Lagos - Mr. Olufemi Ajadi Oguntoyinbo, a presidential aspirant for the 2023 general elections in Nigeria, has urged two leading contenders for the office, to honour the divine call upon his head.
This, he said they should do, by stepping down on their ambitions and backing his own presidential bid.
Ajadi who referred to former Vice President Alhaji Atiku Abubakar and All Progressives Congress (APC) leader, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, said it would be onerous on the two to place divine ordination above personal ambition, in the interest of peace and progress of the nation.
According to him, since God alone could tell the way out of the myriad of challenges confronting the nation, it is only the one with His divine backing that could provide solutions.

“Experience is good for public office, but it cannot supersede a divine will. It is God that knows the end of everything from the beginning. And Nigeria cannot make a mistake by backing anyone whom God has chosen.”
Ajadi reiterated the point that long before now, God had spoken clearly through different anointed evangelists, the mandate upon his head to lead Nigeria out of her problems, adding that that divine revelation took form in the course of the last EndSARS protests.
“I had held unto that prophecy for years, wondering how it could be fulfilled, but during the last protests, while I was asking God why Nigerians should be suffering when the country had been blessed, it was made clear to me, that the time to fulfil that prophecy had come.
“I know that whatever God says is what will happen, and every day, it becomes clearer to me what should be done for the country to achieve its true greatness.”
Ajadi added that in addition to being an entrepreneur, community leader and opinion leader, he is a youth-oriented president and that the mood of the nation supports a president with youth on his side.
He said this was because all the time the country had voted experience and age, only to see it backfire, because such voted people did not have the interest of the nation at heart.
Citing the current administration, he wondered why things were not working the way Nigerians had envisaged it, as many of them had banked on the years of experience of Buhari to bring about a better society, but that instead, things were getting harder daily.
