Ahead of the 2023 general elections, the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, Bola Tinubu, has said that Nigerians appear to be in confusion about the state of their country.
He spoke on Wednesday in Abuja at the 70th birthday celebration 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.
“We inherited speaking in tongues from the Bible but our diversity is a promise for prosperity,” Tinubu said.
The former Lagos State governor commended Kukah for his contributions to the growth and development of Nigeria.
According to him, the Catholic cleric is a great man who is endowed with resilient intellectual abilities.
He equally lauded Kukah for building an institution on his 70th birthday anniversary and charged him to also build the nation.
He said, “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.”
