- President Muhammadu Buhari's victory at the 2019 presidential election has been predicted by Satguru Maharaji
- Maharaji says he's supporting Buhari because of his impressive performance
- The spiritual leader describes APC defectors as hungry politicians
As the 2019 general elections draw nearer, President Muhammadu Buhari's victory at the poll has been predicted by the spiritual leader of One Love Family, Satguru Maharaji.
Leadership reports that Maharaji said in a statement he issued in Ibadan that President Buhari would win the forthcoming general elections.
NAIJ.com gathers that the spiritual leader, who said his support for Buhari was borne out of his impressive performance in office as president, stated that the general elections would be successful, peaceful and won by Buhari.
He faulted the decisions of the All Progressives Congress (APC) members who recently defected to other parties, describing them as hungry politicians without integrity.
Maharaji, however, called on the federal government to resolve the issue of insecurity bedeviling the country, adding that leaders of Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association of Nigeria (MACBAN) should be arrested. He said since the association had admitted responsibility for the killings across the country, they should be arrested.
The spiritual leader added: “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 equipment to demand for decent conditions of living?"
Meanwhile, NAIJ.com previously reported that the spokesman for President Muhammadu Buhari 2019 presidential campaign, Festus Keyamo (SAN), said the defection by All Progressives Congress (APC) lawmakers to the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) would not affect the president's re-election bid.
Keyamo said this in a statement on Sunday, July 29, in which he said the president won with large margins in the past in some states without the support of majority of the politicians from those states who are now members of the opposition party.
