June 12 cancellation Spiritually influenced, says Owie


The members of the defunct Supreme Military Council (SMC) who ordered the cancellation of the June 12, 1993 presidential election were under the control of the Holy Spirit, former Senate Chief Whip Senator Roland Owie said yesterday .

In a statement he released, Owie said, “The cancellation was meant to tell the world that those who are bad will not go unpunished and that whatever we sow we will reap. That’s why celebrating June 12 is celebrating retributive justice.”

“Beloveds, whatever we do in this world, we must always remember that God exists! There is paradise!! There is hell!!! “, he added.

Senator Owie asserted that “the June 12 election was a retributive event for the wicked, for the word of God says, ‘Evil will kill the wicked; and those who hate the righteous will be sorry (Ps.34.v.21)”. ”

He added that June 12, 1993 was “an event by which Almighty God showed that all powers belonged to Him. This event showed that God has heard the prayers of our great leaders, including the late Chief Obafemi Awolowo, Alhaji Shehu Shagari, Alhaji Adamu Ciroma, General Shehu Musa Yar’Adua and millions of Nigerians who have been repeatedly betrayed by the main actors and their collaborators, who were to be the main beneficiaries of the success of this June 12 election”.

Senator Owie listed the supposed beneficiaries to include “The person or persons who turned a clearly commercial transaction of the Moroccan land question into a political one, in order to damage the image of Chief Obafemi Awolowo who was the presidential candidate of the ‘UPN, in the heat of the Presidential Campaigns of 1978/79.

“The person or persons who lobbied the military government and then, to undo the Electoral College provision in the 1978 Transitional Decree, their removal from the ‘political goal post’ during the political match, when they realized that the majority of the NASS members of the then UPN, NPP, PRP and GNPP were ready to vote for Chief Obafemi Awolowo in the Electoral College.(I was then a participant as a UPN member of the HR at the time).

“The person(s) whose presidential aspirant lost the NPN presidential nomination at the Kano Convention in 1982 and subsequently they encouraged their friends in the military to overthrow the Shagari government.

“The person(s) who used their connections to the military hierarchy and had the leading presidential candidates of the NRC and SDP disqualified, allowing their candidate to have a field day.”
