Veteran actor Ebun Oloyede aka Olaiya Igwe, whose video last weekend went viral on social media for striping by a beach and praying for Tinubu’s victory has said that God directed him to take the action.
Newsonline reports that the popular filmmaker said God directed him to show his love for Bola Tinubu, the presidential candidate of the ruling All Progressives Congress by praying for his victory at the poll in 2023 at beach.
Olaiya Igwe who said this on TVC’s programme, ‘Your View’, on Monday, added that the APC presidential candidate has been very helpful to him.
“The Almighty God used Asiwaju, and Dapo Abiodun when I first fell sick. Asiwaju, Dapo Abiodun and MC Oluomo, He used them to hold my soul,” he said.
Olaiya added, “I can do anything to support Asiwaju. As long as I believe this thing has nothing to do with any other person, I can do it to any length; deliberately and I’ll have no cause to regret.”
Speaking on how he got a message from God to pray for Tinubu’s victory at beach, Olaiya said, “Bola Tinubu has done a lot in my life and I have said this in most of my interviews. I was asked to stand up and go and do it spiritually.
“I have a gift of revelation from Almighty God. At times, I see what God has for me before it happens.
“I was sleeping that day and a voice came to me and said ‘Please stand up, you said you love Asiwaju and he has been assisting you?’ And I said ‘yes.’ And he said, ‘Stand up, go and do this and this for him.’”
