The clergyman described Mr. Tinubu as a good leader.
The President of Christian Welfare Association, CWA, Magnus Atilade, has described the former Governor of Lagos State, Bola Tinubu, as a dogged fighter and a champion of good causes.
“Tinubu is fighting for all Nigerians and we need more people like him in this country,” he declared.
The Archbishop made this statement while on a condolence visit to Mr. Tinubu over the death of his mother, Abibat Mogaji.
Leading a team, consisting of clergies and members of the CWA, the Archbishop decried the woeful situation Nigeria faces.
“Is Nigeria under a curse? No. But we need good leadership to deliver us,” he said.
He then went on to identify the likes of Mr. Tinubu as having the qualities required for good leadership of the country.
“You have people that can stand behind you at all times,” he told Mr. Tinubu.
Mr. Atilade described the late Abibatu Mogaji as a righteous woman, who never discriminated against any religion or tribe.
Quoting from the Bible, he said, “The memory of the righteous is everlasting.”
He also said the late Mogaji was a mobilizer per excellence, one who touched the lives of many people and played a pivotal role in what became the successful campaign of the Primary Health Program in Nigeria today.
“Mama had a heart of passion and compassion. She showed burden for others and showed kindness in attitude, words and deeds. Alhaja Abibat was her brother’s and sister’s keeper and a staunch supporter of what was just,” he said.
He also said that while the late Ms. Mogaji was a disciplinarian, she treated everyone as family. He congratulated Mr. Tinubu on having such an illustrious mother.
