Guru Maharaji Backs Buhari To Win In 2019, Says Fayose Lost Because He Disrespects Elders
The spiritual leader of One Love Family, Satguru Maharaji, has backed President Muhammadu Buhari to win the 2019 presidential election, which he said will be peaceful.
Daily Sun reports that the spiritual leader said this while speaking to newsmen at a press conference on Friday, July 27, at his worship centre, Satguru Maharaji village along Lagos-Ibadan expressway in Ibadan, Oyo state capital.
Maharaji, while declaring his unflinching support for Buhari, stated that he has performed well since he was elected as President.
The spiritual leader described those who decamped from the All Progressives Congress (APC) to other political parties as hungry politicians who lack integrity.
Maharaji further attributed the defeat suffered by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the hand of the APC in the just concluded Ekiti State governorship election to the alleged unruly behavior of Governor Ayodele Fayose.
He called on the National Leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu not to abandon Fayose.
His words: “A child that disrespects elders will suffer doom but I appealed to Tinubu and other elders in political circle to please forgive him. Fayose has erred but they should not disown him. This should be a lesson to others to respect elders so that they won’t suffer doom like Fayose.”
Maharaji also called for the immediate arrest of the leaders of the Fulani herdsmen group, known as Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association of Nigeria (MACBAN).
He said: “The inertia so far exhibited by the government in the face of continuous killings by the Fulani perpetrators is highly intriguing. Why is the government not responding to criminality of Fulani murderers the way it did in the Niger Delta against agitators who did not kill but only torched machines and equipments to demand for decent conditions of living?”
