It seems now that politics or political results are no more determined by the electorates or by free and fair elections occasioned by a democratic voting process, but by prophecies, divine revelations and visions. We have seen how notable pastors both in Nigeria and abroad have delved into “political waters” in search of the eventual winner of the Nigerian 2015 presidential elections which will be conducted this weekend, March 28. They seem to be very much in a hurry to be named as the one who has more spiritual powers to ascertain what could happen in future.
The self-acclaimed living master of the world and ruler of the spiritual kingdoms of Africa, Sat Guru Maharaji Ji, has given his own “divine revelation” about the outcome of the elections.
In what looks like endless entanglement of religious authorities in political matters, he told his congregation on Sunday that there is no vacancy in the presidency for the All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential candidate, Muhammadu Buhari. According to him,
“There is no vacancy for Buhari at Aso Rock. President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan is the verifiable divine choice of the forthcoming presidential election. As the Living Perfect Master of creation in whose hands the fate of Nigerian project lies spiritually, I declare divinity’s decision to return Jonathan to Aso Rock over Muhammadu Buhari.
“I had publicly and sufficiently advised Buhari against nursing the ambition to rule Nigeria again. Superior forces are actually in-charge of the Federal Republic of Nigeria. I am at the helm of these great and unseen primordial powers of creation.
“My commitment to ensuring that Buhari and his fellow Anglo-American proxies do not deflect Nigeria off its path of gradual transition to authentic sovereignty, sustainable unity and real prosperity is sacrosanct. Nigeria is no longer to be ruled by feudal agents of Western neo-colonial power and Arab imperialists.”
Then talking about the President, who is the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), he said,
“He is an authentic component of Nigeria’s divinely graphed transition to greatness. His return to Aso Rock will further secure Nigeria from being re-enslaved by those who insist they were born to rule.”
He therefore called on all patriotic Nigerians to vote for the President.
But this brings us to ask, If divine revelations were enough for victory at the polls, why still canvass for the electorates votes? Or are these divine revelations mere popularity stunts?
It should be noted that the greater percentage of this “prophecies” are rooting for the incumbent president, Goodluck Ebele Jonathan.
