Association of Witches and Wizards?..... Really?
I just read a report in the Daily Sun where the National Co-ordinator of the Witches and Wizards Association of Nigeria (WITZAN), yes, you heard right, Association *smh*, said and I quote, "Witches and wizards are praying for this nation...... We wish Nigeria well, but what has been revealed to us in the spiritual world is alarming.........He who has ears, let him hear very well, witches and wizards do not double-speak........ We are messengers from the spiritual world, and anybody that disobeys us, is doing so at his own risk.........“The way some people look at witches and wizards is as if we are evil-minded people. Not all witches are bad. Our own type of witchcraft which we practise is a progressive one. The day government and other stakeholders invite us to intervene in the affairs of Nigeria, we will gladly do so. We have the antidote to bring lasting peace to this nation........ Nigeria is a great country, witches and wizards can help restore its lost glory."
Dr Okhue Iboi, for that is his name, was speaking about Atiku Abubakar's presidential bid and its futility. He went on to say, “During our emergency meeting to deliberate on the state of affairs in Nigeria, it was clearly revealed to us that the days of Atiku’s relevance in Nigeria’s politics are over" Now, this whole thing gives me the heebie-jeebies for certain reasons, 1. When did these people become an association? Are they registered with the CAC, or which body? And when they wrote their association mission statement , what did they say? "To protect the interest of ......., perhaps?
2. They say someone has revealed to them; who revealed? What power, I want to know please. It cannot be God, so who? You know the answer, don't you?
3. They have also said that their own brand of witchcraft is a progressive one. How so, Dr. Okhue? How? Progress for whom and for what? Is it the kind that eliminates any body in its path? Exactly, what progress?
4. And finally, they have said they are waiting for an invitation to intervene in the issues of Nigeria before they can step in, but I want to ask, why wait? Why not just step in and do something, if there is indeed power to?
"Nigeria is a great country, witches and wizards can help restore its lost glory"
Dr Okhue, Nigeria is a great country, not because you said it, but because God made it so. He made us great, just like he made the whole world. We are the ones who have chosen to live beneath our potential and when we choose to arise, including you, Dr. Okhue, for you were made by GOD, the one who made us will now help us express that greatness.
You cannot help restore any lost glory, for no one helps restore what he didn't put in the first place!
