Recall of the President, Mrs Aisha Buhari, last week described the victory of APC's Bola in the 2023 presidential poll as the will of God.

“Regardless of our interests and diversity, we should all accept it as the will of Almighty God; we wouldn't have done it without his grace.

But reacting in a post-election interview with Arise Television, Obi faulted the First Lady's comment saying God's wish is doing the right things and not vice-versa.

The problem of Nigeria is accepting wrongdoing and what is unacceptable. That is using God's name in vain. That is not what God is saying. God said do not use my name in vain.

The electoral commission, , had declared Bola Tinubu, as the winner of the Saturday, February 25 presidential election.

Mr Tinubu defeated 17 other candidates who took part in the election. He scored a total of 8,794,726 votes, the highest of all the candidates, thus meeting the first constitutional requirement to be declared the winner.
