The Oba of Lagos, Riliwan Akiolu, has urged the presidential candidates of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Atiku Abubakar and Labour Party’s Peter Obi, to unite and work with President Bola Tinubu to move Nigeria forward.
Akiolu made the call while saying that God was behind Tinubu’s emergence as president.
Speaking in London over the weekend, Oba Akiolu urged politicians to pay more attention to 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.
Referring to Tinubu, Atiku and Obi, Akiolu said: “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.”
