ICC Note: Bishop Matthew Kukah accuses the Nigerian government of enabling and contributing to the marginalization of Christian students in certain universities in the northern region. The Bishop also accuses professors and the curriculum used at these universities that promotes and condones violence against non-Muslims.
8/16/2018 Nigeria (All Africa) – The Bishop of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Sokoto, Matthew Kukah, has alleged marginalisation of Christian students in some tertiary institutions in northern Nigeria.
Speaking at a book launch organised by PREMIUM TIMES Books on Wednesday, Mr Kukah accused northern governors of aiding the alleged injustice.
“As I’m talking here now, whether it is Bayero University, Usman Dan Fodio University, most of the universities and tertiary institutions in northern Nigeria, Christians don’t have a place to worship after over 40 years of the existence of these universities and these are the areas where the intellectuals, those who are going to govern Nigeria, this is where they are.
