The Presidential standard-bearer of All Progressive Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu has stated that the physical appearance of the Bishop of the Catholic Diocese of Sokoto State, Rev Fr Matthew Hassan Kukah, can’t limit his achievements in life.

Tinubu stated this at an event in Abuja in celebration of the 70th birthday of the Bishop.

Tinubu noted that speaking in tongues was inherited in the Bible but, diversity is the drive for prosperity.

In his words, “You are a short man, but I know one thing, no matter how short you are, when you get out, you will see the sky,”

“Though tongue and tribe may differ but in brotherhood we stand.”

“We inherited speaking in tongues from the Bible but, our diversity is a promise for prosperity.”

“He (Kukah) has built an Institution on the honour of your 70th birthday, I am 70 too, I am just months older than you are,”

Tinubu thereby appealed to the Bishop to join hands with him for the greatness of Nigeria.

“But Bishop, you will help build not Institution this time but, the greatness of a nation,”

“It’s on your shoulder, it’s on mine and we must build it together.” He said
