Ahead of the 2019 general elections, Oba of Lagos, Rilwan Akiolu, has warned aspirants with questionable characters never to come to him for endorsement.

The monarch, who vowed to work against any corrupt individual from leading the country in future, prayed God to let President Muhammadu Buhari complete his tenure.

Oba Akiolu took this stand ‎at the launch of Nigerian Women Against Corruption (WAC), in Lagos, on Wednesday.

The monarch attributed reasons for corruption to some government polices such as lack of security of tenure and inadequate mobilisation of contractors for public projects.

“Never again will a corrupt man become Nigeria’s president. There is no room for somebody who spent the first three years of former President Olusegun Obasanjo’s administration making money and turning many companies to his own to come back to be the president of this country again. I mean it and by God’s grace, it shall be so.

“If a man can achieve this much in office, under two years, it shows clearly that there is still hope for this country and whether we like it or not, we should thank God and commend Asiwaju Bola Tinubu”, he said.
