God will use our powerlessness to institutionalize His power, says Bishop Kukah as he commissions Sokoto CAN Guest House

BY ANKELI EMMANUEL, Sokoto

The Catholic Bishop of Sokoto Diocese, Bishop Mathew Hassan Kukah, Saturday, commissioned the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) Guest House in Sokoto State.

Kukah, who admonished Christians in the State to note that despite owning the place, it is to serve all, irrespective of religion, added that, “all that matters is that there should be acceptable guidelines, protocols and operational modules that conforms with sanity in place.”

Admitting that the body of Christ in Nigeria is facing very trying times, Bishop Kukah counselled Christians to remain steadfast in their faith irrespective of persecutions, adding, “No amount of persecution will push Christianity backward rather forward.”

While lamenting that religion has been misused in the country, he stressed that “It is only in Nigeria that religion matters in politics hence we have seen misuses of power in the name of religion.”

Bishop Kukah also said that “inefficiency is another word for corruption,” pointing out that “Nigeria is one funny country that you can do whatever you like, and nothing happens. You hear of people stealing billions and it ends like that.”

He advised against the amassing of unholy wealth, noting that “the Kingdom of God is not built on material blocks, hence we must be a little restrained in the aggressiveness with which we amass materials if they are of evil roots.”

Consoling Christians in Nigeria over chains of attacks in their worship places, Bishop Kukah urged them to read what Christians went through in the days of the Roman Empire, stressing that, “God will use our powerlessness to institutionalize His power.”

Speaking earlier, Sokoto State CAN Chairman, Very Rev Father Nuhu Iliya said the newly commissioned CAN Guest House does not belong to any individual rather to all Christians.

On his part, former CAN chairman of Sokoto, Rev Ahmadu Mamman appealed to Christians in Sokoto and all over Nigeria to be more united, forge a common front and work towards having a State CAN worship center that does not belong to any denomination but to all Christians.

Among the dignitaries who graced the occasion were CAN coordinators from across the 23 LGAs of Sokoto State.
