Oba Rilwan Akinolu, the crowned king of Lagos state has said that former President Olusegun Obasanjo sees himself as one who must at all times have a say in the leadership of the country. He added that Buhari’s victory at the just concluded poll without the support of the former president clearly shows that he is no more as powerful as he thinks.
The former police officer turned king made this known when the participants of the Senior Executive Course 41 of the National Institute of Policy and Strategic Studies (NIPSS), Kuru, visited him a courtesy visit in his palace in Lagos.
“I had said that Buhari would win even before the election; unfortunately ,the number one person creating problems in this country is former President Obasanjo.
“He arrogated to himself the powers of the Almighty Allah by saying it was the support he gave to Buhari that made him win the first term.
“Obasanjo said Buhari would not win the second term, but did Buhari not win? Did I not say Obasanjo will be disappointed by the time the results were announced?
“The president’s victory clearly shows that power belongs to God only and no man can decide who leads the country
