Sanwo-Olu and Tinubu

The ‘ROT Like Minds’, a political group, has organised special prayers for the success of APC presidential candidate Bola Ahmed Tinubu in the 2023 general election.

The prayer session was held on Sunday in Lagos.

The coordinator of the group, Jimmy Akinboro, chaired the joint Islam and Christian special prayers.

The group is made up of supporters of Rotimi Agunsoye (APC-Kosofe, Lagos Federal Constituency).

Mr Akinboro said the group organised the prayers to seek spiritual intervention for Mr Tinubu’s presidential ambition.

“The group believes that Tinubu’s presidential ambition will become a reality by seeking the blessings of God. Tinubu is a trusted and tested leader who has touched lives and redefined leadership in and out of political positions,’’ he said.

Mr Akinboro explained that the prayer session was also to support Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu’s re-election bid.

“This is not the first time Hon Agunsoye is organising this type of programme. We have embarked upon this prayer session in honour of our principal and our mentor. This is because he has unfolded his ambition to become the president of the country by the grace of God,” he stressed.

Mr Akinboro added, “We are his foot soldiers, and we are his loyalists. All of us have come under the banner of this group to organise this Christian and Muslim prayer session. We want to hand over all our affairs to God so that He can guide us and grant our request. This is so that Tinubu can become president to continue to do what he knows how to do best, which is developing people and developing society.”

APC chieftain in Kosofe local council, Adebajo Adetunji, said the prayer session was to pray for more wisdom, knowledge and Tinubu’s aspiration to come to reality.

“If you look at his records when he was Lagos state governor, he created the 37 LCDAs. These councils have created jobs for more people in the state,” Mr Adetunji noted. “Tinubu groomed many leaders across the country and elevated so many politicians. That is why we are also supporting his ambition and also supporting Governor Sanwo-Olu.’’

Kayode Ajulo, a constitutional lawyer has warned Nigerian politicians and political parties against disobeying the provisions of the Electoral Act 2022 during campaigns ahead of the 2023 general elections.

Mr Ajulo reminded candidates stated that the Electoral Act placed restrictions  been placed to prevent the usual electoral malpractices that start even from the period of the campaign.

“Section 92 of the Electoral Act, 2022, provides for prohibition of certain conduct at political campaigns,” he noted.

Mr Ajulo explained that a political campaign or slogan should not be tainted with abusive language directly or indirectly likely to injure religious, ethnic, tribal or sectional feelings.

According to him, abusive, intemperate, slanderous or bias language or insinuations or innuendoes designed or likely to provoke violent reaction or emotions should not be used in political campaigns.

He said places designated for religious worship, police stations and public offices should not be used for political campaigns.

“By the above provision prohibiting the use of public offices for election campaigns, it is safe to submit that palaces of our traditional rulers that are maintained with public funds are categorised as public offices,” he stated.

The lawyer said a credible election remained the basis for conferring legitimacy on any government in a democratic dispensation.

Section 92(3) of the act says, “Places designated for religious worship, police stations and public offices shall not be used for political campaigns, rallies and processions; or to promote, propagate or attack political parties, candidates or their programmes or ideologies.”
