The inauguration of Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu as president of Nigeria has been referred to by the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) as a new chapter for the nation.
In a statement released yesterday, Archbishop Daniel Okoh, president of CAN, urged the incoming administration to lead the nation toward constructive transformation and advancement.
He considers Tinubu’s inauguration to be an important turning point in Nigerian history.
The CAN president urged all Nigerians to assist the incoming administration in overcoming the difficulties the country is now facing: “On behalf of the Christian Association of Nigeria, CAN, I would like to offer Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu our heartfelt greetings as he takes office today (yesterday).
“This is an important time for Nigeria, and we wish President Tinubu well as he assumes the duties of guiding our magnificent country.
“Nigeria is dealing with a lot of issues that call for strong and able leadership. There is obviously considerable work to be done to guarantee that Nigeria can realize its full potential, from security issues to economic difficulties.
“We implore President Tinubu to give these problems top priority and to work assiduously to identify long-term fixes that would enhance the standard of living for Nigerians.
Nigerians must unite as a nation with a spirit of togetherness and a strong sense of accommodation as we tackle our shared issues in order to build a formidable force.
In order to do this, we are certain that Nigeria can overcome all challenges and emerge stronger than before as His Excellency, President Bola Ahmed Tinubu, actively engages all Nigerians regardless of their political, ethnic, and religious leanings.
We congratulate President Tinubu once more and wish him well as he undertakes the difficult job of leading Nigeria at this point in our country’s history.
