A former Nigerian federal lawmaker, Senator Shehu Sani, has countered those implying that God supported every victory in the recently concluded general elections.
This is coming after several politicians, especially those from the ruling party (APC), urged Nigerians to accept the election results, claiming that they reflect God’s will.
The PDP, however, argued that the results of the elections were not of God’s will, including Peter Obi, the Labour Party’s presidential candidate, who urged Nigerians to reject the results.
Speaking on Arise TV, Obi had said, “The problem of Nigeria is accepting what is unacceptable. That’s not God’s wish. God’s wish is when you do the right thing”.
In a similar vein, Shehu Sani, a former lawmaker, said, “power derived from rigged election is not from God”.
Speaking further in a post on his verified Facebook page, Senator Sani said, “after they buy votes, falsified figures and rigged elections, they will bring in religion to launder and legitimise their evil; and want you to believe that power is from God”.
