“When my husband was in school, he was into politics. And once you are a politician, you will continue to be a politician. Yes, he has been in politics, since the time of MKO Abiola, but it is destiny. If God said the time is not ripe, there’s nothing one can do. You continue trying. God says we should pray without ceasing, and we shall continue to pray. If it is your heart desire, you continue to pray to God and worry Him, until He gives you that thing you want. So, I cannot tell my husband not to play politics. Maybe, God has said this is the right time for him,” she said.
