The Bishop of Catholic Diocese of Sokoto, Bishop Matthew Hassan Kukah has said no Nigeria president has ever prepared to serve the country and that was why poverty has to remain eminent in the nation.
Bishop Kukah disclosed this on Friday during the 1st Joint District Conference and 10th Anniversary Celebration of Rotary International, organized by District 9125 Rotary International in Plateau State.
He stated that Nigeria needed a president who is well prepared to serve the country.
According to Kukah, “Since the return of Democracy, Nigeria has not got a president who is prepared to serve this nation. President Olusegun Obasanjo was picked from the prison and became a president.
“President Umar Musa Yar’Adu was preparing to return to the university for lecturing but he was picked and he became president. Goodluck Jonathan was a Vice President and became president through a doctrine of necessity after the death of Yar’Adu.
“He contested and won and when he wanted to leave, he was asked to re-contest for the second tenure but lost to President Muhammadu Buhari who had vowed never to contest the president again after contesting three times and lost.
“Buhari won his second tenure and he was begged against his wish to re-contest for the second tenure and he won, so we have no president that has contested election based on his conviction.”
