‘We are mistaken in assuming that we have had a transition from dictatorship to democracy’ – Kukah



The Catholic Bishop of Sokoto Diocese, Matthew Kukah, has said that that Nigeria is still under the dictatorship system of government.

Kukah stated this on Tuesday at a town hall meeting on ‘Fixing Nigerian elections’ and organised by YIAGA.

According to him, military interference in Nigeria’s politics made the system to be so quarrelsome.

The Bishop stressed that Nigerias’ judiciary system is not living up to the wishes of the people in electoral cases.

He said, “We are mistaken in assuming that we have had a transition from dictatorship to democracy. We still haven’t.

“This is why we are showing all kinds of systemic malfunctioning. When we talk about political parties, we have assumptions. The truth of the matter is that in our own case, in Nigeria, we have the greed and the political interest.

“Clearly what we have in Nigeria, as we have seen with the occasional malfunctioning of the system midway through the journey, manifested in the quarrelsomeness nature of the process and the way the judiciary has now come to undermine the wishes of the people.”
