The Kukah Centre (TKC) is a Nigeria-based policy research institute, founded by Most Rev. Matthew Hassan Kukah, Bishop of the Catholic Diocese of Sokoto. The Centre has offices in Abuja and Kaduna and treats political leadership as a collaborative exercise that requires multiple governance structures at various levels – individuals, households, small businesses, the organized private sector, NGOs and government.
Interfaith dialogue is at the core of the Centre’s work and involves actively promoting conversations among Nigeria’s faith communities, as well as between leaders in faith and public policy. The Kukah Centre aspires to become Nigeria’s leading institution for the promotion of an active and engaged citizenry by providing support for inclusive dialogue and advocacy initiatives.
Inter-faith dialogue is at the core of the Centre’s work and involves actively promoting conversation among Nigeria’s faith communities as well as between leaders in faith and public policy.
We believe that to secure our future, we need to raise and train leaders for the next generation imbued with a sense of service based on shared values.
The Centre’s good governance programs seek to foster an informed and active electorate that recognizes the urgent need to participate in shaping government policies.
Some of our events and activities are presented in photos and words.
