The former Lagos governor who disclosed that he has fully recovered from his surgery noted that God is the giver and taker of life and that he can empower anyone at his own time.
“I’m a little emotional now, but I’m happy. God is the giver of life and the only one who can take life. “And he says, if I grant you power and the privilege in this life; I am the only one who can take it from you if you don’t use it in the way and manner that promotes humanity. God can give power to anyone he wills.
“It is the same God that has spared us till today and has given us the privilege. I give glory to God because I’m standing before you hale, hearty, and well.”
