Shortly after defending why his prophecies on the General elections failed to come to pass, Apostle Suleiman in the interview with Punch
newspaper, made a disturbing statement concerning the president elect,
“Let me say this to you. In the next six months, people may stone
Buhari. The reason I’m saying this is because the expectation is too
Nigerians expect Buhari to put gold on their tables. Two, the
large chunk of followership Buhari has are youths and young people and
they are impatient. Young people don’t believe in progressive change,
they want change.
When they say change, they see a new picture. And Buhari has been
talking from the two sides of the mouth. During campaign, he told us
Boko Haram would be a thing of the past. Now, you are President-elect,
you are saying people shouldn’t expect a miracle. Are you a pastor? If I
wanted a miracle worker, won’t I bring a Mallam or a miracle worker?
When you were being voted for, we were not voting for a pastor,
so don’t tell us about miracles. Like I said, Jonathan will be seen as a
hero very soon because that’s the Nigerian story. Anybody who they feel
is not doing well, get him out. The next few minutes, they miss this
person. If by September, there is still a blink in power, people will
start abusing Buhari. You said you were going to do this.
Two, who are Buhari’s footmen, the large chunk are ex-PDP people
and of course you know, many are still defecting. Nigerian politicians
are the most shameless people (I know); they can’t bear hunger. They are
defecting now to lobby for offices. If you should check the people
around the man, it gives you an idea of where the man is heading. If you
check the agenda, listen to their campaign, it wasn’t about issues, it
was about personality. Change this man! And I wanted us to talk about
what the issues are, brainstorm to make things better.
I heard he had a five-hour meeting behind closed doors with
President Jonathan. He has now seen the reality of how deep the issues
are and it has now dawned on him that the man sitting there was actually
managing to survive. That is one thing about leadership. When the ball
is passed to you, you realise it’s deeper than you think. So I do not
see change in Nigeria. The only change I see is we have a breath of
fresh air, a new government. To say there will be instant change in
Nigeria, I doubt. We are praying as Christians and believers. It doesn’t
matter what the enemy is trying to do in Nigeria, as believers, we know
that the will of God will be done.”he stated.
