Seun Adeoye, a Pentecostal Bishop and Spokesman for the World Bishops Council in Africa, has stated that electing Asiwaju Bola Tinubu of the All Progressives Congress (APC) or Atiku Abubakar of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) as president would be a grave mistake.
In a statement issued on Friday, the clergyman and founder of Sufficient Grace and Truth Ministry stated that none of the above candidates has the divine grace to lead the country.
In a statement titled “When the Righteous Rule,” the cleric insisted that Peter Obi, the presidential candidate of the Labour Party (LP), is God’s choice for Nigeria.
Even if they try their hardest while in office, Atiku and Tinubu will fail miserably, according to the clergyman.
Even if you condemn me to death by guillotine, I always will speak out about what God told me. Nobody should be moved by the paid ‘janjaweed’ and the ‘jeunjeun’ crowds milling around those candidates or by their numerous supporters whose gods are their bellies. One thing is sure: God is not in their noises.
Although if by whatever means any of them get to the office, they will try to move this nation forward but they will fail because they will be occupying a seat not divinely prepared for any of them. And sadly they will sink and bury Nigeria.
When the Scriptures in Proverbs 14 verse 34 says “Righteousness Exulteth a Nation”; righteousness here means mercy, justice, and equity. And anywhere these are missing such a nation will definitely go down and down.
Am I Igbo man? No. But the cries of the downtrodden Igbo natives have reached the ears of God and if they are denied their right to govern Nigeria God will furiously fight for them in manners that will bring untold hardship and anguish upon this country.
Speaking further, the clergyman stated that while Obi’s presidency would be difficult at first, he would eventually deliver Nigeria from economic hardship and other problems plaguing the country because he has been divinely ordained by God.
Although, Peter Obi’s presidency will be very tough at the beginning but because he is in God’s agenda for Nigeria, divine assistance will come to him from above and this Peter will feed the Lord’s sheep and become a rock upon which the new Nigeria will be built. he added.
