Nigeria 2023 elections: Justice seems impossible – Kukah

Today, the Catholic Bishop of Sokoto, Matthew Kukah, has said Nigerians are frustrated by the results of the 2023 election and feels justice has eluded them.

Kukah, in a statement on Sunday, described Nigerians as men and women returning from a funeral with forlorn looks.

The cleric condemned the violence that trailed the elections, saying it cannot be accepted as the new ladder to power.

“Nigerians are so collectively frustrated that it is almost impossible to convince them that they can find justice,” Kukah said.

“Everywhere you turn today, Nigerians look forlorn, disconsolate, lugubrious, and despondent. Our swagger is gone. We look like men and women returning from a funeral, murmuring discontentment in hushed tones. It is therefore not surprising that even the victors are blowing a muted trumpet.

“Unpleasant as this may sound, this blood that they have shed could be seen as blood of the birth of a new Nigeria. It can become the blood of our new birth, our redemption. However, we cannot accept that violence and bloodshed are the normal route to power. Because like the blood of Abel, the blood of those who have been murdered continues to cry out to heaven seeking for justice ( Gen. 4:10).”
