We’re Praying For You To Get APC Ticket – Oba Of Benin Tells Tinubu


The Oba of Benin, Omo N’Oba N’Edo Uku Akpolokpolo, Oba Ewuare II, has assured the National Leader of the governing All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, that he and all the people of Benin Kingdom will continue to pray for him to pick APC’s ticket and win the presidential election.

The first-class monarch gave the assurance on Saturday evening in his palace while receiving Tinubu and members of his team.

A former National Chairman of APC, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole; the governorship candidate of the party during the September 19, 2020 poll Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu; and a former Deputy Governor, Chief Pius Odubu; among other chieftains of APC were also at the palace to welcome the presidential aspirant.

Oba of Benin said: “Your (Tinubu’s) remarks are like preaching to the converted or the Pope. The Benin throne is non-partisan; we are interested in who becomes president of Nigeria. Hence, the throne prays for good leadership.

“We are praying for you (Tinubu). If you are eventually given the ticket (of APC) and become president of the country, do the things that will make you sit at the right hand of God. Do not forget those of us that are praying for you.”

Tinubu said he has the capacity and experience to govern Nigeria.

According to him: “I supported and worked hard for Buhari to become President. I am a very competent individual. I served in Mobil as the Auditor-General and the Treasurer. I have helped to build great institutions and I have been Governor of Lagos State two times.
