The Oba of Lagos, Oba Rilwan Akiolu received the President of Nigeria; Goodluck Ebele Jonathan in his palace today just a PDP led delegation kicks off its campaign in Lagos today.
Oba Akiolu made comments exonerating Jonathan from allegations of corruption and incompetence while insisting that many of the problems the President is confronting are problems he inherited.
However he ended on a somewhat conciliatory note perhaps in a bid not to sound particularly biased towards one candidate.
Here’s an excerpt from his address; “What will be will be; God Almighty will give the best person the opportunity to lead the country. Mr. President God knows the best,I am happy; what I want are free and fair elections”
I am happy that Mr. President directed INEC to ensure that voters cards are distributed to every eligible member of the electorate
