“Only God Can Remove Tinubu from Power” – APC Group

…lambasts Catholic Church and their election report

A support group in the All Progressives Congress, the Confederation of All APC Support Groups, says only God can remove President Bola Tinubu from power.

According to the group, having been overwhelmingly voted in during the February 25 presidential poll, nobody can unseat Tinubu.

The group lambasted the Catholic Archbishop Emeritus of Abuja, His Eminence, Cardinal John Onaiyekan, for reportedly remarking that Tinubu “is not yet Nigeria’s President until the Presidential Election Petition Court says so.”

At a press conference in Kaduna on Sunday,  Director General, Confederation of All APC Support Groups, Muhammad Kialani, expressed disappointment in Onaiyekan for opposing Tinubu’s Presidency, despite being a Yoruba man as Tinubu.

The group, while calling for Onaiyekan’s arrest, told the cleric to step down from the pulpit and join politics.

Kailani said, “We woke up today and we saw on social media that those who are supposed to bring unity in diversity in this country, are the ones trying to bring war. They are the ones trying to bring crisis.

“We don’t expect Archbishop John Onaiyekan to say that Tinubu is not yet Nigeria’s President. He said the election is not yet over and that we don’t have a President until the court said so.

“We, the Confederation of All APC Support Groups nationwide, condemn this in totality. We are not happy. Nigerians are not happy.

“We thought this man is a Yoruba man and our President, Ahmed Bola Tinubu, is a Yoruba man but he is castigating him.  During the election, more than 80 per cent of the Yorubas didn’t vote for him, even the Afenifere.

“The like of Pastor Tunde Bakare, Chief  Bode George and the rest of them, they said that they don’t want him. We brought this President. Nobody can remove him. Only God can remove him. We have voted. Nigerians have spoken on the 25th of February, 2023.

“We are calling on all Nigerians not to support this move and we want him arrested because this will bring war.”

The group warned Onaiyekan not to lend himself to agents of destabilisation, saying it would not take such a move lightly.

They called on Onaiyekan “to come and join us in politics. Let him leave the pulpit. He should join us to see how we play politics in this country but not in his house where he is comfortable; where people are using him to destabilise us. We will not take it lightly. We are watching.”
