The Bishop of Sokoto Diocese who also doubles as the Convener, National Peace Committee, Bishop Matthew Kukah had revealed the identity of the 2023 presidential candidate whom he thought should be the next president president of Nigeria. He was on Politics Today aired on Channels Television where he gave his thought on the question of "who should be Nigeria's next president" as posed by the anchor of the programme.
Asked who should be the next president of Nigeria, he stated that Nigeria has been soiled with corruption in response to dollar rains during the parties presidential primaries.
Sensed that Bishop Kukah was begging the question, Seun Okinbaloye repeated the question again after a break and then his reply came: "What I used to tell people is that a wedding is not a marriage. A marriage is different. The wedding is just a mere ceremony. The problem is that all these people running around and promising us paradise. The promises of a presidential candidate are not the same as the promises of the president and that is why it is important when people make a claim, you should seek to verify, and we have the opportunity to verify because luckily for us, most of those who are contesting for the presidency have had an opportunity to govern.
He continued: "So, we should be looking at those track records and ask ourselves, what are the credible things we can take out. What do we see in terms of how these candidates understand the structural deficiencies of this country, and whether that have the capacity to really bring us all together. The reality is that luckily for us Asiwaju Tinubu, Atiku Abubakar, Peter Obi. All of them have had opportunities to be at the helmets of affairs in Nigeria. Let's use their track records to interrogate them."
