Ardent supporters of President Muhammadu Buhari believe that the president is a victim of “diabolical machinations.”
This was the submission of the president’s supporters when Daily Trust spoke to them recently on the medical vacation of President Buhari.
Nasiru Aminu, a resident of Katsina, said many people were deploying diabolical means to distract Buhari from concentrating on his duties.
His words: “The president was not as frail as he is now when he assumed office in 2015, that time, he was extremely agile and focused but he is no more himself now and we actually see the devil at work.”

Aminu said Buhari’s adversaries had deployed “prayer merchants to cause curses” that would make it difficult to concentrate.
“The opposition to the president is not just from southern Nigeria because hundreds of so-called Mallams are being sponsored to Saudi Arabia and other places to pray against the success of the president,” he added.
Another supporter, Abba Yakubu, said the president was “tamed” right from the onset.
His words: “We know that his several travels abroad at the inception of his administration were not normal, some unpatriotic elements tagged him through dubious means to be traveling and when he finally settled, they changed tactics, he is now constantly sick.”
Strange stories from the Presidential Villa are not new. Former first lady, Patience Jonathan, had reportedly said her health status significantly improved after her husband vacated the seat of power.
Three months ago, Reuben Abati, the spokesman of former president Goodluck Jonathan, wrote an explosive article about the Aso Rock presidential villa and its many dirty secrets. Abati revealed that there are spiritual forces disturbing Nigerian presidents from performing their functions.
But in response to Abati’s article, President Buhari’s spokesman, Femi Adesina dismissed Abati’s claims, describing his article as “a glorification and deification of superstition.”
On his part, the chairman of the Christian Association of Nigeria Southwest Zone, Archbishop Magnus Atilade believes Abati’s claims should be taken seriously.
His words: "If principalities and power have not occupied Aso Rock, how would you explain the actions of some of our leaders that have at one time or the other been the landlords at Aso Rock, even including the present landlord there?
"Some of our leaders before getting to Aso Rock would make a lot of promises to Nigerians but on getting to Aso Rock, they become changed persons, they become inaccessible, and Nigerians now become baffled as to what has gotten over them.
"Of course, it is those principalities, and demons that are responsible. We need to carry out spiritual cleansing of Aso Rock.”
