Nigerian witches and wizards have bad news for Edo State governor, Adams Oshiomhole, All Progressives Congress (APC) National Leader, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, and newly elected Emir of Kano, Mallam Sanusi Lamido Mohammed Sanusi II. On the other hand, they have cheering news for President Goodluck Jonathan regarding his re-election chances.
Speaking on the outcome of an emergency meeting they recently held at Afuze, Edo State, the leader and spokesman, Witches and Wizards Association of Nigeria, (WITZAN), Dr. Okhue Iboi, hinted that the alleged moves by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to impeach Oshiomhole might succeed.
He said this morning in Saturday Sun: “It appears as if Oshiomhole is a master political strategist but the crisis currently happening in Edo State will snowball into a bigger crisis that may see Oshiomhole being swept away from office. You can call it a political tornado or Tsunami. Comrade Governor should be vigilant.”
For APC National Leader Tinubu, the witch leader said: “Tinubu will be betrayed. He will be sold out by those he trusted. This betrayal will affect his political empire. Tinubu’s political dynasty is under threat of crumbling. Tinubu is a good man, but the bitter truth he must swallow today is that APC is going nowhere. Many topnotchers of PDP that are in APC now will go back to PDP. Witches said so in November last year and it happened. I’m telling the whole world again today that many former PDP leaders that are now in APC will betray Tinubu and other APC leaders, they will go back to PDP this year, and before 2015 general elections.”
On other national issues which they discussed, Iboi said Sanusi, the newly installed Emir of Kano, Sanusi Lamido should not rejoice yet. According to him, “What we see before Sanusi is myriad of woes. His road will be rough. Turbulent days lie ahead of him, he should not rejoice yet. He will experience trouble within and outside the emirate. His enemies are many, and to make matters worse for him, he had stepped on powerful toes. He needs all the prayers in this world to survive the turmoil looming before him.”
On the anxiety over 2015, Iboi urged Nigerians to remain calm, saying: “Nigerians should rejoice. This nation will not break up. Witches and wizards carried out some intercessory spiritual work in Arusa, Tanzania, and New Delhi, in India over this issue, and luckily our brethren, that is fellow witches there, joined hands with us, and it was resolved that Nigeria should not break up. Forget about any American prediction, Nigeria will not break up. There may be pockets of crisis here and there, but they will be election related violence.”
On 2015 general elections, the WITZAN leader said President Goodluck Jonathan will win. His words: “Jonathan will win re-election. Although there will be pockets of violence, Jonathan will win. I will also have to appeal to Buhari and Tinubu, they should not waste their money, time and energy on the poll. They should go home and rest. They should forget about becoming President or Vice President of Nigeria. APC will still lose more governors to PDP before this year runs out.”
Asked why other witches and wizards don’t come out or hold their meeting in the open, Iboi laughed, cleared his throat before blunting out: “You speak like a small pikin. Witches are like spirits. We are invisible. It is only those that operate in the spiritual realm that can see us either when we are meeting or going for assignment. I was born a witch. I inherited witchcraft from my mother when I was in her womb, from the age of 7 I started seeing unborn babies in their mothers’ womb, and I could predict with precision of sex of an unborn child whether it is a boy or girl. When I was born, I was born with a leaf in my hand, and starting from the age of 5, I started healing people like a grown-up herbalist.”
On the issues of witches being blood-thirsty, and suckling blood, Iboi said: “Those are bad witches, in our own association; we are white witches, and white wizards. We are here to save people. We don’t kill, we counter bad witches and neutralise them whenever they are on their evil mission.”
While saying that another meeting of witches and wizards is slated for Damaturu, the capital of Yobe State in October, Iboi said the meeting will review the outcome of the one held at Afuze, so as to enable witches to know what action and steps to be taken next.
“To add to that, we are also converging on Damaturu as a sign of solidarity with our members, and also people and government of Yobe State that we are with them in the hour of crisis,” he said. “The Boko Haram insurgency has become an open sore, and we are also joining efforts with government and other stakeholders to contain Shekau and his fellow blood-thirsty followers.”
