Healing and Uniting the Country
Pastor Chris Okafor emphasizes the need for President Bola Tinubu to prioritize healing and uniting the nation. While acknowledging Tinubu’s impressive performance since assuming office, Okafor believes that addressing the wounds and divisions caused by the perceived injustice during the presidential election, particularly in relation to the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), is crucial for gaining widespread support from Nigerians.
Embracing the Igbos and Releasing Nnamdi Kanu
Okafor suggests that President Tinubu should open his doors to the Igbo community and order the immediate release of Nnamdi Kanu, the pro-Biafra activist. By extending a welcoming hand to the Igbos and demonstrating a commitment to justice and unity, Tinubu can alleviate the pain and grievances felt by the Igbo population, potentially leading to a reconsideration of their stance towards his leadership.
Prominent Roles for the Igbos in Government
To foster a sense of inclusivity and ensure a truly united Nigeria, Okafor urges President Tinubu to involve the Igbo community prominently in his government. By providing the Igbos with significant representation and a sense of belonging, Tinubu can address their concerns and create an environment where they feel valued and heard. Okafor believes that such measures will alleviate the pain felt by the Igbos and generate a willingness to give Tinubu the benefit of the doubt.
