Keeji stated that the prayer programme and endorsement was organised because they believe that Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu would be a good Nigerian President.

“We pray to God that Tinubu needs good health, knowledge and long life to serve as the Nigerian President. To rule Nigeria is not a joke so we are begging God to help him and give him the opportunity to succeed in office.

“What we want Tinubu to do as president is for him to listen to the masses and do what they want.

“He should provide employment for the people and allow foreigners to come in to establish companies, when there is employment, crime would be limited in the country,” he said.
