Following the mixed reactions of the Muslim-Muslim ticket of the All Progressives Congress, APC, the leader of One Love Family, SatGuru Maharaj Ji, has defended Bola Tinubu's choice of running mate.

He raised questions as to what religion has done for the country in terms of development over the years.

Speaking at the Alarere residence of the Olubadan of Ibadanland, Oba Lekan Balogun, shortly after paying homage to the monarch, as part of the sect’s 42nd anniversary activities, Maharaj Ji said: “The issue of religion, for now, is outside of what is at stake.

“The concern should be what an individual in the office is capable of doing.

“Religion has not helped this country in any form and if anybody disagrees with me, such a person should point at what religion has done for us in terms of development.

“Or, are we saying Nigerians are not religious enough? What is important is what a particular person can do, for now, what we need is performance.

“What we need under the coming dispensation is a leader that would ensure that our various institutions work accordingly.”
