A presidential media aide, Femi Adesina, has noted that the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari, has succeeded in overcoming negative prophecies since he became the leader of the country.
The Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity made this known in a statement titled, ‘PMB and the Futurologists’, shared on his official Facebook page on Thursday.
He revealed that the President was able to overcome these prophecies with the mercy of God.
Adesina wrote, “Since he became leader of the country, President Muhammadu Buhari has been an object of the futurologists. They have come up with tons of predictions, many of which went wide off the mark, hitting the crossbar.
“Many times, they have virtually killed him. Many other times, they have deposed him through the 2019 election. They have foreseen sickness, death, empty seat at the Presidential Villa.
“But year after year, month after month, President Buhari continues to do his duty to the country, and to his family. He remains constant like the Northern Star.
“Yes, typical of a human being, he can be sick and indisposed from time to time. We remember 2017, when President Buhari was practically unavailable between January and August, with only intermittent returns to the country in-between.”
“Human being, prince or pauper, President or manual laborer, can be ill, can recover, or can even die. What eventually happens is a matter of mercy from God Almighty.”
While Recalling a plane-crash prophecy, Adesina said, “I had cause to take up a mountebank sometime last year when he said the President’s jet would crash at the last quarter of 2021. What was his intention? Patronage. That the President should send emissaries to him with bags of money, so he could pray and stave off the tragedy. Prayer contractor!
“The President was particularly busy with international travels at the period the ‘prophet’ mentioned; USA, Ethiopia, Riyadh, Glasgow, London, Paris, Durban, Dubai, Turkey, and many other places. Did any accident happen? Not even an incident. That is where God is different from man. He has mercy on whom He will have mercy.” Adesina noted.
