukah used the analogy of a bad marriage to explain the relationship between Nigeria and its political leaders.Giving a snapshot of Nigeria’s recent political history, Kukah argued that the country has yet to produce an executive head who is prepared for office.
