The Buhari Media Organisation BMO has accused the Catholic Bishop of Sokoto Diocese, Bishop Matthew Kukah of displaying gross partisanship following his open display of support for the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Alhaji Atiku Abubakar.
The group consequently called for the Bishop’s withdrawal from the National Peace Committee led by former Head of State, Gen. Abdulsalam Abubakar.
In a statement on Tuesday in Abuja signed by the group’s Chairman Niyi Akinsiju and Secretary Cassidy Madueke, “We are also demanding that having shown his hand, he has no reason to sit on a panel that is meant to be non-partisan.
“This is not expected of a clergyman who is seen in some quarters as the alternate head of the National Peace Committee.
“He has shown his bias and as such cannot be trusted to be non-partisan,” the group stressed.
It dismissed claims by the Catholic Bishop that he was not aware of the political nature of the gathering as tales that no one would believe.
