The Catholic Bishop of Sokoto Diocese, Matthew Kukah has cautioned loyalists of politicians not to kill themselves in demonstrating support for their candidates.
According to the septuagenarian priest, opposition politicians are friends jostling for their piece of the national cake and shouldn’t be taken too seriously.
Kukah spoke on a television programme on Tuesday hours after the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu; and his Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) counterpart, Atiku Abubakar, bantered at the private wing of the Nnamdi Azikwe International Airport in Abuja on Monday.
Kukah, who is the Convener of the National Peace Committee, said political fanatics should learn a lesson from the public exchange of pleasantries between Tinubu and Atiku.
He said the message from the banter is that political loyalists of both frontline presidential candidates for the 2023 election should be wise, eschew violence and not kill themselves for people drinking from the same pool.
