Don’t Turn The Current Challenges We Are Facing Into Ethnic, Tribal and Religious Crisis – Bola Tinubu

National Leader of the All Progressives Congress, Bola Tinubu has begged Nigerians not to see the current challenges as ethnic, tribal or religious.

During the eight-day Fidau prayers for the late first civilian governor of the state Alhaji Lateef Kayode Jakande, Tinubu said that the next war that will happen in the country will submerge entire West Africa and there won’t be enough space to accommodate Nigerians as refugees.

Tinubu said; 

“I appeal today to all of us not to turn whatever challenges we are facing right now to ethnic, tribal and religious crisis. 

“Nigeria is currently facing crises, crisis of insurgency, of banditry and all aspects of insecurity. But God Almighty who made this country one of the largest and most resourceful countries will guide and protect us.

“If there is war in Nigeria, it will submerge the entire West Africa and there won’t be enough space to accommodate us as refugees. Those who have seen the effects of war, the consequences of tribal conflict, of religious conflict will never want it for Nigeria.”

According to him, the late Jakande inspired his journey into politics. He said;

“This demise is not Pa Jakande’s loss, it’s our loss. We cannot be alive forever. There is always a day we would depart and render accounts of our deeds to Allah. Today is the 8th day and we are all assembled to pray for Alhaji Lateef Jakande.

“I’m a lucky one; this is the house where I began my political journey in life. Baba Jakande said go on, contest for Senate, we need many like you in politics. The rest is history.

“To our junior brothers and sisters, may God bless you and set you on the right path to success. Jakande has many children, not just you alone. We are many. We truly are his children.”
