  1. The statement credited to the Emir of Daura Alhaji Dr. Umar about who should succeed President Buhari is highly spiritual and should be taken seriously by the people of Nigeria. I once wrote an article claiming that there was no need for Nigerians to be scouting around for PMB's replacement. God has made a suitable Nigerian Professor Osinbajo to take over from PMB. Devil is a lier and it influence in Nigeria will end very soon. The truth shall prevail. God will restore his will on Nigeria and a right choice will emerge. People of Nigeria should continue to pray for wisdom of choice to emerge. Professor Osinbajo will bring peace, progress and tranquility to the country. Osinbajo is free of tribal sentiment and he will surely bring about the much desired unity to the country. Insecurity that has plague the country will end and peace will reign supreme in the country. Any Spiritualist who is truly active in prayers and supplications should know that Professor Osinbajo is the rightful to lead Nigeria to the greater height among the comity of nations. Nigerians should rally round Osinbajo, not to bother looking elsewhere for a replacement for Nigeria. He has the fear of God and ready to use the experience gained as a Vice President to PMB. I openly challenge who has the experience that Osinbajo have to lead Nigeria. Barring tribal sentiment, nepotism and religious affiliation, Professor Osinbajo has the qualifications and experience to lead Nigeria successfully to the promise land.
