Senior Pastor of Awaiting the Second Coming of Jesus Christ Gospel Church, Pastor Adewale Giwa has predicted the future of the country, following the emergence of former vice president, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, as the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, on Sunday.
He called on Nigerians to reject Abubakar and President Muhammadu Buhari, adding that they both have nothing good to offer the country.
Giwa, in a statement, said there was the need for Nigerians to look beyond the two leaders.
He said, ”Atiku or Buhari, the two of them won’t take Nigeria to anywhere. I see desperation in the eyes of them.
“What they want is to impoverish the poor people more. Buhari has been there for almost four years, what has he done to wipe away tears from Nigerians?
“Atiku was the vice president of this country, under his watch, what happened?
“Atiku and Buhari can be linked to the story of Saul and Samuel’ sons, Joel and Abijah. Joel and Abuja were appointed by Samuel father to be Judges over Israel.
“These two sons of Samuel never behaved like their father. They took bribes and denied people justice.
“This made leaders of Israel to approach Samuel and demanded to appoint them a king. After said and done, Saul came to be as the king of Israel.
“They thought the administration of Saul would be better, but to find out that Saul too was corrupt. God said he regretted to make Saul the king.”
“So, there is no difference between Atiku and Buhari. Nigeria needs a young and new leader who can lead the country in a right direction unlike the names we have hearing for a long time,” the cleric asserted.
