The presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu; his running mate, Kashim Shettima; the presidential candidate of the Labour Party, Peter Obi and many others attended Bishop Matthew Kukah’s 70th birthday celebration.

Sokoto State Governor, Aminu Tambuwal, who is chairing Kukah’s ongoing 70th birthday celebration in Abuja, described the clergyman as a man with an undying love for the country and commended him for his strong belief in the possibility of a new Nigeria.

Tambuwal said that although Kukah’s criticism of the the nation’s bad governance have been controversial, he (Kukah) believed Nigeria could and would come out of the doldrums of failed political leadership.

The governor, represented by a former Imo State governor and former Deputy Speaker of the House of Representatives, Rt. Hon. Emeka Ihedioha, said Kukah’s love for a United Nigeria had remained unsurpassed.

“His (Kukah’s) writings over the years have become controversial and have drawn the ire of powers that be, but what is not in doubt is his undying love for Nigeria and Nigerians, and his belief in the possibility of a new Nigeria where justice and equity reigns”, he said.

Tambuwal’s arrival was later announced at the point of filling this report.
