TRADITIONAL Religion worshippers in the State of Osun have disclosed that the removal of fuel subsidy was endorsed by Ifa oracle, adding that it will bring blessings if people can endure. 

President of Traditional Religion Worshippers Association (TRAWSO), Dr. Oluseyi Atanda, while speaking at a medical outreach organised for its members in Osogbo, on Tuesday, said Ifa supported the decision of President Bola Tinubu but harps on transparency in the process.


According to Atanda, though the decision is a difficult one and brings hardship on the people, there is the need for the citizens to endure in order to enjoy the tremendous benefits that will come with the decision.

He said: “Ifa supported that the decision to remove subsidy is a good one, but the government must be sincere and do things the proper way, so that at the end of the day, you don’t act in a way that shows or seems that the people who are enduring the pain feel taken for granted.

“It (Ifa) further revealed that what follows the tough decision of subsidy removal is tremendous blessing if the people can persevere, hence, we urge the populace to support the decision of President Bola Tinubu and should collectively monitor the actions of public office holders in order to cater for the critical needs of the people.”

Atanda urged traditional religion adherents to take proper care of their health, saying rampant issues of sudden death was as a result of negligence by the people.

“We realise that over the last few months, the issue of sudden death has become a societal problem which affects everyone and could be due to diabetes and high blood pressure.

“We feel that traditionalists should also be aware that there is a need for them to check their blood pressure and know what is happening in their body, hence the reason we decided to organise the medical outreach in celebration of the second anniversary of the current executive members of the association”, he stated.
