Published

Barely four days to the presidential election, the General Overseer of Evangelical Bible Outreach Ministries Int’l (EBOMI), Prophet Isa El-Buba, on Tuesday predicted that President Muhammadu Buhari will lose the election to his Peoples Democratic Party’s counterpart, Atiku Abubakar.

El-Buba stated this while addressing journalists in Jos, the Plateau State capital.

He said, “I know that the strongest soldiers are not the Nigeria Army and its not the police force, but the Nigerian people.

“The Nigerian people will surely protect their votes and if the President loses the election, he will have no option than to go to Daura.

“And if he presses on with what they have put on ground, to make sure that they stay in power; the Nigerian people will do the needful, and I will say that we know the things that will be done to get the president accept the result of the election,” he maintained.

“With what is on ground in the country, I have transversed the entire nation, I have seen the heartbeat of ordinary people and I can tell you this, that the President will lose this election.

“If you recall, what happened in 2015, President Buhari rode on state of the nation.

“The truth of the matter is the entire North gave a block vote to Mr. President, the South-West also gave him strong votes. But this time around, the North itself, Buhari will not get 50 percent of the votes and in the South-West he will not get more than 45 percent of the votes there.

“And in the South-East, he will hardly get 20 percent of the votes, also in the South-South probably 20 percent; while in the North-Central lets say 45 percent.

“In Kano, where he got his highest votes, he cannot get more than 50 percent, also in Kaduna especially with the attitude of the present Governor of the State, Nasir El-Rufai, with the Shii’te movement, surely he not going to get more than 40 percent of the votes in the state.

He lamented that about 90 million Nigerians are currently leaving below poverty level in the country, especially people from the North-East, who had hope that a Buhari presidency would wipe away their pains and sorrow, but that wasn’t the situation.

“As I said in 2015, it was a whole different game, so also in 2019, it will be a whole different game; and it’s because of the incompetence of the administration.

“I ask you, where is Aisha Buhari, within this whole period from the time she flagged off her own campaign and suddenly disappeared from the scene? She is nowhere.

“The disenchantment is not just about the person, but is about the cabal that have cloud this man are they once pushing him; the man is not fit to lead this country. Look at the blunders allover this country,” he stressed.

Speaking on the incumbent Governor of Plateau State Simon Lalong, the General Overseer said, the Governor came in through protest in 2015, against the candidate of the then ruling party, “and it was not like Lalong won, we know the truth”.

He said Lalong will also lose the March 2, governorship election to Jeremiah Useni, not because of anything, but because of the way he has gone along with those oppressing his people, “and giving them wings to fly.”

A former Minister of Works and National Chairman of South West Agenda for 2023, Senator Dayo Adeyeye, has restated that the truth that the quarter has produced the president withinside the beyond won’t forestall it from clinching the presidential price price tag if the All Progressives Congress zoned the price price tag to the South.

The former Minister opined that former Lagos State Governor, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, remains the best and the right man to succeed President Muhammadu Buhari after bowling out in 2023 based on experience and political networks.

Adeyeye spoke in Ado Ekiti on Tuesday during the official launching of the South West Agenda (SWAGA) 2023, a political platform rooting for the presidential aspiration of the former Lagos State Governor.

Adeyeye added that the APC leaders must respect the zoning of lresidency to the South in 2023, as a mark of respect for the silent agreement within the party at inception in 2013.

Adeyeye said: “And if the ticket comes to the South, the fact that the Southwest had produced the President before won’t prevent the Yoruba race from getting the APC ticket.

“You could all remember that the late President, Umaru Musa Yar’Adua was from Katsina State and when the ticket went back to the North in 2007, they picked President Muhammadu Buhari from Katsina. They didn’t say his state had produced President before.

“What we need in Nigeria is someone like Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, who knows everybody. Someone who has planted and nurtured people across all the zones. Someone, who believes in making stars to unite Nigeria,” Adeyeye said.

Also , the former Senator representing Ekiti South Senatorial District, Senator Tony Adeniyi, alleged that members of SWAGA in Ekiti were being harassed and intimidated by APC members loyal to Governor Kayode Fayemi , saying these barrage of embarrassment must stop in the interest of APC.

“Before SWAGA was formed, we had ‘Tokan Tokan’ and original ‘JKF’, which are outfits loyal to Governor Fayemi.

“Is it an offence to associate with one of the foremost Nigerians like Tinubu? We are being treated here in Ekiti like orphans in the Sahara desert . We are being intimated and harassed by people who had contributed nothing to APC.”

Also, in his short lecture at the event, a Professor of Law at the Faculty of Law, University of Lagos , Prof. Yemi Oke, said he came to fraternise with the group as a Yoruba man , who believes in the Southwest agenda for the 2023.

In his speech entitled: ‘Nigeria at a Crossroad, What Option for the Southwest Geopolitical Zone’, Prof. Oke, described Tinubu as the most qualified to lead Nigeria after President Buhari, so that all the faultlines and cleavages can be amended for national unity.

Commending Tinubu for working hard to sustain the country’s democracy, the Chairman, Inter-party Advisory Council in Ekiti, Hon. Ife Iyaniwura, said Tinubu has become a strong political stakeholder that people respect in the country.

“Asiwaju has been a phenomenon. He has shown it.”
