President Bola Tinubu and his opponents in the 2023 presidential contest, Atiku Abubakar and Peter Obi, among others, have been asked to unite and advance Nigeria by the Oba of Lagos, Riliwan Akiolu.
In an interview with our UK correspondent, Oba Akiolu stated that governments had to pay greater attention to the well-being of the populace.
“Our nation is going through a lot. Politicians never quarrel; they always come to an agreement. They should all work together to advance Nigeria. Let’s find work for the unemployed. Our issue is indifference and greed. Too much separates us from God. The king declared, “God will reward any man who is content.”
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.”
Tinubu’s electoral victory in the presidential election held on February 25 was validated by the Supreme Court in October, according to press reports.
The appeals filed by Atiku and Obi contesting Tinubu’s victory were denied, and the tribunal’s ruling was upheld by the supreme court.
