2027: Clergy faults alleged merger to unseat Tinubu


The Senior Pastor of Awaiting The Second Coming Of Christ Ministry, Pastor Adewale Giwa, has asserted that President Bola Tinubu exhibits greater political acumen than the 2023 presidential candidates of the New Nigeria Peoples Party, Rabiu Kwankwaso; Peoples Democratic Party, Atiku Abubakar; and Labour Party, Peter Obi.

Giwa argued that Atiku, Obi, and Kwankwaso’s political strategy is flawed, making it improbable for them to unseat Tinubu in the 2027 elections. 

Political economist Pat Utomi had confirmed the collaboration of Atiku, Kwankwaso, and Obi to form a robust political party aimed at challenging Tinubu’s power in 2027.

Reacting to the merger, Pastor Giwa, in an interview said,“They are making the wrong move at the wrong time. Why didn’t they come together prior to the 2023 presidential election?

“You cannot wrestle power away from a ruling party when you don’t put your house in order. Were they sleeping and snoring before the 2023 election?

“I told one of them before the election that if he truly loved Nigeria, he would have supported a candidate of his party instead of defecting to another party. It took a perfect political storm to defeat former President Goodluck Jonathan in 2015. The opposition parties were united, and all of them put their personal interests aside and strongly supported whoever they presented for the poll.

“I don’t see them coming together to form a strong opposition party. President Tinubu is wiser than them. He is a veteran who knows how to play his game. If Tinubu decides to turn Nigeria around today, the opposition parties will be nowhere to be found.

“As I stated earlier, if President Tinubu makes Nigerians happy anytime, soon, the opposition parties will have nothing to complain about.”

On the place of the church in preparing Nigerians for the 2027 election, Giwa said: “The church is divided just as political parties are divided. There can never be a day the church will come together with one voice.”
