The presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the 2023 general elections, Bola Tinubu, has said that Nigerians give off an impression of being in confusion about the state of the nation.


He expressed this on Wednesday in Abuja during the 70th birthday festivity of Bishop Matthew Hassan Kukah of the Catholic Diocese of Sokoto.

“I listened to the panelists, we appear to be in confusion about our nation,” the ex-Lagos State governor said. “We inherited speaking in tongues from the Bible, but our diversity is a promise for prosperity.”


Tinubu hailed him for his commitments to the development and growth of Nigeria, describing him as an incredible man who is enriched with resilient intellectual abilities.

In praising the priest for building an institution on his 70th birthday celebration anniversary, he charged the Sokoto Bishop to likewise build the nation.

The APC candidate, who promised to add to the fruition of the Kukah project, charged Nigerians to likewise contribute to the development of the nation.

He added, “You are building an institution in honour of your 70th birthday. I am 70 too. Bishop, you will build not just the institution but the greatness of a nation.


“It is on your shoulder; it is on mine, and we must build it together. I must, and I will contribute handsomely personally to build and see to the completion of that institution because it reflects something.”


On his part, Sokoto State Governor, Aminu Tambuwal, described Kukah as his undying affection for the country.


Tambuwal, who chaired Kukah’s 70th birthday celebration in Abuja, lauded Kukah for his deep confidence in the possibility of a new Nigeria.


He said in spite of the fact that Kukah’s criticism of the country’s bad governance has been controversial, he (Kukah) believed Nigeria could and would emerge from failed political leadership.


The occasion was attended by key political actors for the 2023 elections, including the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu; his running mate, Kashim Shettima; the presidential candidate of the Labor Party, Peter Obi and numerous others.
