The Registrar of the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB), Prof. Is-haq Oloyede, says President-elect Bola Tinubu’s victory in the February 25 presidential election was orchestrated by God.

Oloyede made the remarks on Friday, while giving a goodwill address at the 2023 Presidential Inauguration Public Lecture at the National Mosque, Abuja.

Citing a Yoruba phrase made popular by Tinubu, ‘Emi Lokan’ (meaning ‘it’s my turn’), Oloyede said God had endorsed the statement.

According to the Secretary General of the Nigeria Supreme Council for Islamic Affairs (NSCIA), the journey the new administration is about to embark on shall be a successful one for those at the helm and Nigerians at large.
