The African Traditional Religion and Medicine Practitioners of Nigeria have pledged their support for the emergence of credible leaders in the forthcoming general elections.
Its president, Aare Awoyemi Abimbola Oloriawo, in an interview weekend, said his members had engaged in various spiritual assistance and sacrifices to have a peaceful and prosperous nation before, during and after the elections.
The association also called on the Federal Government to come up with a legislation that would authorise and legalise the use of traditional medicines as obtained in the orthodox medicines.
He assured that his members would not produce any destructive herbal medicine either for thugs or politicians.
According to him, all their members across the country are known for working towards attaining societal development through prayers, voluntary sacrifice and other related traditional practices.
Oloriawo added that inclusion of traditional worshipers in the scheme of things in Nigeria would balance the three legs of religions upon which the country stands.
