The Catholic Bishop of Sokoto Diocese, Dr. Matthew Kukah, on Friday said no president of any country in the world could be as irresponsible in the use of power as a Nigerian president.
The cleric said among other things, an average Nigerian president emerged out of circumstances and not out of competence or leadership capacity.
Kukah stated this in Akure, the Ondo State capital, while delivering a lecture at the annual Ulefunta/Oyemekun Festival, titled, “Building blocks for a good society.”
The event was held at the Francis Idibiye Lecture Hall of the Federal University of Technology, Akure, a statement said.
Kukah noted the structure of the Nigerian presidential office made its holders extremely powerful, so much that he could deploy power the way he wanted.
He said, “No president in the world has the kind of power the Nigerian president has and as such, no president in the world can be as irresponsible as the Nigerian president.
