…Urges ASUU to suspend strike, go back to negotiation table
By Olasunkanmi Akoni and Monsuru Olowoopejo
Barely, 100 days after President Muhammadu Buhari left shores of the country for medical leave in United Kingdom (UK), founder of One Love Family, Satguru Maharaj Ji, has offered to heal the president of his ailment if he wishes.
Meanwhile, Maharaj Ji has condemned the ongoing indefinite industrial action embarked upon by Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU, over Federal Government unfulfilled promises as an act aimed to draw the country’s education sector backward.
Maharaj ji, who spoke at the Nigerian Union of Journalist, NUJ, Secretariat, Alausa, Ikeja, while addressing media on state of the nation, assured Nigerians that challenges confronting the nation would soon be over.
While speaking on continued absence of the President, the spiritual leader stressed that he was ready to heal him if the presidency could bring him home.
According to him, “I do not believe in sickness. The President of Nigeria is great and he should remain so. And that is why if he comes to me for healing, I will heal him. I have done it for several public officeholders. I remember that I treated Ibrahim Badamosi Babangida, IBB, when he was afflicted by an ailment in his leg. I cured him. But he later denied me. That was why the ailment returned.
He noted that presence of the President is needed in the country, saying, “It will douse agitation of Nigerians and help address issues challenging the country.”
Maharaj Ji continued: “Since he left, the acting President, Yemi Osinbajo has been acting on his behalf very well, he has shown enough competence. And I believe he has defied Nigerians prediction that he will be a figure head. I believe he knows what he is doing.”
On ASUU strike, he described it as an action capable of altering the school calendar and further cripple Federal Government plans for economic recovery.
His words, “They (lecturers) should opt for dialogue with the government and I am sure, Buhari led administration will cooperate with them because it is in-line with his government policy of change.
“Looking at the ASUU strike, it is manipulation by the European witches to set the country backward again.”
