The Oluwo of Iwo, Oba AbdulRasheed Akanbi, Telu I, has said that President Muhammodu Buhari would not only complete his first term in office but he will also secure the second term.
The monarch who made this known during an interdenominational prayer session organised for president’s health, said any sickness that will infect President Buhari should infect him rather.
Christians, Muslims and Traditional worshippers were all present at the prayer session which took place at Oluwo’s palace in Iwo on Thursday.
The President of Christian Association of Nigeria, Iwo chapter, Pastor Caleb Ayoola led the Christian followers in the prayer while the Iwo Chief Imam, Alhaji Abdulfatai Olododo take the turn of Muslim faith and the Traditionalist was led by Ojetunde Ajibowu.
The prayer session lasted for four hours as mammoth crowd gathered at the palace under the scorching sun to pray according to their religion for Nigeria leaders especially for President Buhari and governor Aregbesola.
According to Oluwo, the prayer session was organised to appreciate God for returning President Buhari back to the country after medical vacation in United Kingdom, just as he charged Nigerians to always pray for their leaders because they carry on their shoulders the destiny of the populace.
“If any one claimed he or she loves Nigeria, the love for the leaders can’t be sidelined. If you claim you love Nigeria and you don’t love the leaders, you have just told a lie.
“It is painful that those who launched that campaign of ‘Resume or Resign’ are not patriotic as they claimed. They politicise the campaign which shouldn’t be. Buhari is my son and I won’t be happy when people are wishing him dead”.
“If any civil servant or police officer fall sick will you advise them to resign?. Those who are are clamouring for Buhari’s resignation are not sane.
He said, “as I have prayed for Buhari today, new life has come for him. He must spend eight years in power regardless of opposition antics against him.
“Nigerian don’t love those that love them but they are passionate about those that hate them. All those who are wishing him dead and those who are clamouring for his resignation shall fall sick.
He also reiterated that, any sickness that will infect the president should infect him, any misfortune that will befall on him(PMB) should befall him.
Among those that grace the session is the representative of wife of the President, Aisha Buhari, Alhaja Halimot Alli, who is the wife to the Secretary of the Oyo State government, representative of Lagos State House of Assembly Speaker, Hon. Mudashiru Obasa, who was represented by a member of the assembly, Hon. Tunde Buraimoh.
