About a week ago, Nigerian president, Muhammadu Buhari in an interview, described the Igbos in the Southeast as “dot in the circle“. This provocative remark didn’t go down well with the Ndigbo community.
However, The ministerial leader of the World Zionist Union in Southeast Nigeria, Prophet, Godfrey Gbujie has called on Ndigbo to forgive the recent scathing remark of ‘a dot in a circle’ made against by President Muhammadu Buhari in a TV interview.
The Igbo had been vexed by the President’s description of the Southeast region in such a manner in a TV interview on June 10, 2021, with the warning that the Igbo are scattered everywhere in Nigeria with their businesses and properties located everywhere, which meant they were highly relevant to the nation.
But, in a statement issued in Enugu weekend, Prophet Gbujie appealed to the Igbo people to forgive the president and understand that everything happening in the country currently is an act of God.
The cleric said, “I feel irresistibly persuaded to hereby ministerially, passionately and knowledgeably appeal to the much aggrieved Ndigbo to more Christianly understand, appreciate the plight of and forgive His Excellency our spiritually overwhelmed President Muhammadu Buhari’s unpresidential verbal declaration of June 10, 2021, where he referred to Southeast as ‘a dot in the circle’.
“This ministerial appeal is motivated by my appreciable insight into and understanding of the mysteries of the long-prophesied and graphically unfolding ‘plan of divine intervention in Nigeria’s affairs’ as they incorporate and affect his (Buhari’s) personality, presidential and governmental roles which he can neither fully understand, alter nor fail to execute.”
“Therefore, let us understand and appreciate the spiritual and socio-political plight, disabilities and helplessness of His Excellency, President Muhammadu Buhari – most of whose erroneous presidential policies, actions and utterances are compliant to the revealed plan of God.
“Let us stop blaming him for the negativities because he is only a mere ‘human vessel of service to god’ and cannot wriggle himself out of the mysterious ‘spiritual web’ in which he helplessly find himself.
“Rather, I appeal for both private and collective spiritual intercession to God for divine mercy and grace to enable him to successfully finish his own part and role in the divinely scripted and unfolding “national socio-political tragicomedy,” he added.
