Following the announcement of Mohammadu Buhari as the winner of the 2019 presidential elections by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), mixed reactions have surfaced in the online community.
A popular man of God identified as Tony Rapu, recently took to his social media page in an Instagram post in which he shared his piece of mind concerning the win of Buhari’s re-election bid.
He started off by noting that Nigerians would either rejoice and jubilate or be frustrated over the outcome of the election results.
The cleric added that regardless of what the situation may be, citizens of the country should bear it in mind that the most high is always in control of whatever happens.
He said: "Today Nigerians will express either rejoicing and jubilation or frustration and disappointment over the election results. Either we heave a sigh of relief at the results or we are in despair over the outcome. Whatever the position you find yourself, we can rest in the fact that God is in control. The outcome of the elections did not surprise God. The results did not derail His sovereignty or reduce His power. Maybe it’s time to cut through all the noise of social media soothsayers and television analysis and remember that God is on His throne and that He rules in the affairs of men. Maybe it's time to channel our political energy into family, Church and community."
Rapu continued by reminding Christians of their responsibility to the kingdom of God and their nation. He prayed them to align their priorities towards seeking the righteousness of heaven.
