Catholic Bishop of Sokoto Diocese Matthew Kukah thrilled his audience on Wednesday at a party to mark his 70th birthday by dancing to the viral ‘Buga’ song.
Since the release of ‘Buga’ this year by singer Kizz Daniel, it has become the toast of Nigerians and even foreigners.
Former President Goodluck Jonathan was among guests at Kukah’s party.
The ex-President said in a post to Facebook that “Bishop Kukah comes from a long tradition of productively engaging the Nigerian state, always deploying the experience of his considerable exposure, international reach, academic prowess and sense of justice to conscientise the society.
“When God blesses you with great intellection and erudition, as He has done in the case of Bishop Kukah, the Almighty also gives you the special assignment of serving as a key factor in the effort to guide your country to greatness.
“It is, therefore, not surprising that beyond serving in God’s Vineyard to win souls and make disciples, Bishop Kukah has been working fervently to see the nation reclaim its soul, reform its politics and make it work better for the generality of our population.
“I wish Bishop Kukah a happy 70th birthday and pray for God to grant him longer life in good health and the strength to carry on with his crusade for a just and functional human society.”
