The Spiritual father/Chairman, Cherubim & Seraphim Movement Church Worldwide, Most Rev. Samuel Abidoye, has weighed in his opinion on the reported fallout between Tinubu and governor Akinwunmi Ambode of Lagos State.
The fallout between both men became obvious when over 50 council members loyal to Tinubu pledged their support for Jide Sanyaolu Sanwonolu, who also has Tinubu’s backing.
While speaking in Kwara, Abidoye, who was represented by Pastor Nathaniel Ayakanmi, urged Tinubu and Ambode to avoid any action that will cause crisis in Lagos.
According to him ” Lagos must continue to have peace. If there is a fire in Lagos, it will affect every part of Nigeria.”
He warned against imposition by leaders, adding that the people should be allowed to elect their leaders.
He said, “ Lagos must continue to have peace, as the state is strategic to Nigeria.
“Tinubu should continue to be a stabiliser in Lagos politics and act according to God’s dictates for the benefit of the people.
“Nobody should impose leaders on anybody no matter how powerful you are. You should not forget this fact that you are here today because God allowed you to be there.
“They should not put fire in Lagos. Lagos is the centre of Nigeria. Although Abuja is the headquarters, Lagos is the centre and if there is a fire in Lagos, it will affect every part of Nigeria.”
