Spiritual leader of the Brotherhood of the Cross and Star, His Holiness Olumba Olumba Obu has said that President Muhammadu Buhari will not die in office.

The cleric also said that God chose Buhari to fight the war against corruption.

He made the comments while speaking in Calabar, Cross River state, Vanguard reports.

“When we said at the onset of the administration that those who stole Nigeria’s money will return all, many did not believe us,” he said.

“But the president must pray for God to lead him to apply the recovered loot to the benefit of all Nigerians. Let me repeat that Nigeria is a very well blessed country; to those wishing the president dead, he will not die,” he added.

Buhari’s health status has been in the news since January when he left the country for a medical vacation in London.

The president was meant to spend 10 days abroad, but he ended up spending 49 days.

Fears that the president had taken ill were renewed when he failed to attend the Federal Executive Council (FEC) meeting on Wednesday, April 26 and the Aso Rock Juma’at prayers Friday, April 28.
