Tinubu: only unity, peace can make Nigeria great


    All Progressives Congress (APC) National Leader Asiwaju Bola Tinubu on Sunday said only unity can foster peace, national integration and stability in the country.

    He noted that the current turmoil in Nigeria is being aggravated by soci-economic and political challenges, which must be tackled by concerted efforts and unity of purpose.

    Tinubu, former governor of Lagos State, reflected on the state of the nation when he visited the Emir of Kano, Alhaji Aminu Ado-Bayero, in his palace.

    The eminent politician left Kaduna, capital of  Kaduna State, where he chaired the yearly ‘Arewa House’ Lecture, for Kano, where a colloquium is being organised today to mark his 69th birthday.

    He was accompanied by fomer APC Interim National Chairman Chief Bisi Akande, Chief Pius Akinyelure, former Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) Chairman Nuhu Ribadu, and his media adviser, Tunde Rahman.

    To enhance integration, he said Kano and Lagos states have roles to play because of their cosmopolitan and tolerant nature. He also acknowledged the role of traditional rulers in peace building process.

    Tinubu expressed optimism that the country can excel, if Nigerians unite and make a positive change, irrespective of their tribes, religions and political affiliation.
