Rev Kukah denies collecting money from Jonathan

The Catholic Bishop of Sokoto, Mathew Hassan Kukah,
has debunked the perception that he was close to former
President Goodluck Jonathan for what he could get.

“Despite my friendship with Jonathan over this long
period of time, we never discussed a penny, we never
discussed one dollar; we never exchanged a penny, and
we never exchanged a dollar,” Rev Kukah said.

In an interview in the current edition of The Interview,
Kukah said those who thought they could smear him by
warming up to President Muhammadu Buhari were
responsible for fantasising his relationship with

“Suddenly, journalists whom I knew were writing, hoping
they would be given positions (by Buhari) and all those
who were abusing me have gone full cycle,” he said.

He went on: “Those who should be ashamed of
themselves are those who took money from Jonathan,
tonnes of it, and have decided to lie, buried under the
table; they have decided to change course in the middle
of the race. Those are the guys who you should be
talking about.”

In a statement, The Interview Managing Director/Editor-
In-Chief, Azu Ishiekweme, said:“This is Kukah with his
gloves off, anti-Kukahs of every stripe have their match
in this issue.”

The clergyman revealed that “certain people in the PDP”
have been telling him that Jonathan should have had a
long-drawn-out exit, like the disgraced Gambian
President Yahaya Jammeh.

He spoke about the continuing detention of the Shiite
leader, El-Zakzakky, and the bill for a Christian court,
expressing concern that “we are going back, we’re not
getting better.”

The edition also explores the love language of public
figures, including advertising icon, Lolu Akinwunmi;
journalist Funke Treasure-Durodola; the director of
Leventis Food, Tasos Amanatidis; and author and
celebrity, Teju Babyface.
