The founder of Unity and Peace Movement (UAPM) in Ondo State, Pastor Sola Okunade Wednesday urged Nigerians to give President Mohammed Buhari the opportunity to serve for a second term.
Pastor Okunade during a chat with Journalists in Akure said, a vote for President Buhari in 2019 will save the nation from impending crisis going by his resolute to wage war against corruption in the last three and half years.
He how ever recalled how he predicted that even though Chief M. K. O Abiola will win the June 12, 1992 Presidential election but that some powers that be would prevent him from actualising his victory.
Chief Abiola, he said, was incarcerated in detention where he later died having been adjudged the winner of June 12 in confirmation of his earlier prediction.
Another prediction, he said, was the attempted transformation of late Gen. Sanni Abacha from Military to Civilian rule which he said could had spelt doom for Nigeria if not for Divine intervention which he foresaw.
In the case of President Buhari, he assured that there would be peace and stability if Nigerians could cast their votes for him by February 2019.
He noted that Nigeria is blessed with good leaders who are capable of fixing both human and material resources to move Nigeria to greater heights citing the antecedent of Alhaji Bola Ahmed Tinubu, one of the pillars in the South Western part of the country.
Bola Tinubu, he said, has plaid a significant role in sustaining peace, unity and Progress of the country by creating political stability across the country as a detribalised leader.
The Unity and Peace Movement, a Non Governmental Organisation, a non profit making organisation, he said, has being a reputable NGO for her various humanitarian services in building the nation for Harmony and Progress, providing succour for the less privileged in term of creating employment opportunities.
According to him, the major activities of UAPM since it’s establishment has been seeking Divine intervention in resolving the nation’s problems, basically seeking the face of the Lord to make Nigerian roads accident free during Ember Months and the year round.
His words, “it is the will of God that every Nigerian citizen play a vital role for harmony, peace, Progress and Success to strive in Nigeria regardless of religion background”.
It will be recalled that other activities of the NGO is involving religious leaders, both Christians and Muslims to organise safety awareness at Motor Parks in major cities across the South West to reduce accidents on Nigerian roads to the barest minimum.
