- A pastor of Cherubim and Seraphim church in Ibadan, Ismail Adeoye, has claimed that Nigeria is suffering from Awolowo and Abiola's curses
- Adeoye said both late Nigerians were cheated politically and humiliated while alive
- The pastor noted that the country needs spiritual solution to its numerous problems not political remedy
The pastor of the New Jerusalem Cherubim and Seraphim church, Ibadan, Oyo state, Ismail Adeoye, has revealed why kidnapping and killings are rampant in the country.
Legit.ng reports that he said Nigerians need prayer to remove the curses that have been hindering their progress and working against their destinies.
The pastor in a telephone interview with Legit.ng's regional reporter, Subair Mohammed, revealed that Nigeria and her citizens were suffering from the curses that were placed on them by the late sage, Chief Obafemi Awolowo, and late Chief Moshood Kashimawo Olawale Abiola who, according to him, were cheated politically, incarcerated and unjustly killed.
According to him, Nigerians must be prayerful and the federal government needs to pacify the souls of the late politicians for Nigeria to overcome and ward off the curses.
He said: “Heaven has revealed to me that Nigeria is suffering from curses of past Nigerian politicians who were unjustly treated and cheated of their mandates. I see Nigeria sinking in the ocean as a result of these curses of the oppressed and that of those that were unjustly punished.
"The effect of these curses is the bad foreign image the country has. It is the cause of lack of understanding by Nigerians of the mode of operation of President Muhammadu Buhari. It is also the cause of the insecurity and other challenges confronting us as a nation.”
The pastor further revealed that the solutions to the challenges of the country is spiritual and require no political solutions.
He stated: “President Buhari is trying his best to get the country back on the right track but little did he know that the problems of the country are beyond fighting corruption and appointing best brains, it is spiritual. It is only those that are disposed to prayers and are closer to God among our leaders that can overcome this curse.
"When late Chief Obafemi Awolowo took a shot at the presidency, did he get there? No, he was denied in spite of his popularity. Similarly, late MKO Abiola having won the 1993 presidential election was cheated and the result was annulled and he died in prison."
According to him, Awolowo and Abiola placed Nigeria under curses as a result of the injustice meted out to them by the federal government of that era, adding that "that is what is affecting us today. The kidnapping, armed banditry, farmers/herders clashes, corruption, youth unemployment etc. are results of these curses.”
He, however, said that President Buhari has pacified the soul of MKO by recognising June 12 as democracy day.
“I am happy to give every Nigerians glad tiding that with the steps taking by President Muhammadu Buhari to honour MKO Abiola’s family and recognise June 12 as democracy day, he has successfully pacified the soul of the late politician. Since the honour bestowed on Abiola family, you would observed that things have changed for the better and the country is experiencing improvement in all sectors.
"It is now left for the government to appease the soul of late Chief Obafemi Awolowo and other Nigerians that have fallen victim of government callousness," he added.
