Bishop Matthew Hassan Kukah, Catholic Bishop of Sokoto Diocese on Wednesday visited President Muhammadu Buhari at State House in Abuja, the federal capital territory (FCT).
According to Femi Adesina, President Buhari shook hands with Bishop Kukah, who visited among Executive members of the Catholic Bishops’ Conference of Nigeria (CBCN).
Recall Kukah had in his 2022 Christmas homily lambasted Buhari, saying despite his lofty promises, the President would be leaving office with Nigerians “far more vulnerable”.
Speaking on the Catholic Bishop’s visit, Adesina, who is a special adviser on media and publicity to President Buhari, disclosed that when Kukah came into the Council Chamber, venue of the visit, he pulled him, and started laughing.
“We laughed heartily,” Adesina said, adding: “After it all, the Bishop invited me for a personal picture with him. Bishop Kukah was cooking peace this time, and how refreshing it was.

WHAT’S BISHOP KUKAH COOKING AGAIN?
Matthew Hassan Kukah, Catholic Bishop of Sokoto Diocese, was among Executive members of Catholic Bishops’ Conference of Nigeria (CBCN) who visited President Muhammadu Buhari at State House, Abuja, on Wednesday, January 11, 2023.
Recall that at Christmas, the Bishop had given a homily that was unduly critical of the President, and which was filled with inexactitudes. I had responded via an article entitled; Kukah, Don’t Cook Me Nonsense.
When the Bishop came into the Council Chamber, venue of the visit, he pulled me, and started laughing, asking whether we should be fighting or greeting each other. We laughed heartily.
During group photographs, the President, never holding malice against anyone, shook hands with the Bishop, describing him as “most vigorous fighter.”
After it all, the Bishop invited me for a personal picture with him. Bishop Kukah was cooking peace this time, and how refreshing it was.
