While decrying that religion seems to have gradually become the citizenship rather than the nationality in Nigeria, Bishop Kukah said the misuse of religion has made it a subject of interest in the polity.

“It is only in Nigeria that religion matters in politics hence we have seen misuses of power in the name of religion”

To the Nigerian Chirstians, Bishop Kukah said it’ is inefficiency that makes things matter. “Inefficiency is another word for corruption. Nigeria is one funny country that you can do whatever you like and nothing happens. You hear people stealing billion and it ends like that”.
