The Bishop of the Sokoto Diocese of the Catholic Church, Bishop Matthew Kukah, has slammed tertiary institutions in the north over their insistence that Christian students in those schools were not allowed to practice their religion on campus
The ever vocal minster of the gospel also took a swipe at some governors of northern states for their refusal to approve allocation of lands spaces in the campuses for the Christian students worship.

Kukah, while speaking at a book launch organised by Premiumtimes, accused the 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.
