Pope Paul VI appointed Tuquib to be the Bishop of the Diocese of Pagadian on February 24, 1973. During his reign as Bishop of Pagadian, the Diocese of Pagadian took over the administration and control of the schools of the Missionary Society of St. Columban, including Saint Columban College. The transfer started what is now known as the Diocesan Schools Group of Pagadian, the network of sixteen schools under the control of the Bishop of Pagadian.
Eleven years later, Pope John Paul II appointed him as the Coadjutor Archbishop to Archbishop Patrick Cronin of the Archdiocese of Cagayan de Oro. Upon Cronin's retirement, Tuquib succeeded as Archbishop of Cagayan de Oro. On March 3, 2006, he retired and consequently became the Archbishop Emeritus.
