Former minister of Aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode, has reacted to the submission of Bishop Emeritus of the Archdiocese of Abuja, Cardinal John Onaiyekan where he expressed hope that he would see the anticipated new Nigeria before he dies.
Information Nigeria had reported Onaiyekan said that it does not make sense to swear-in people when there are issues to be settled in court.
The 80-year-old clergy who expressed sadness over the inability of the election tribunal to decide on the petitions filed by opposition parties before the May 29 handover, said God knows those that rigged the election.
However in Twitter reaction to Onaiyekan’s stance, Fani-Kayode said that “nobody can stop a moving train,” noting that Bola Ahmed Tinubu’s emergence as president-elect “is the doing of the Lord and it is marvellous in our sight.”
His words: “To Cardinal John Onaiyekan and those that share his views that the swearing in of our President-elect should be postponed until after the Election Tribunal has delivered its judgement, I say the following.
“The Nigerian people have spoken and the Deep State conspiracy to stop Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu from becoming President failed long ago.
“We are well past that stage and you cannot stop a moving train. Those that have hardened their hearts and that have refused to accept God’s will and admonition to let Asiwaju and the Nigerian people go shall, like Pharaoh, perish before our very eyes.
“Those that are filled with bitterness, hate, envy, fury and rage and that seek to pursue us into the Red Sea as we make our way to the Promise Land shall be drowned by it.
“Whether they like it or not, God-willing, the President-elect SHALL be sworn in on May 29th and those that want him dead or wish him ill shall see the grave long before he does. This is the doing of the Lord and it is marvellous in our sight.”
