Rumours floating around the Internet that President Muhammadu Buhari is yet to move into the Presidential Villa due to advise from Senegalese spiritualists have been debunked by the presidency. This is according to a statement from Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Malam Garba Shehu
Here is the summary of the statement, as reported by ThisDay:
The presidency expressed “utter embarrassment at such suggestion.” It said Buhari as a practicing Muslim, believes his fate belongs to God.
According to the statement, no true believer combines faith in God and reliance on the power of ordinary mortals, who can neither protect themselves, nor protect others from the hands of fate.
The statement added that the so-called “spiritual cleansing of the Aso Rock Villa by Senegalese marabouts before President Buhari moves into the Villa” was the figment of the imagination of rumour mongers.
It noted that it was ridiculous to attribute Buhari’s delay in moving into the Villa to any advice from fictitious marabouts.
The statement stressed that renovation works in the Villa was largely responsible for the delay in Buhari’s movement into the Presidential Villa.
