The Oba of Lagos, Rilwan Akiolu, has said the Peoples Democratic Party,PDP, will never produce a governor in Lagos, Nigeria’s commercial capital.But speaking as the chief launcher of the autobiography of the former President of the Court of Appeal, Mustapha Akanbi, at the Sheraton Hotel in Abuja on Wednesday, Mr. Akiolu said “Recently, I told Bode George, (Musiliu) Koro and (Adeseye) Ogunlewe that “Look at me o! You will never win Lagos. God will give us another APC governor”.
After I was retired, some justices of the Supreme court, including Belgore, Uwais and Akanbi came to me and told me that they intend to go and see the president, but I told them with due respect that, that is where God wants me to be. “One of them, Wali held my hand, and prayed, saying that within one year, you will see what God will do in your life, and exactly a year later, my father, the late Oba, joined his ancestors. ” Governor Tinubu came and said don’t give anyone any money to be Oba, if it is yours, it will surely come and that is how I became the Oba, even though President Olusegun Obasanjo was against me,” the Oba said. Mr. Obasanjo, who was also seated at the high table with the monarch, simply laughed.
