"And it is important for me to mention to members of the church because another time is here now. You better ask counsel of the priest before you torment your life by yourself.
“What office will you win election to that I will now need you? No. My eternal helper is up there, and they know if I have ever asked a thing of anyone. Allow God to lead you. Don’t let greed and avarice lead you.
“Don’t get me wrong, God can pick a president from this church. That President could even be a female.”
2023: Powerful name mentioned after Buhari spoke on his successor
Meanwhile, the leader of Arewa in the south, Alhaji Musa Saidu, had called on President Muhammadu Buhari to support the All Progressives Congress (APC)'s national leader, Asiwaju Ahmed Bola Tinubu, to succeed him in 2023.
Saidu noted that it was time for President Buhari to pay back for the massive support he got from the former Lagos governor in the 2015 and 2019 presidential elections.
The northern group's leader recalled that in the political history of Nigeria, 2015 was the first time southwest politicians will throw their weight behind a northern candidate.
