The Oba of Lagos, Rilwan Akiolu has said that God will not allow any other party apart from the All Progressives Congress (APC) to take over the state in the 2019 governorship election.

The state of over nine million people has consistently been ruled by the progressives since the return of democracy to the country in 1999.

The PDP has, however, intensified its plan to win over the state from the APC in the forthcoming election.

Recall that Akiolu had in 2015 said that Igbo residents in the state should cast their votes for the governorship candidate of the APC gubernatorial candidate, Akinwunmi Ambode, or “perish inside the lagoon”.

Akiolu made this new remark on Friday in Lagos at the 11th Annual Hijrah Lecture and Commissioning of the new House of Assembly Mosque.

The monarch disclosed that God and Lagos ancestors will never allow any party except the APC to take over the sate.

He said the new Mosque was unique especially as it was built inside the Assembly complex where Bills are passed into law.

Oba Akiolu also argued that it was not enough to build a Mosque but that the custodians of the Mosque should be properly taken care of.

He also advised the custodians not to be involved in anything that would tarnish the image of the religion.

Speaker of the Lagos State of Assembly, Mudashiru Obasa commended the congregation for donating funds for the rebuilding of the mosque.

Governor Akinwunmi Ambode was represented by the Commissioner for Home Affairs, Dr. AbdulHakeem Abdulateef who is the Chief Imam of the House of Assembly Mosque.

In his speech, the Chairman of the Muslim Community of the Assembly, Sikiru Osinowo thanked God Almighty for the completion of the mosque.
