Cleric urges Nigerians to accept Tinubu’s presidency as divine order

The Chief Shepherd of The Harvest Centre Mission, Prophet Wale Ojo-David, says Tinubu’s emergence as the President-elect is divine and urges Nigerians to accept it in good faith.

The Ikorodu-Lagos based prophet, who spoke against the backdrop of the legitimacy crisis trailing Tinubu’s victory, told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Lagos that God instituted his leadership to take Nigeria and Africa out of the woods.

NAN reports that Ojo-David, known for his empirical prophecies, had in 2021 prophesied that Sen. Bola Ahmed-Tinubu would be the next president of Nigeria.

Tinubu was declared winner of the Feb. 25, 2023 Presidential election by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC). However, the victory is being contested by other candidates in court.

Ojo-David, who decried the tension in the land because of the ongoing litigations against the president-elect, said that Nigerians should eschew bitterness and lay credence to the legitimacy of the mandate on Tinubu.

The spiritual leader of the Harvest Centre Mission said that part of the divine mandate of the president-elect was to render cohesive leadership to Nigeria and Africa for the continent’s development and liberation.

According to him, God does not choose leaders based on man’s parameters but on variables that suit His purpose at every given time.

“Leaders are chosen by God; it behoves us to harness the grace of God readily available to us as people of God to envelope our leaders in prayer for them not to derail from God’s mandate to them.

“Our national interest and well-being should be above sectional, religious and personal interest which seems to be playing out now while disunity, hate and sensational talks tends to crack our social fabrics.

“Selfishness, bitterness and distrust is unholy and not part of Godliness that we should crave for in our relationship with others,” he said.

He frowned at misleading public messages from some clerics and asked clerics to seek the Holy Spirit’s direction especially on matters of public interest before they make pronouncements in order not to overheat the polity.
