Why Nigerians should pray for Tinubu – Anambra prophet
The Spiritual Head of Soul Revival Outreach, Nnewi, Anambra State, Prophet Iyke Uzukwu has called on Nigerians to pray for the President-elect, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu for completion of his tenure.
According to the Nation, the cleric made this call during an interactive session with journalists in Nnewi, Anambra State on Tuesday, disclosing that Tinubu would have a successful tenure.
He noted that the former Lagos State governor would not allow himself to be influenced like the outgoing President, Muhammadu Buhari who he said did not meet up with people’s demands.
While noting that the Elections Petition Tribuna would not be different from the February 25 general elections, he urged the presidential candidate of the People’s Democratic Party, Atiku Abubakar and his Labour Party, counterpart, Peter Obi to forget about their cases at the election tribunal.
The clergy man said, “Prayers should be made for the president-elect to end his tenure alive. He would be a successful president but unfortunately, there is this cloud of blood hanging on his government.
“The implication of this is that a whole lot of politicians would be sacrificed for the success of his government.”
Uzukwu called on Tinubu not to remove fuel subsidy until the nation’s refineries were repaired and functional, saying that premature removal would cause both inflation and crisis in the country.
The prophet implored the Western countries to take action on all Nigerians who have looted the nation’s economy, at the same time help the country to return the stolen funds home.
“We keep hearing of Abacha loot all the time, but it is an open secret that it is not only Abacha’s administration that looted the treasury of the nation. Why is the international community silent on the loots perpetrated by other administrations?” he stressed.
The cleric then criticized the President Buhari’s purported intention to spend his retirement in Niger Republic.
He also bemoaned Buhari’s inability to fix the nation’s refineries in eight years contrary to his campaign promise to the nation.
Uzukwu ssid, “President Buhari has never hidden his intention to run away from Nigeria after his tenure, as well as extending NNPC pipelines to Niger Republic and tarring roads linking Nigeria to Niger when many roads that would have alleviated Nigerian sufferings are left untouched.
“He failed to fix the refineries in eight years contrary to his earlier promise to the nation. N2.4b is said to be missing in the nation’s cover at the moment. This is fast becoming President Buhari’s signature tune.
“This has always been Buhari’s exit plan and a major reason he didn’t do well as a president.”
