“Obi have to be president of Nigeria, that we’re positive of. They will solely delay it, however even whether it is in the future to the tip of the tenure, he’ll retrieve his mandate. My solely worry is that when he (Obi) will change the presidential election timetable in Nigeria like he did in Anambra, INEC will now tax Nigerians twice to conduct presidential election individually after which others too.”

“They introduced a winner of an election, and there was no jubilation anyplace. We’re assured that God can do all issues, and He’ll use the judges to do it, and you will note the true jubilation the day they may announce Peter Obi winner.”
