God ordained Tinubu to become President – Oba of Benin tells Nigerians


Oba of Benin, Oba N’Edo Uku Akpolokpolo Ewuare II, has said that God ordained Bola Ahmed Tinubu as Nigeria’s President.


Ewuare II said this while urging Nigerians to live in unity irrespective of differences.


He stated this when he paid a courtesy visit to the Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu at the Lagos House, Marina.


“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,” he said.


The Lagos Governor tweeted the visit afterwards, saying he was honoured by the visit by the Oba of Benin.


He said the monarch’s visit “reaffirms our commitment to cultural harmony and collaboration.”


The Oba urged Sanwo-Olu to do more in his second four years in office.
