God Destined Us To Live As One Nigeria ⁠— Tinubu



Bola Tinubu

National Leader of All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Tinubu says Nigerians should embrace their diversity because their coexistence was destined by God.

He said the various ethnic entities that make up the nation were better together rather than separated.

The former Lagos State Governor stated this Saturday while fielding questions from journalists in Sokoto on the sidelines of his condolence visit to former governor of the state, Senator Aliyu Wamakko, who lost his daughter during childbirth.

He said that as a pan Nigerian he believed in the indivisibility of the country.

However, Tinubu urged an end to discrimination, saying it negatively impacts the collective aspirations of Nigerians.

“Nobody chooses which tribe he or she will come from not to talk of the family. It is the wish of God that we all found ourselves where we are today. I believe if we all live as one, we can always come together to develop our nation. I am a Yoruba man, I didn’t make myself a Yoruba, same thing goes to Ibo, Hausa or Fulani, so we must be united,” he stated.

On his mission at Wamakko’s residence, he commiserated with the senator on his loss.

Tinubu said, “We are here to thank God for you. In everything, He has taught us to be grateful and faithful.

“Whatever He allows to happen to us, we must thank Him. Bereavement is not easy, particularly of a daughter, but that is the way God wants it. If we lament more than this we will be sinning, hence, we must accept it as an inevitable act of God.

“God knows what to do and we should accept it faithfully. We have been asked to faithfully accept all what He ordains, in time of sorrow and happiness.”

He prayed for long life for the senator and members of his household.
