Magnus Atilade, the chairperson of the Christian Association of Nigeria, CAN, Southwest Zone, has echoed the word of Reuben Abati on the notion that there are demonic forces at work in Aso Rock and extended a warning to President Muhammadu Buhari.
In this interview with Sun News, Archbishop Atilade appealed to Buhari to take urgent action concerning the delivery of dividends of democracy to millions of Nigerians who he noted are presently going through hard times.
When asked about the declaration by Dr. Reuben Abati, who served as a spokesperson to former President Goodluck Jonathan, where he said that some demonic forces occupies Aso Rock and that they were responsible for some unpopular decisions, anti-masses’ policies and even strange behavior by our leaders whenever they were in Aso Rock, he had this to say:
“I will say that we should not just dismiss Abati’s assertions with a mere wave of the hands as some people want Nigerians to do. Abati is not a kid, if he had not seen anything, he would not have talked,” the cleric said.
“For one, we all know that principalities and powerful forces exist and they can occupy anywhere. It is only power of prayers that can subdue them.
“If principalities and power have not occupied Aso Rock, how would you explain the actions of some of our leaders that have at one time or the other been the landlords at Aso Rock, even including the present landlord there?
“Some of our leaders before getting to Aso Rock would make a lot of promises to Nigerians but on getting to Aso Rock, they become changed persons, they become inaccessible, and Nigerians now become baffled as to what has gotten over them.
“Of course, it is those principalities, and demons that are responsible. We need to carry out spiritual cleansing of Aso Rock.
“However, in doing that, I will advise President Buhari to organize inter-faith prayers that will bring about Christian and Islamic leaders to pray and purge Aso Rock of any demonic influence, and this should be done very fast.”
Atilade who is also the president, Gospel Baptist Conference of Nigeria and Overseas, also had this to say about the Nigerian first lady:
“God bless the First Lady, Aisha Buhari. It is God that spoke through her the minds of millions of Nigeria. She deserves kudos.
“She is a woman that doesn’t want her husband to fail, and that was why she was able to display that rare courage in speaking out.
