Senator Ben Murray-Bruce says he is offering himself to “bring together” President Muhammadu Buhari and Bishop of Sokoto Catholic Diocese Matthew Kukah.
The former Bayelsa lawmaker’s offer came on Monday following the controversy sparked by Kukah’s scathing Christmas Day sermon on Buhari.
Kukah had accused the president of nepotism, adding that he was sacrificing Nigeria for the pleasure of the north.
Murray-Bruce, however, said he was a Catholic like Kukah and would love to help Buhari and the cleric understand each other better.
Some northern groups including Arewa Youth Consultative Forum have come hard on Kukah, calling for his prosecution.
On the cleric’s statement, the Federal Government warned clergymen to avoid comments that can stir strife in the season meant for joy.
