Just as Nigeria President elect, Senator Bola Ahmed Tinubu, is gearing up for his 71st birthday celebration on Wednesday, March 29, 2023, a Roman Catholic priest, Rev. Fr. Kelvin Ugwu has taken a deep swipe at the former Governor of Lagos State for some personal reasons.
Recall that lots of controversies have continued to surround somethings about Tinubu, which includes his age, the school he attended, and lots more, including the recently concluded Presidential election in Nigeria, all of which constitute the basis for Fr. Kelvin Ugwu’s outburst against the President elect.
According to the man of God, Tinubu has actually dedicated his 71st birthday to prayers, most especially as he prepares to assume the mantle of leadership as the President of the country very soon, and that alone did not go down well with Fr. Kelvin. He wondered why a man he alleged to have stole the people’s mandate, forged certificates, faked his age, indulged in ethnic profiling and suppressed voters during the election, has the audacity to call for prayers for him to succeed amidst the aforementioned.

He equally frowned at the manner which we practice our own religion in this part of the world, describing it as being shameful. Especially the way call God’s name disrespectfully, that’s after indulging in some abominable acts before same God we call his name carelessly. Equally, he made it clear that payers is neither the problem of Nigeria nor Africa as we already have said enough prayers in this regard. The angry Roman Catholic priest stated that lack of character is our main problem in this part of the world, hence the reason we do not care about how we drag God into issues disrespectfully, as though God is our mate.
Meanwhile, this is not the first time the Reverend has fearlessly spoken out against issues within the Nigerian society, most especially about the political class/elites in the country. Meanwhile, he has continued to speak out in recent times, basically with regards to the outcome of the 2023 Presidential election in Nigeria, of which he’s not happy with the outcome of that election.
