Billionaire businessman, Prince Arthur Eze, on Sunday, commended President Bola Tinubu for what he described as fairness in his recent appointments of ministers and heads of agencies.
He also said the President should be supported to succeed.
Nigerians have been divided over the recent appointments made by Tinubu to Ministries, Departments and Agencies of government.
While some have accused him of lopsidedness in the appointments in favour of the Yoruba, others said other regions were not carried along.
But Eze, who spoke at the Holy Mass to mark the 65th Birthday of Rev Fr Patrick Alumuku at St Louis Catholic Church, EFAB Global Estate, Mbora, Abuja, said Tinubu’s recent appointments had shown that he is the ideal President for Nigeria.
“The President has been fair in his appointments to the three major regions; the East, West and North. Nigerians should support the President as he continues his transformational agenda”, he said.
Eze, who described Alumuku as a good man, recalled that he met him through the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Senator George Akume.
Alumuku, while speaking with journalists, said he had to thank God for his love and kindness, which he has shown in many ways in his 65 years.
He said, “I realise that every day we live in God’s presence, and we need to thank him, especially at a moment like this, we give thanks to God. I want to use this opportunity to say to everyone that every birthday is a major event in our life to thank God.
“Indeed, every day is important to thank, so we cannot live without God’s presence before use; we need to be consciously and continuously aware of God’s presence and be grateful to him for what he has done in our lives.”
The Vice Chairman, Parish Pastoral Council of the Church, Sir Vincent Ukaoma, in his address, described Fr Alumuku as a man of many paths.
“We, the nuclear family of Father Patrick Alumuku would like him to live and enjoy this fast-approaching stage of his life gracefully. After labouring so much in God’s vineyard for more than 40 years as a priest in Makurdi, in Vatican City and now in Abuja, it will be fitting to slow down.
“We, the parishioners of St Louis Pastoral Centre, consider ourselves so blessed to have Father Patrick Alumuku as our first Parish Priest. Within a period of three years, through his subtle pushing, our community has been positively transformed progressively, spiritually and structurally,” he said.
