Bishop Jonas Katung, Founder and General overseer of The Living Stone Church Assembly has called on Christians in the North and other part of the country to give President elect, Bola Ahmed Tinubu the needed support to succeed in his administration as he prepares to take oath of office come May 29th, 2023.


Bishop Katung  who is one of the top leaders of Bishops in the North, in an interview with newsmen in Jos, said he has a strong conviction that given the opportunity, Bola Ahmed Tinubu would provide the right leadership for Nigerians.


The cleric acknowledged that Tinubu possessed wealth of experience in politics and economic matters that should take Nigeria out of the woods.


”Remember, during the heat of political campaigns across the country for the 2023 general elections, Northern Bishops met Tinubu in Abuja to ask him questions and he was able to give us serious answers on the challenges the Christians are facing.


“He told us what he is going to do as President to resolve the problems if elected into power by the people of Nigeria. We have confidence and hope that he is going to be a good President with listening ears.”


According to Bishop Katung, if Tinubu as a Lagos State Governor for eight years, brought people from different backgrounds and faith into his cabinet and he succeeded leaving behind a legacy that subsequent Lagos governors are building upon it, he has a conviction that in the next four years, Tinubu achievements will surpass what Nigeria’s past leaders have achieved.


“Tinubu is a man with large heart that will give Nigerians sense of belonging within a short period of time after taking over power.”


The clergyman also charged the incoming president  to urgently correct the imbalance in the structure and composition in the military, the Police, para military forces and the federal civil service to give all segments of Nigeria a sense of belonging.


He added that going by the Nigeria political history, no President has ever emerged through democratic elections in the polity till date, that some Nigerians have not questioned the outcomes of the polls that brought him to power, stressing that the past Nigeria leaders even the outgoing President Mohammadu Buhari had that experience.


He called on Atiku Abubakar and Peter Obi to let Tinubu provide leadership for Nigeria in the next four years and challenge him again at the polls in 2027 if they so desire.


Bishop Katung charged Tinubu to pick right people into his cabinet if he wants to succeed in his administration.


According to him “Asiwaju needs to develop political will to address the challenges facing the country once and for all.”
