The head of the Awaiting the Second Coming of Christ Ministry, Pastor Adewale Giwa, has told those who were anticipating the arrest of President Bola Tinubu, following some prophecies, that God does not care about politics.

Following the inauguration of Tinubu on Monday, May 29, Giwa pointed out that some of his colleagues only allowed emotions to control them.

Tinubu took the mantle of leadership in Nigeria on Monday, and Giwa expressed disappointment over the conduct of his colleagues in the last presidential election.

Giwa, in a statement released and handed over to journalists in Akure on Monday, said God doesn’t care about politics but cares about the people who obey Him.

Prior to Tinubu’s inauguration ceremony, some religious leaders within the Christian community had predicted that the former Lagos State Governor would not be sworn in.

However, Giwa said his colleagues only surrendered themselves to the flesh.

He said: “They didn’t hear from God because He doesn’t care about politics. We only surrendered ourselves to the flesh instead of the Holy Spirit.

“We allowed our emotions to control us instead of keeping our hope in Jesus alive. We often display fear, anger, and worry.

“Rather than love, we fight. Rather than strive for unity, we throw stones at the other side. Instead of resting in the peace God gives us, we worry about what we cannot control. We have placed our hope in politics, and our actions show it.

“That’s not the way it should be. I think there are a few things we need to remind ourselves of about the election and politics.

“When we put our hope in something other than Christ, we will eventually be let down. Our role in society is to advise, criticise if necessary, and speak the truth to power.

Speaking on what to expect from the new president, the cleric said Tinubu would always be remembered for good if he deemed it necessary to transform Nigeria beyond the expectations of the people.

“He doesn’t need to be reminded of what to do; he lives in Nigeria and knows what to do to make the citizens happy. He needs to make electricity stable for foreign investors and Nigerians, tackle security challenges and boost the nation’s economy,” Giwa stated.
