The claim that the National Leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu is playing God has been refuted by the people and Asiwaju’s fellow constituents of Ikeja Federal Constituency
Former Governor of Osun State and Minister of Interior, Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola, while speaking at different political rallies in Ilesa and Iwo towns of Osun State, accused the former Governor of Lagos State of trying to play God in his actions and utterances.
Reacting to the statement, the Lawmaker representing Ikeja Federal Constituency in the House of Representatives, Honourable James Abiodun Faleke, on behalf of the people of the Constituency, disagreed with Aregbesola completely.
Rather, he said Aregbesola has unfortunately allowed his present personal opinions, interests and emotions to becloud his reasoning, beliefs and the teachings of his religion.
“When many of us including and especially Hon Aregbesola and our families look back to pre-1999 and see the level we were, and how God has used this same Asiwaju’s selfless efforts, sagacity, intellect, and money to mentor and promote us, we should be eternally grateful to God instead of engaging in ego tripping ! If for once we fail to have everything our way as before, we should be humble enough to appreciate the fact that we can’t win all the time.
“God will not come down physically but will use people to help us to achieve our goals and that role of destiny helper is what Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu has been and is still playing.
“Asiwaju has never played God, rather his actions and utterances have always been divinely ordained.
“The man has always been guided by the spirit of God. There are so many politians he has mentored and supported to greatness and they will forever be grateful to him.
“Take my humble self for instance. He did not know me from Adam. He does not know my parents. I’m from Kogi State but look at how he has picked, mentored and supported me to what I’ve become today. Can that person be accused of playing God? No! Where that is coming from is to say the least, very disappointing,” Faleke said.
He pledged the total support of the people of Ikeja Federal Constituency to the presidential aspiration of Asiwaju Tinubu, once again reiterating that Asiwaju has all the qualities not only to govern Nigeria but also to take it to greater heights.
