As the Presidential inauguration of May 29 keeps drawing ever closer, the Prelate of the Methodist Church Nigeria, His Eminence, Oliver Ali Aba, has spoken up about it.
He says there is no cause for alarm as nothing untoward would happen on the set date.
The Prelate has asked Nigerians to remain positive, saying May 29 would be normal like every other in the lives of Nigerians.
He spoke during the inauguration of the new Methodist Diocese of Awka and the enthronement of Rt. Rev. Onyekachi Nwakanma, as the Bishop, Aba.
The clergyman pointed out that the country cannot afford to disintegrate due to political differences but must unite to build a prosperous nation.
According to Aba: “Nothing bad will happen on May 29. We Nigerians should be able to love our country. Are we happy with what is happing in Sudan or Kenya where about 89 people were recently buried due to an act of nepotism and Kenya’s government said it had gone beyond cultism but an act of terrorism?
“Every Nigerian must join hands to take our country to the next level. I believe that May 29 will just be a normal day in which our people will be happy for embracing democracy.
“All we know is that only one person will be there as president and we must support him.”
