File this under “so false”!
Earlier this week, there were rumours floating around the Internet that President Muhammadu Buhari is yet to move into the Presidential Villa due to advise from Senegalese Marabouts (spiritualists).
However, Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Malam Garba Shehu, has debunked the rumour via a statement.
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.
