Witches warn against scuttling President-elect, Tinubu’s inauguration
The White Witches and Wizards Association of Nigeria have urged aggrieved politicians not to scuttle the inauguration of the President-elect, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, on May 29 at the Eagle Square, Abuja.
The group also said Tinubu will be provided with no fewer than 300 witches and wizards to ensure that no harm comes his way, adding that they are unhappy about the manner in which politicians have conducted themselves since Tinubu was announced as the winner of the February 25 presidential poll.
Speaking to newsmen in Calabar, the group’s spokesman, Dr. Okhue Oboi, said they care about the unity of the nation and would safeguard it.
He said: “We welcome Tinubu back to the country. Recall that Tinubu emerged the winner at our group’s spiritual presidential election held about two months ago before the terrestrial February 25 presidential election. Now, we have reviewed the volatile developments in the country. We urge the aggrieved parties to give peace a chance because resorting to self-help will do more harm than good to the polity. There is no reason for Tinubu to be afraid because all the campaigns of calumny mounted against him are mere distractions. We are currently cleaning and detoxifying the Abuja environment where Tinubu will operate from.
“What Tinubu needs now is prayers of good health and long life from all Nigerians so he could deliver on his Renewed Hope promise for a better life for all.”
Oboi, who spoke on the forthcoming governorship election in Kogi State, said the group has met with the three major tribes in the state and have aggregated their demands.
He said: “We have met with the Igala, Ebira and Yoruba population in the state. We met Igala people in Idah, Ebira people in Obehira and Yoruba people in Kabba and listened to them. We advise Dino Melaye to see us if he is desirous of realising his governorship dream. If he listens to our advice, he will laugh because the trees and waters of the confluence state will vote for him regardless of whether Governor Wike supports him or not.
“It will be in Melaye’s interest to see us too so he can smile. If he fails to see the witches and wizards, he will regret it because he will not win the election.”
