The Oba of Benin, Ewuare II, has said that God ordained President Bola Tinubu to be Nigeria’s president, urging all Nigerians to support the administration as well as live in peace.

The revered monarch stated this on Sunday when he paid a courtesy visit to the Governor of Lagos State, Babajide Sanwo-Olu at Lagos House, Marina, the Lagos State Government said in a release on Monday.

He noted that the victory of Tinubu in the 2023 presidential poll and his emergence as the incumbent President of Nigeria showed God ordained him to rule the country, hence the need for all Nigerians to support him to achieve the greater Nigeria of everyone’s dreams.

“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,” the Oba of Benin was quoted as saying.

Congratulating Governor Sanwo-Olu on his reelection, the monarch commended the governor’s giant strides in Lagos and charged him not to rest on his oars to achieve greater heights in his second term in office.

The monarch who visited the J. Randle Centre for Yoruba Culture and History, Onikan, after the courtesy visit, with Governor Sanwo-Olu, Deputy Governor, Dr. Obafemi Hamzat, and other cabinet members, also commended Governor Sanwo-Olu’s commitment to the promotion of culture and tradition.

Speaking during the courtesy visit, Governor Sanwo-Olu assured that the state would continue to be home to everyone irrespective of ethnic, religious or political affiliations.

Governor Sanwo-Olu, who eulogised the Oba of Benin for distinguishing himself among the traditional rulers, said his protection of culture and promotion of traditional values have earned him maximum respect across the country.

Sanwo-Olu, while conveying the greetings of President Tinubu to the Oba, urged the traditional ruler to continue his support for the present Federal Government to ensure citizens benefit from dividends of democracy which he noted are becoming evident in the third quarter of the year with a rise in the country’s GDP.

“On behalf of Mr. President, we want to thank you for your fatherly role; for your prayers and best wishes to the government and I am sure he will not disappoint you.

“He will do everything possible to ensure that he delivers the real dividends of democracy that will help our country to reduce the poverty in the land, give us a new set of hope and redefine social economic development,”
the governor said.

Absolutely so. Naysayer, knockers and bellyachers are merely wasting their time.
