They have received their own portion of the national cake and now it is time for them to perform their duties.
This is the case with South Western Royal fathers reportedly bribed by President Jonathan to lure their people to vote for him.
Yesterday, the troubled President travelled to Ile Ife Osun State Nigeria to meet with Oba Okunade Sijuwade, the Ooni of Ife for a strategy meeting with selected royal fathers in the South West.
It was alleged that the royal fathers performed a prayer ritual for the President seeking re-election in the upcoming March 28 elections.
During the ritual, GEJ was made to sit on a mat of Oduduwa (a mat representing all Yoruba states) and told to make a wish, while the corrupt kings point their ‘Opa Ase’ rod of command to the President declaring as you have said so shall it be.
This was made known by Presidential aide, Reuben Abati yesterday in a Tweet that states:
“Yoruba Obas praying for President Jonathan at the palace of the Ooni of Ife, March 7. #”Bi e ti wi lo ma ri.”
Early February, GEJ spent five days in Lagos where he distributed dollar bribes to some royal fathers to strengthen his re-election.
Few weeks after he was stoned out of the North, President Jonathan has been parading South Western states like a wandering child in a bid to occupy Aso Rock for another four years.
