He said that former Presidents Olusegun Obasanjo, Musa Yar’Adua, Goodluck Jonathan and the current leader Muhammadu Buhari were never prepared to lead the nation.

According to the cleric, due to poor leadership, many Nigerians are wearing garments of poverty.

Kukah made these known on Friday in Jos, Plateau State, during the 1st Joint District Conference and 10th Anniversary Celebration of Rotary International.

He spoke on the topic: “Inspirational Leadership and Humanitarian Service.”

“Since the return of Democracy, Nigeria has not gotten a president who is prepared to serve this nation,” he said.

“President Olusegun Obasanjo was picked from the prison and became a president.

“President Umar Musa Yar’Adua was preparing to return to the university for lecturing but he was picked and became president.

“Goodluck Jonathan was a vice president and became president through a doctrine of necessity after the death of Yar’Adua.”

He also said, “Buhari won his second tenure and he was begged against his wish to re-contest for second tenure and he won, so we have no president that has contested election based on his conviction.”
