The Oba of Lagos, Riliwan Akiolu, has declared that President Bola Tinubu’s government was ordained by God.
This is even as the Lagos traditional ruler advised President Tinubu and his rivals in the 2023 presidential election, Atiku Abubakar, Peter Obi, and others, to come together and move Nigeria forward.
Speaking in London, Oba Akiolu said politicians should be more focused on the welfare of the people.
“Many things are happening to our country. Politicians don’t fight, they will settle later. All of them should come together and move Nigeria forward. The unemployed, let’s find jobs for them. Indiscipline and greed is (sic) our problem. We’re too far away from God. Any man who is contented, God will reward them,” the king said.
When asked if he meant that Tinubu, Atiku and Obi should come together, he replied, “They should come together and move Nigeria forward. The (current) leadership is from God.
“The present President, I had told him that God deliberately put him there. But whoever is at the top should be prayerful, be truthful and do what is expected.”
The Supreme Court had affirmed Tinubu’s election as president of Nigeria.
The apex court dismissed petitions seeking to disqualified Tinubu by Atiku and Obi for lack of merit.
