The Oba of Lagos, Rilwan Akiolu, has advised president Mohammadu Buhari not to allow the former president, Chief Olusegun Obasanjo, to escape justice if he emerges winner of the 2019 general election.
According to Akiolu, he urged Buhari to close the borders through which Obasanjo will escape from.
He said “The moment he wins the election, he should close the border so that Obasanjo won’t escape,”the Oba said.
“Obasanjo should change his ways. An adage says that a deity that we try every possible thing to put in a place of honour that defies all such gestures would expose itself to ridicule at the end of the day.”
However, the Oba also advised the governor of Lagos state, Akinwunmi Ambode over his failure to win the primaries, urged him to leave everything in the hands of God.
“No evil will befall him and God still has great plans for him (Ambode). When the breeze blows, we will all see what the chicken is hiding underneath.
“The truth is that if Bola Ahmed Tinubu is angry, he’s justified. No evil will befall the three of them. They know my stance on the issue and it’s not a secret.
“Better people should come into politics, because majority of them there are liars and that is the truth. As time goes on, we will continue to de-emphasise the import of money in our election.
“On the other hand, concerning Ambode, if you have charm but you don’t have the antidote or another charm that can counter it, then you don’t have anything. I won’t say more than that. May God help all of us.
Akiolu, encouraged Ambode to accept the outcome of whatever that must have happened in the last the last APC primaries and support the party come 2019.
