President Bola Tinubu, according to Adewale Giwa, Senior Pastor of the Awaiting The Second Coming Of Christ Ministry, is more intelligent than Rabiu Kwankwaso of the New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP), Atiku Abubakar of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), and Peter Obi of the Labour Party (LP) for the 2023 presidential race.
According to Pastor Giwa, Atiku, Obi, and Kwankwaso are making the wrong political decisions, which would prevent them from unseating Tinubu in 2027.
Pat Utomi, a political economist, verified that Atiku, Kwankwaso, and Obi had decided to create a strong political party that would depose Tinubu in 2027.
Pastor Giwa reacted by saying Tinubu may turn the tables on the opposition parties and make things difficult for them.
“They are making the wrong move at the wrong time,” he stated in an interview, Why did they not get together before the presidential election in 2023?
“You cannot wrestle power away from a ruling party when you don’t put your house in order. Were they sleeping and snoring before the 2023 election?
“I told one of them before the election that if he truly loved Nigeria, he would have supported a candidate of his party instead of defecting to another party. It took a perfect political storm to defeat former President Goodluck Jonathan in 2015. The opposition parties were united, and all of them put their interests aside and strongly supported whoever they presented for the poll.
“I don’t see them coming together to form a strong opposition party. President Tinubu is wiser than them. He is a veteran who knows how to play his game. If Tinubu decides to turn Nigeria around today, the opposition parties will be nowhere to be found.
“As I stated earlier, if President Tinubu makes Nigerians happy anytime, soon, the opposition parties will have nothing to complain about.”
Giwa stated, “The church is divided just as political parties are divided,” about the role of the church in preparing Nigerians for the 2027 election. There will never be a day when the church speaks with one voice.
