SATGURU Maharaji, the self-acclaimed perfect leader and spiritual leader of One Love Family, says the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) lost the governorship election in Ekiti State because of the alleged unruly behavior of Governor Ayodele Fayose.
Though the PDP has been crying foul that it was rigged out by the APC during the election, Marahaji said Fayose had stepped on elders’ toes and paid for it with the outcome of the election.
According to Maharaji who spoke during a press conference at his worship centre, Satguru Maharaji village along Lagos-Ibadan expressway in Ibadan, Fayose had offended notable elders, including himself and President Muhammadu Buhari through his unguarded statements.
“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 declared his unflinching support for President Buhari, describing those who decamped from the All Progressives Congress (APC) to other political parties as hungry politicians who lack integrity.
He explained that his support for Buhari was borne out of his sterling performance in office as President of Nigeria.
He further predicted that the forthcoming general elections would be successful, peaceful and won by Buhari.
On the spate of killings in the country by suspected Fulani herdsmen, Maharaji tasked the Federal Government to immediately arrest the leaders of Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association of Nigeria (MACBAN), noting that the arrest was necessary because the association had admitted responsibility for the killings across the country.
“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?”
