A group of Muslim scholars and clerics known as The Muslim Solidarity Forum have demanded an apology from Bishop Kukah for his alleged attack on Islam and Muslims or leave sokoto.
The group which labelled itself as an umbrella body for Islamic organizations, scholars and clerics, asked Bishop Kukah to apologies or leave the state following his 2020 Christmas Day message which according to them was an insult on Muslims and was capable of triggering religious violence in the country.
Recall that Bishop Kukah in his Christmas homily, accused President Buhari of promoting northern hegemony.
He added that there could have been a coup if a non-northern Muslim president had done a fraction of what the President has done since he assumed office in 2015.

At a press conference in Sokoto on Tuesday, January 12, the Acting Chairman of the Muslim forum, Sokoto chapter, Prof. Isa Muhammad Maishanu, said the message of the cleric was a direct attack on Islam. Maishanu said this is not the first time Kukah is attacking Islam and Muslims, especially those from the northern part of the country.
He faulted the message of Kukah in which he said if a fraction of the nepotism committed by Buhari, a Muslim and a Northerner, were committed by “any non-northern president, ” there would have been a coup in the country.”
