“Bishop Hassan Kukah didn’t assault Islam and has nothing to apologise about.
“He has at all times searched for non secular tolerance and peaceable co-existence between Christians and Muslims. Those who demand that he, “should apologise” or “depart Sokoto” should thoughts their utterances and maintain the peace.
“If anybody can present me with a video of Kukah calling for violence towards Muslims or inciting folks towards Islam,I’ll give him a million naira.”
