Nigerian witches have expressed support for President Muhammadu Buhari’s anti-corruption campaign.
Spokesperson for White Witches Association of Nigeria (WHIWTAN), Dr Okhue Iboi, who spoke in Lagos said decision to back Buhari’s anti-corruption crusade was taken at the end of an emergency meeting of the association that took place at Ofosu, Edo State.
“As stakeholders in the project called Nigeria, we can’t fold our arms and pretend that all is well with our nation. It will not only amount to act of unpatriotism if we decide to look the other way while others are speaking out on way forward for Nigeria,” Iboi stated.
“Following our worries over Nigeria, the general assembly of witches decided to hold this meeting. In attendance were witches from all the 36 states of Nigeria including Katsina, the home state of Buhari. It was at the end of this meeting that the unanimous decision was taken that we should support Buhari to fight corruption. There was no dissenting voice – we also took other decisions on some national issues affecting the country.”
He called on Buhari to be resolute and not be afraid to step on toes in his avowed determination to sanitise the country.
“These looters are even lucky that it was Buhari that was going after them to expose and punish them. On our own, we had decided to wage spiritual war against them, and our own punishment would have been harsher. But but since Buhari has decided to take up the challenge, we have decided to support him. Buhari should not be afraid. I want to assure him that no human force can overcome him.
“We have one or two piece of advice that we want to give him if he can send emissaries to us or invite us to Aso Rock. Contrary to the wrong impression by some people, white witches are not evil people. We liberate people from evil people. We are messengers of God, and for over 20 years now, we have been speaking regularly in the media on some national issues,” he said.
Speaking on why former President Goodluck Jonathan lost 2015 election, Iboi said one of the factors was that Jonathan disobeyed witches.
Commenting on the fate of Rivers State Governor Nyesom Wike regarding election rerun, Iboi urged Wike to pray very well if he wants to return to the Government House.
“The ball is in Wike’s court. If he wants to remain as governor of Rivers State, he should pray very well otherwise the wind of change currently sweeping across the country will blow him away. But if he does all the needful, he will retain his seat,” he said.
