Mr Kukah expressed his Dioceses’ happiness for been selected to host the conference, adding that the presence of the clerics would bring lots of blessings to the Diocese.

He described the opportunity as a rare privilege, as each Diocese only has one chance of hosting the Catholic Bishops in 56 years.

Mr Kukah added that the gathering would serve as an opportunity to correct negative impressions about Sokoto and the North “by those who are not in tune with the reality.”
