Ekiti State Governor, Dr Kayode Fayemi has congratulated the Bishop of Catholic Diocese of Sokoto, Most Revd (Dr) Matthew Hassan Kukah on his appointment into the papal dicastery for promoting integral human development.
Fayemi described the dicastery as a perfect place for Kukah because “it is one of the apostolic ministrations of the papal in reaching the weak, seeking social justice and ending all forms of practices inimical to the dignity of man.
“It goes without saying that your role as a pastor, social commentator, public intellectual, peace-maker, interfaith conciliator and fighter for the rights of the underprivileged, readily recommend you for this latest addition to your enviable pedigree as a social justice crusader”, the Governor said.
Fayemi added that he had no doubt that the Bishop would bring his competence and character to bear on his new role.
” On behalf of my wife, the government and good people of Ekiti State, kindly accept my best wishes as you resume your new role” , the Governor added.
