The founder of One Love Family, Sat Guru Maharaj Ji, has picked the All Progressive Congress (APC) National Leader, Sen. Bola Tinubu, as the most suitable to become the next president of Nigeria in 2023 if the southern part of the country is given the slot.
Maharaj Ji maintained that Senator Tinubu had given so much towards ensuring that the APC regains and maintains power adding that it will not be out of place if he is allowed to take over from President Mohammadu Buhari when his tenure expires in 2023.
He stated this on Wednesday at a news conference held at his Maharaj Ji village to herald the Family’s golden age festival
Maharaj Ji said, “Anybody can become the president of Nigeria as long as he or she places the interest of the country above personal interest.
“If there is anyone who is fit in the south, it is Sen. Bola Tinubu. So, I will offer him for president if the presidency would be zoned to South-West.
“This is because he has been able to play the role of a mobiliser and bridge-builder across the country. Also, Peter Obi is a fine choice from the South-East,” he said.
Maharaj Ji added that there was no rift between President Muhammadu Buhari and Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, saying it was the fifth columnists creating crisis between the two leaders.
He called on the government to establish education bank to avail indigent Nigerians access to quality education.
According to him, “the bank can pay for an individual’s education, so that the person pays back upon getting a job after graduation. This will be paid back through a stipulated percentage of salary over a period of time.”
MaharajJi expressed dissatisfaction with the state of affairs of the country, urging Buhari to do more in salvaging the situation.
“Nigeria has the highest number of mosques and churches, but can’t produce a pen. We need to get our priority right by making our factories more functional.
“We must also ensure that more jobs are created for our teeming youths to be fully engaged. We are a nation blessed with resources and industrious youths,” he said.
