A support group in the All Progressives Congress, The Confederation of All APC Support Groups, on Sunday, said only God can unseat President Bola Tinubu as Nigeria’s president.
The group said this during a press conference in Kaduna.
The press briefing was organised in response to the criticism of the last presidential election by the Catholic Archbishop Emeritus of Abuja, His Eminence, Cardinal John Onaiyekan.
Director-General of the group, Muhammad Kialani noted that Onaiyekan was reported to have said that President Tinubu is not yet Nigeria’s president until The Presidential Election Petition Tribunal say so.
For this, Kailani demanded the arrest of the cleric, wondering why Onayekan who should be preaching love and peace, suddenly turned to “an agent to distabilise his dear country, Nigeria.”
Punch has it that Kailani called on Nigerians to ignore the Christian leader.
He said: “We woke up today and we saw on social media that those who are supposed to bring unity in diversity in this country are the ones trying to bring war. They are the ones trying to bring crisis.
“We don’t expect Archbishop John Onaiyekan to say that Tinubu is not yet Nigeria’s president. He said the election is not yet over and that we don’t have a president untill the court said so.
“We, The Confederation of All APC Support Group nationwide, condemned this in totality. We are not happy. Nigerians are not happy.
“We thought this man is a Yoruba man and our President, Ahmed Bola Tinubu, is a Yoruba man but he is castigating him. During the election, more than 80 per cent of the Yorubas didn’t vote for him, even the Afenifere.
“The likes of Pastor Tunde Bakare, Chief Bode George and the rest of them. They said that they don’t want him. We brought this president.
“Nobody can remove him. Only God can remove him. We have voted. Nigerians have spoken on the 25th of February, 2023.
“We are calling on all Nigerians not to support this move.
“Finally, we calling Archbishop John Onaiyekan to come and join us in politics. Let him leave the pulpit there. He should join us to see how we play politics in this country but not in his house where he is being comfortable and where people are using him to distabilise us. We will not take it lightly. We are watching.”
