The White Witches and Wizards Association of Nigeria has written to both Atiku Abubakar of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and Peter Obi of the Labour Party (LP) over the decision made by the Presidential Election Petition Tribunal (PEPT), stating that both should stop chasing shadows in their pursuit of President Bola Tinubu.
The group counselled Obi and Atiku to accept their losses, move on with their lives, and quit wasting time and money chasing shadows in court.
The witches and wizards association also asked the presidential contenders to lay down their swords and support President Bola Ahmed Tinubu in his efforts to build a new Nigeria.
They subsequently advised other politicians who were defeated at the polls to quit wasting money on litigation by first examining traditional methods of determining the outcome of their cases before beginning on the route of irresponsible spending on court proceedings.
Dr. Okhue Iboi, the spokesperson for the association stated that they had initially told Obi and Atiku not to go to court but they refused to listen.
Rising from an emergency meeting convened in Abuja, the spokesman of the group, Dr. Okhue Iboi stated, “Atiku and Obi should accept the fate that befell them.
“We had already warned them not to go to the election petition tribunal, but when they insisted they were going, we too sat and analysed the petition of the two major contenders and the other fringe political party seeking relevance by filing a petition at the tribunal. “We weighed the petitions and evidence advanced by the two parties and discovered that they were replete with emptiness. “So, we were not surprised that the five Lord Justices that decided the petitions threw them out for lack of evidence. “We commend the bravery of the patriotic judges for not bowing to cheap blackmail and intimidation embarked upon on social media by the followers of Mr Obi.
“We also frown at his acquiescence to the crude method deployed by his horde of social media landlords and landladies.
“He would have demonstrated rare statesmanship had he for once tried to rein in on his followers whose stock in trade was largely insults and mob fashion attacks on social media as if that method had ever won an election anywhere in the world.
“Obi has more prospects. Let him play national politics, not religious or sectional politics. He could still go places, but he must get his politics right,”
Iboi continued by asserting that Tinubu was sent by God to deliver the nation from its numerous problems, adding that if this were not the case, he would not have overcome the challenges set in his path by the administration he assisted in forming.
“Let Atiku, the retired presidential candidate and Mr Obi, his son, cooperate with Tinubu to deliver this country. We, the witches say Tinubu was divinely sent because of the circumstances of his life”, Iboi concluded.
