May 29: You Can’t Stop A Moving Train — Fani-Kayode Tells Onaiyekan

Vanguard Newspapers reports that Fani-Kayode, a former minister of aviation, responded to Cardinal John Onaiyekan's statement that he hoped to see the upcoming new Nigeria before passing away. Onaiyekan is the retired bishop of the Archdiocese of Abuja.

When there are legal matters that need to be resolved, according to Onaiyekan, swearing in individuals does not make sense.

The clerics stated God knows those who manipulated the election and voiced their regret over the electoral tribunal's failure to rule on the complaints submitted by opposition parties before the May 29 handover.

Fani-Kayode responded to Onaiyekan's position on Twitter by asserting that "nobody can stop a moving train," adding that Bola Tinubu's election as the next president "is the doing of the Lord and it is marvellous in our sight."

In his own words: "To Cardinal John Onaiyekan and those who concur with him, I say the following. The oath of office for our President-elect should be administered once the Election Tribunal has rendered its decision.

The Deep State plot to prevent Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu from becoming president has failed long ago, according to the opinion of the Nigerian people.

We are long past that point, and a moving train cannot be stopped. Like Pharaoh, those whose hearts have become hardened and who have refused to accept God's will and warning to release Asiwaju and the Nigerian people will perish right in front of our eyes.

"The Red Sea will swallow up everyone who tries to pursue us into the Promised Land while they are full of resentment, hatred, envy, anger, and violence.

The President-elect SHALL be sworn in on May 29th, God willing, and those who want him dead or wish him ill will see the grave long before he does. This is the Lord's doing, and it is wonderful in our eyes.
