The Presidency has condemned Sokoto based Muslim solidarity Forum MSF for calling on the Catholic Bishop of Sokoto Diocese Dr. Mathew Kukah to tender unreserved apology to Muslims, or quietly and quickly leave the state over his controversial Christmas essay
Professor Isa Maishanu of MSF has described the essay as a malicious comment against Islam.
In a statement by the Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity Garba Shehu, said the group comment is wrong because it is not in line with the constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.
According to Shehu under Nigeria’s constitution every citizen has the right to among others freedom of speech and expression the right to own property and resident in any part of the country and the right to move freely without any inhibition.
However the youth wing of the southern Kaduna Peoples Union SOKAPU has however vowed to retaliate any form of attack on Kukah, over his recent message on Nigeria’s woes.
It was reacting to Maishanu’s statement asking Kukah to vacate the seat of the Caliphate.
Kukah had written in his Christmas essay that every honest Nigerian knows that there is no way any non Northern Muslim President could have done a fraction of what President Muhammadu Buhari has done with his nepotism and got away with it.
