ABOUT US

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.

It is better to lead from behind and to put others in front, especially when you celebrate victory when nice things occur. You take the front line when there is danger. Then people will appreciate your leadership., Nelson Mandela
The Almajiri is the poster child of the horrible and inhuman conditions of the northern child. It is a best kept secret that the region refuses to confront but it has now exposed its underbelly. Now, what next for the children of the north? ...What will they remember and how will they remember? Their fate and future are a dream deferred, a nightmare that will be ignited by the fire next time.www.catholicdiocese-sokoto.orgExcerpts from 2020 CHRISTMAS MESSAGE: A Nation in Search of Vindication, 2020 © + Matthew Hassan Kukah
Every Religion has the seeds of its own redemption or destruction... The boundaries between faith and reason are delicate but they are fundamental to how society builds a moral code. Faith without reason breeds the fanatic, the demagogue who genuinely but wrongly believes that he has heard the voice of a god ordering him to kill another. Reason without faith produces the ideologues who will also kill because the ideology of the state orders him to do so. Societies can only survive when a Constitutional basis has been established to create a balance between both extremes and to place our common humanity at the centre of every pursuit.www.catholicdiocese-sokoto.orgExcerpts from the Homily at the Funeral Mass of Seminarian  MichaelNnadi, on 11th February 2020 at Good Shepherd Seminary, Kaduna, 2020 © Bishop Matthew Hassan Kukah
