We Need More People Like Tinubu In Nigeria – Archbishop Atilade


President of the Christian Welfare Initiative, CWI, Archbishop Atilade, has described the national leader of the Action Congress of Nigeria, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu as a dogged fighter and a champion of good causes.

Archbishop Atilade said this while on a condolence visit to Tinubu over the death of his mother, Alhaja Abibat Asabi Mogaji.

“Tinubu is fighting for all Nigerians and we need more people like him in this country,” he said.

Leading a team consisting of clergies and members of the Christian Welfare Initiative, the Archbishop wondered aloud if Nigeria was cursed going by the level of poverty and government waste.

“Is Nigeria under a curse? No. But we need good leadership to deliver us”.

Identifying Nigerians who have the qualities required for good leadership of the country, Atilade singled out the likes of Bola Tinubu.

“You have people that can stand behind you at all times,” he assured Tinubu.

Archbishop Atilade described Alhaja Abibat Mogaji as a righteous woman who never discriminated against any religion or tribe.

Quoting from the Bible he said of Mogaji, “the memory of the righteous is everlasting”.

Atilade said the late Alhaja Mogaji was a mobilizer par 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 shouldered 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, as he congratulated Tinubu on having such an illustrious mother.


  1. Nawa o, there is nothing people can not do 4 money, even men of God. Tinubu that didn’t do anything as governor of Lagos for 8 years, and almost frustrated Fashola in his first term which he performed very well, is now a good leader and fighter for the people.

  2. U are very correct. If Tinubu is d best leader by his assessment then something is monumentally wrong. What denomination is he anyway

  3. Archbishop 4 d sake of God tell Tinubu truth 4 once,Tinubu ll not kill u whn u tel him d truth. Why must u b lying 2 dis old man dat wat everything of lagos state 2 b shear 2 him nd d members of iz family. Has a man of God tell dis man d truth so that God almighty ll b pls wit u.
