Bishop Kukah lauds youth participation in politics
Ahead of the 2023 general elections,the Archbishop of Sokoto Diocese, Bishop Mathew Kukah has lauded Nigerian youths for their recent political participation.
Kukah while speaking on Arise TV on Thursday said the era of rhetorics must be put behind Nigerians and that the electorates must sieve and interrogate the presidential candidates on their ideology, plans and governance style before making their choice.
He said it was important for the political actors, particularly the presidential candidates to listen to the young people, understand their frustrations, and align their agenda toward assuaging their grievances.
“The passion that drove people in 2015 has dissipated. The people have understood they were lied to and we have all seen the consequences of religious manipulations.
