Written by on April 18, 2022
The Bishop of Sokoto Diocese, Mathew Kukah, has lauded President Muhammadu Buhari for accepting the report of the Committee on the Prerogative of Mercy and granting pardon to about 150 Nigerians serving various jail terms.
Kukah made the commendation in his Easter message delivered at a mass service on Sunday, in Sokoto.
He said another challenge was to immediately free all innocent Nigerians held captive and whose only crime was that they were living in Nigeria.
He lamented the increased cases of kidnapping, banditry and other criminality and stressed the need for collective efforts against the menace.
He advised the President to concede that it was within his powers to decide how we are going to end the war that had engulfed and was tearing down our nation.
The Bishop urged Nigerians to remain steadfast in prayers towards overcoming the challenges.
