The founder of One Love Family, Satguru Maharaj Ji has urged Alhaji Atiku Abubakar not to further challenge the electoral victory of President Muhammadu Buhari at the Supreme Court.
ABN TV had reported that Atiku, presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), lost his bid to upturn the victory of Buhari and the APC at the Presidential Election Petitions Tribunal.
Obviously not satisfied with the verdict of the tribunal as regards the February 23 presidential election, Atiku and his party, PDP filed an appeal at the Supreme Court.
But speaking at a press conference monitored by ABN TV at his Lagos spiritual centre, Maharaj-Ji called on the former vice-president to discontinue the court process, and openly congratulate President Buhari on his victory, instead.
“There is need to inform all contestants not to institute any further appeal in the Supreme Court. Rather they should congratulate and give support to Mr. President to allow him proceed in earnest to tackle matters of State which require urgent attention”, he said.
“I would like to also congratulate all present for cooperating with me to disgrace the enemies of the people who predicted that there would be war in Nigeria before, if not during and or after the just ended general elections.
“I singularly led the team to advise the blacks in the Diaspora right from the word not to vote for any other contestants other than President Buhari because we do not need any egregious leader who would wire, transform and steal all your wealth for developing Middle Eastern and European countries, as discovered during the first term of Mr. President.
“I am therefore congratulating the Judges in the Presidential Election Petitions Tribunal for a job well done to confirm that the elections of President Buhari was fair, free and conducted in an atmosphere of peace.
“This was given credence by all the local and foreign observers”, Maharaj-Ji added.
He called on the nation’s treasury looters and corrupt politicians to surrender their loots and negotiate a soft landing, while allaying the fear of any possible coup in Nigeria.
“I would like through this medium, to allay the fears of the other members of the opposition groups who have been fingered for diverting moneys meant for public utilities for private use, not to be afraid.
“All they need do is to come out one by one to confess and handover what is left of how much they stole and they would be given soft landing, otherwise, they should be prepared for the worst should they wait to be caught unawares. IBB and Abdulsalam Coup cannot happen at this time”, he said.
Maharaj-Ji urged the Nigerian government to take urgent steps to rename the country to “Republic of SONGHAI”, ‘the Country of the Sun God’, adding that “a stitch in time saves nine.”
