“This no time for fake prophesies. We have undergone that, and we saw that they all failed. ‘My ways are not your ways, and your ways are not my ways’; that’s what God said in the bible.
“Today, the actualisation of Asiwaju Tinubu is a reward of goodwill, a reward of his political sagacity, a reward of consulting many political gladiators in the South and North.
