The Ekiti State chapter of the National Association of Nigerian Traditional Medicine Practitioners has thrown their support behind President Goodluck Jonathan in the upcoming election in February.
Speaking to the press in the state capital, Ado Ektit, the State Chairman of NANTMP, Chief Jacob Orisamika described Jonathan as a humble person who can be trusted with power.
“We are supporting President Jonathan because we have consulted the oracle and it revealed that he is the best for the position. It was revealed that Nigerians will benefit more under him than any other candidates. Aside this, we have to show our support to Governor Ayodele Fayose who has been relating with Ekiti people closely. I believe that whatever the Governor supports must be supported by all Ekiti indigenes because Fayose is a man of the people,” he said.
At its first meeting of the year held in Ado Ekiti on Friday, January 30, over 4,000 members across the 16 Local Government Areas of the State converged to offer prayers for the state and the country.
The association also appealed to clerics to stop prophesying doom for the country, which it said could further ignite tension and cause chaos in the system.
