On the forthcoming Ugie Festival Prince Ogievie 1 said: “this year’s edition of the Ugie Festival is as it is usual in every edition coming with good tidings for all and sundry.
“The mystery pond will attend to every issue that guests bring before it. You either get a necklace, candle, chaplet, handkerchief, olive oil, chain, holy water etc that is appropriate to solve whatever problem a guest is facing.
“Many prophecies would be given on the way forward for Nigeria and Nigerians. Just bring your problem and watch as the gods give you a permanent solution to whatever it is the problem confronting you ranging from fruit of the womb, job security, enduring love and marriage, wealth creation without ritual, good health, success in all undertakings etc.
“In the past many people with different ailments have received their healings from the mystery pond in my house.”
Going forward he revealed that “since late 2019, the ancestors have revealed who will succeed Godwin Obaseki as the next governor of Edo State. But I am not too keen to make public the revelation at this moment as I feel that it is too early to do so.”
