Reactions As Oba Of Benin Says God Ordained President Tinubu

(AFRICAN EXAMINER) – The statement credited to the  Oba of Benin, Omo N’ Oba N’ Edo, Uku Akpolokpolo, Ewuare II, that God ordained President Tinubu to lead Nigeria. 

The African Examiner writes that the Oba of Benin disclosed this when he paid a visit to Lagos State governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu on Sunday as he tasked Nigerians to support the administration as well as live in peace.

 The traditional ruler said, “God has ordained that Tinubu would become President of Nigeria. We are all one. I am for peace and tranquility. We must live together as one. Nigeria is big. We must iron out our differences and learn to live together as one, big family.”

Sanwo-Olu while conveying the greetings of President Bola Tinubu to the Oba of Benin, tasked the monarch to continue his support for the government so that citizens benefit from dividends of democracy which according to him are becoming evident.

He said: “On behalf of Mr. President, we want to thank you for your fatherly role; for your prayers and best wishes to the government and I am sure he will not disappoint you.

“He will do everything possible to ensure that he delivers the real dividends of democracy that will help our country to reduce the poverty in the land, give us a new set of hope and redefine social economic development.”

This development has sparked social media reactions as some netizens took to the micro blogging platform suggesting that the monarch has been bribed. The African Examiner gathers a few of their thoughts as seen in X.

I trust my clan when it comes to politics, WE GO DENY YOU FLAT. We don’t need anything from Tinubu.”
