The Paramount Ruler of Ijebuland, the Awujale of Ijebuland, Oba Sikiru Adetona, on Thursday, said God spoke through President Bola Tinubu when he said ‘emi lokan‘ meaning ‘it’s my turn’ during the electioneering period.
Oba Adetona stated this during Tinubu’s visit to the palace on Thursday.
He noted that there is absolutely nothing one can do by himself except if God wants it for that person.
He said, “There is nothing one can do by himself except what God wants for that person.
“God spoke through you that it is your turn and may it not lead to death.”
‘Emi lo kan’ is a Yoruba phrase meaning, “It’s my turn”. It was first said by the then-presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, Bola Tinubu, in Ogun State, in the build-up to the primary election of the party.
Recall that the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) had on March 1 declared Bola Tinubu, the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), as the winner of the poll. Tinubu has since been inaugurated as the president of Nigeria.
The declaration of Tinubu as the winner of the election prompted Peter Obi, presidential candidate of the Labour Party (LP), and other political parties and their candidates to seek legal redress.
Obi and his LP are currently in court challenging the validity of the electoral process that resulted in Tinubu’s victory.
Meanwhile, Kanyi Daily earlier reported that President Bola Tinubu has said he invoked the spirit of freedom during his electioneering in Ogun State.
Tinubu stated this while speaking at the palace of Awujale and paramount ruler of Ijebuland, Oba Adetona, in Ijebu Ode on Thursday.
