Barely four days to the presidential election, the General Overseer of Evangelical Bible Outreach Ministries Intâ€™l (EBOMI), Prophet Isa El-Buba, on Tuesday predicted that President Muhammadu Buhari will lose the election to his Peoples Democratic Partyâ€™s counterpart, Atiku Abubakar.
El-Buba stated this while addressing journalists in Jos, the Plateau State capital.
He said, â€œI know that the strongest soldiers are not the Nigeria Army and its not the police force, but the Nigerian people.
â€œThe Nigerian people will surely protect their votes and if the President loses the election, he will have no option than to go to Daura.
â€œAnd 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,â€ he maintained.
â€œWith 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.
â€œIf you recall, what happened in 2015, President Buhari rode on state of the nation.
â€œThe 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.
â€œAnd 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.
â€œIn 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 Shiiâ€™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 wasnâ€™t the situation.
â€œAs I said in 2015, it was a whole different game, so also in 2019, it will be a whole different game; and itâ€™s because of the incompetence of the administration.
â€œI 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.
â€œThe 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,â€ 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, â€œand it was not like Lalong won, we know the truthâ€.
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, â€œand giving them wings to fly.â€
