“We cannot question God. I still spoke with him five days ago. I said to somebody that I wanted to ask him to come and flag off the road project between Ogbomoso and Iseyin, and the person said to me that I should not make such a move because he would deal with it politically. But I put a call across to him and he surprisingly said to me ‘Seyi, I will be there to flag it off.’
