2023 Polls Rigged: Cardinal Onaiyekan’s Plea for a New Nigeria

John Cardinal Onaiyekan, who is currently the Archbishop Emeritus of the Abuja Catholic Archdiocese, has spoken on the elections in Nigeria.

On Thursday, the Archbishop voiced the hope that he will live to witness the anticipated new Nigeria before he passes away.

Onaiyekan, who was commenting on the presidential election of 2023 during an appearance on a program broadcast by Channels Television on Thursday, stated that the election was rigged and emphasized that individuals involved in manipulating the outcome of the polls are aware of themselves.

The clergyman, who is 80 years old and has expressed concern at the failure of the electoral tribunal to make a decision on the complaints filed by opposition parties before the handover on May 29, stated that God knows those who rigged the election.

He stated, “At my age of 80, I won’t be going anywhere.” I still have the idea that before I go to paradise, I should see a better Nigeria, and I think it’s feasible that this wish would come true.

“Those who participated in the election fraud are aware of their actions. They are aware of some who stubbornly refused to concede to the will of the people. And the amazing thing is that God himself is aware of them all.

Even the court might not know, but God certainly does. And they are aware of themselves.

The more we talk about God, the more careful we need to be not to misuse the name of God in our conversations.

“There are nations that did not wish to mention God, yet they are doing a good job handling their business despite this.

“But if we choose to continue bringing up God, then we must conduct our business in accordance with the will of God,”

The applications that are being filed with the court in an effort to overturn Bola Tinubu’s election as president-elect are scheduled to be heard on May 8th.

Atiku Abubakar, the candidate for the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), and Peter Obi, the candidate for the Labour Party (LP), had petitioned the tribunal to overturn Tinubu’s victory, claiming that the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) had improperly taken their mandates.
