Tinubu’s victory not God’s will – Peter Obi

The presidential candidate of the Labour Party, LP, Peter Obi has said the victory of the President-elect, Bola Tinubu is not the will of God.

Obi said God’s wish was for the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, to conduct a credible, free and fair election.

Featuring on Arise Television’s Morning Show on Monday.

Asked if he would accept Tinubu’s victory as the wish of God as some religious leaders claimed, Obi said: “What they are actually preaching is the problem of Nigeria. The problem of Nigeria is accepting wrongdoing and what is unacceptable.

“That is using God’s name in vain. That is not what God is saying. God said do not use my name in vain.

“So, what they are saying is not God’s wish, it is not God’s plan for Nigeria.

“Pastors are preaching the problem of Nigeria; it’s not God’s wish for Nigeria. Is it God’s wish that we don’t have electricity, a mortality rate?

“We have clear laws about the conduct of the election, it’s not God’s wish that we do the wrong thing. We want God’s wish to be truly God’s wish.

“Is it God’s wish that we steal or conduct the wrong election?”

Following the conclusion of Saturday’s presidential election, Nigeria’s First Lady, Aisha Buhari, had described Tinubu’s victory as the will of God.

“Regardless of our interests and diversity, we should all accept it as the will of Almighty God; we wouldn’t have done it without his grace,” she said.
