The Spiritual Director of Adoration Ministry Enugu (AMEN), Reverend Father Ejike Mbaka has said that the Presidential candidate of APC Asiwaju Ahmed Bola Tinubu will be sworned in by May 29 if it is the will of God.
Fr Mbaka said this in a post on his Facebook page on Sunday during his sermon of the Catholic mothering Sunday service.
Recall that there has been confusion and uncertainty regarding the swearing in of Tinubu on May 29th 2023 as his declaration as Nigeria’s President-elect is being challenged in court by the Presidential candidate of Labour Party Peter Obi and Atiku Abubarka of the PDP.
Many have also suggested an interim government which will hold power until the final judgement of the Appeal court which has equally been condemned by Nigerian government.
Reacting, Mbaka admonished his church members to hope in God adding that if it is the will of God, Tinubu will be sworn in on May 29.
Mbaka stated that Nigerians came out in their numbers to cast their votes in the February 25 presidential election, adding that even though cases of ballot box snatching and electoral malpractices were witnessed in the election, he appreciated God for seeing the country through the poll.
Mbaka, therefore, urged all Nigerians to pray for the nation, because he sees a New Nigeria coming where every citizen will rejoice and be blessed.
He wrote: “I want to make a recall on the just concluded presidential election. We have seen how the Nigerians turned out in their numbers to cast their votes.
“We have also seen how some ballot boxes were stolen in some polling units. Nevertheless, we appreciate God for thus far he has brought us.
“On this note, If It Is The Will Of God For Ahmed Bola Tinubu To Become Our President, Let It Be So.”Mbaka added: “I want to urge us all to pray for our nation Nigeria. Because i see a New Nigeria coming. And every inhabitant will rejoice and be blessed”
