Herbalists in Ekiti State have endorsed President Goodluck Jonathan for a second term.
The herbalists, about 4000 of them from the 16 Local Government areas, under the auspices of National Association of Nigerian Traditional Medicine Practitioners, converged for prayers on Friday.
At the meeting, they also warned politicians against bloodshed in the coming elections and advised clerics to stop prophesying doom for the country.
The body’s State Chairman, Chief Jacob Orisamika, who briefed newsmen said:“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 also said: “We want to state unequivocally that Nigeria won’t witness any bloodshed or cease to exist after this election. Though, there may be some pocket of skirmishes, but we shall overcome and continue to forge ahead as a nation,”
