President Goodluck Jonathan has been warned to be wary of sabotage and cabals in his government that are secretly plotting to destroy his good intention for the country.

This is coming on the heels of avalanche of complaints by Nigerians on the alleged non-performance of the present administration since it assumed office in 2011.

A cleric, Apostle Babatunde Oyidi, who made previous predictions on the country, cautioned the president not to allow himself to be pushed by his associates but to allow of God's direction to prevail in order for him to transform the country and uplift the standard of living of the Nigerian masses.

Speaking to journalists after an award bestowed on him by C.A.C Word and Life Ministries in Sango, Ogun State, Tuesday, Oyidi claimed that Nigeria had been soiled with blood of the innocent and there would need to be prayerful to cleanse the country in order to experience meaningful development.

He said: "I told the President that Aso Rock is possessed with evil spirits. Our past leaders like the late Sani Abacha had buried charms in the seat of power and any President who assumes office with good intentions would fail because the spirit would cause confusion to turn them against the masses. The powerful charms had made it impossible for successive governments to lead successfully. Until Aso Rock is divinely cleansed, nothing can happen.

"Most of our leaders illegally got to the throne because during election a lot of people are killed for them to achieve their dreams. Now the land is soiled with blood and the blood of the innocent is crying."

He however accused the Nigerian Police Force as a major threat to the security situation in the country, saying if they are not forced to respect the law, nobody including the president would be safe in the country.
