Rilwan Akiolu, oba of Lagos, says  he has implored the state governor, Akinwunmi Ambode, to accept the outcome of  the state governorship primary election and leave the matter to God.  

Tinubu was fiercely opposed bid to Ambode's second term bid, throwing his weight behind Jide Sanwo-Olu who eventually emerged the APC governorship candidate.

In an interview with PUNCH, Akiolu says Bola Tinubu, national leader of the APC will be justified if he is angry over the affairs of the state.

He said no evil will befall Ambode.

The Oba said “I know he’s a good person,”

“No evil will befall him and God still has great plans for him (Ambode). When the breeze blows, we will all see what the chicken is hiding underneath.

“The truth is that if Bola Ahmed Tinubu is angry, he’s justified. No evil will befall the three of them. They know my stance on the issue and it’s not a secret.

“Better people should come into politics, because majority of them there are liars and that is the truth. As time goes on, we will continue to de-emphasise the import of money in our election.

“On the other hand, concerning Ambode, if you have charm but you don’t have the antidote or another charm that can counter it, then you don’t have anything. I won’t say more than that. May God help all of us.

“So, I didn’t talk because they are both my children and it will get better.”

Meanwhile, Akiolu advised President Muhammadu Buhari to prevent former President Olusegun Obasanjo from “escaping” if he wins reelection in 2019.

“The moment he wins the election, he should close the border so that Obasanjo won’t escape,

“Obasanjo should change his ways. An adage says that a deity that we try every possible thing to put in a place of honour that defies all such gestures would expose itself to ridicule at the end of the day.” the Oba stated
