  1. Big dreamers, dream on. God keeps exposing the fraud in these so-called clergy - Kukah, sleepy-eye Oyedepo and fake Islamic clergy, Gumi.

  2. Your reunion with Obasanjo is not a guarantee of winning the 2019 Presidential election. Specifically, Obasanjo mentioned that you still need to clear yourself nationally and internationally. That carries a lot of weight. What you need to clear, you know and we know. So, we're waiting. As for being accepted by religious leaders, forget them, because, we know some of those in attendance as pastors of dollars. All along, they speak as if God prophesied through them, whereas, they speak of their own and belly.
