Leadership reports Tiku as saying Nigerians must be aware that power comes from God.
He reportedly added that Nigerian youths are watching events as they unfold in the country with ripe attention on the activities and action of some past leaders.
“How long and how many times would the former vice president apologise to his former boss?” Tiku asked.
