2023: No tribe or religion can monopolize the leadership of Nigeria – Tambuwal
Governor Aminu Tambuwal of Sokoto State has said that no group of people of a particular tribe or religion can claim control of the Nigerian rulers.
He said so on Friday when he received the national president of the Christian Association of Nigeria, CAN, Rev. Ayokunle Samson Olasupo, in Sokoto state.
The governor said that no one can arrogate to himself the leadership of Nigeria to the exclusion of the other peoples of the country.
Tambuwal said: “The country’s leadership is mutually complementary as Nigeria belongs to every Nigerian, and no one will send anyone out of the country, hence the need to stay together for the betterment of the country.
âThe kind of leadership the country needs is one that understands diversity issues and is inclusive in its approach to governance, without tribal or religious sentiments.
âIslam and Christianity coexisted even before the country’s union existed. Those who know the history have said that Christianity and Islam belong to the same root. Jerusalem and Damascus are examples of places where the two religions are practiced side by side. “
Naija News reports that as the 2023 general election approaches, different groups have called for the presidency to be transferred to a particular region of the country.
North and south are currently scrambling to find out who will succeed President Muhammadu Buhari.
