The North-Central Christian Coalition for Responsive and Accountable Governance (NCCCRA) has stated that the election of Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu as president-elect the platform of the All Progressive Congress (APC) is the best for Nigeria at the moment and best suited to deal with the complex issues bedevilling the country.

In a statement signed by its National Coordinator, Sir Festus Nyiwo, the Coalition mentioned that members of the group did not just lay their heads on the easy pillow of convenience as a basis for an outright rejection of the Muslim-Muslim ticket but consciously lifted the veil to see what lay underneath it.

It pointed out that the last presidential election was more about security, which suffered most in the Middle Belt region of the country and the corporate existence of Nigeria, than anything else, adding that if security was well taken care of, the private sector, including farming, would hardly need government interference.
to develop and grow; it could naturally assume a life of its own, attracting the
needed foreign investments.

The NCCCRA further stated that the president-elect was the better candidate out of the whole lot because of his demonstrable antecedents in areas of governance, security, and international peacekeeping efforts and sacrifices.

“For one, Tinubu defended democracy during the dark days of Abacha’s military dictatorship in the 1990s. “He substantially bankrolled NADECO, a pro-democracy movement that was at the forefront of democratization struggles in the 1990s, and insisted on the actualization of MKO’s June 12 mandate rather than serve in Abacha’s regime,” it said.

The Christian Coalition added that it mobilized massive support for Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu in the February 25 Nigeria presidential election in the North Central region based on the assured belief that the Christian community in Nigeria, particularly in the North Central region, will be well accommodated as per his manifesto and campaign promises to the electorate.

It, therefore, called on the president-elect to reciprocate the support given to him by appointing notable Christians from the North Central as the Chief of Staff and the Secretary to the Federal Government, among other appointments.

“Finally, we also believed in his demonstrable antecedents in governance over the years and his unique attributes to identify and place talents in offices for optimal productivity.” “And we believe that the offices of the Chief of Staff, the Secretary to the Federal Government, the Senate presidency, the Speaker of the House of Representatives, and other notable ministries, parastatals, or agencies will be a good place to start,” said the coalition.
