The incoming President, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, has received a call to establish a prosperous nation that caters for all Nigerians, regardless of their ethnic, religious, or political affiliations.
This was disclosed by the former President of Kenya, Uhuru Kenyatta, during his keynote address at the Inauguration lecture organised by the Presidential Transition Council (PTC) in Abuja on Saturday.
In his speech, titled “Deepening Democracy for Integration and Development,” Kenyatta attributed the leadership crisis in Africa to detrimental ethnic divisions, religious intolerance, and economic selfishness.
Recognising that elections can potentially create divisions among people, Kenyatta emphasised the crucial role of leadership in unifying the nation.
Kenyatta further urged Tinubu to surround himself with individuals who challenge his viewpoints and to extend his hand of fellowship to those who may hold grievances, in order to forge a more robust nation through collaboration.
