Pastors and prophets who gave wrong prophesy over the just concluded election. Also read to know their fake prophecies

Many Nigerian pastors and prophecies are
like Siamese twins . There is hardly any
salient issue they don ’ t make prophesy on.
But most times, the fabulous predictions ,
usually attributed to inspiration from God ,
are always inaccurate.
The last presidential election received
several unsolicited prophecies which
particularly targeted President Muhammadu
Buhari of the All Progressives Congress and
Alhaji Atiku Abubakar of the Peoples
Democratic Party . Though the predictions
appeared scary and laughable, they later
turned out to be wide of the mark .
One of the prophecy merchants is a
Nigerian pastor based in South Africa,
Samuel Akinbodunse . The dark -skinned
cleric in a video , which circulated on the
Internet weeks before electioneering ,
walked with a measured spring in his step
as he spoke to the congregation inside the
capacious Freedom For All Nations
Outreach church.
In a finality brooking no interference, he
told the ecstatic congregation , “ Please
Nigerians warn Buhari that he is going
beyond his boundary . That the Lord said
his tenure is once and not twice . If not , he
will not see the election o. If you know him
and how to email the Presidency of Nigeria ,
please write ( send ) him a text ( message) . If
he made ( makes ) a mistake to campaign for
elections , before they vote, he will die. ”
At this point , panic gripped some of the
congregation , who were already standing,
but clapped several times for the cleric ’ s
damning prediction that sank into the
expansive auditorium .
He continued , “And I am saying the truth, I
am saying the truth . Tell him the same
voice that spoke when people said Jonathan
would be the President of Nigeria , the same
voice is speaking to him that he must not
make that mistake. Let him eat whatever he
wants to eat inside ( the ) sugar that he is
now and leave the sugar jejely . If not , he
will die . That is just the message. I am not
afraid of… Any man who kill ( sic ) me today
him help me because eternity is waiting for
me already . If you kill me today, many
Samuels will rise tomorrow . What is the
essence of killing me because there are
many Samuels that will rise ?”
The cleric ’ s prophecy is abundantly
inaccurate as the presidential and National
Assembly elections were not only shifted
from February 16 to February 23 by the
Independent National Electoral Commission,
Buhari also participated in electioneering
with his party , and INEC later declared him
winner of the election .
Akinbodunse ’ s prediction went off the
mark as events later proved but Nigerians ,
via the social media, expectedly lashed out
at him .
On a social network site , Nairaland ,
Brightest 04 said , “ He wants to let people
know that he exists. I don ’ t blame him;
after sleeping with other people ’ s wives , he
intends to see things. I think these men
have taken God and His name as a toy ;
hence they use his name vainly . And this
stupidity is synonymous with Christians . ”

Saying he holds a degree in Systematic
Theology, Brightest 04 added , “ It baffles me
how people roughly use the name of their
creator and indeed the creator of
everything in existence in a foolish way .
These men are satanically- controlled and
the people who listen to them have to be
careful so that they don ’ t partake in their
calamities. ”
Earlier, Akinbodunse , in another sermon ,
which video gripped the Internet, said the
country ’ s next President was a youth whose
name starts with letter ‘ S ’ .
He stated that he would not say what God
didn’ t tell him, urging Buhari to step down
for the youth with a call on ex-President
Olusegun Obasanjo to support the incoming
‘ youth ’ President.
Powered by Ru Also, a pastor of the Christ Apostolic
Church, Akure, Ondo State, Simeon
Akorede, reportedly predicted Buhari ’ s
defeat in the presidential election .
Though Akorede said God didn’ t tell him
who would become the country ’ s next
president when he spoke with journalists in
Akure, he noted that God showed him that
Buhari had lost the opportunity and the
grace to rule Nigeria again .
He said , “God revealed to me that the
incumbent President Muhammadu Buhari is
not given the grace to govern Nigeria for a
second term . ”
But the results of the presidential election
released by INEC made mincemeat of
Akorede’ s prediction. The commission said
Buhari won his re- election bid polling
15, 191 , 847 votes to defeat Atiku who got
11, 262 , 978 .
The prophetic utterance of Prophet John
Ogundele of the Recreation Word Apostolic
Church, Lagos, about the presidential
election was entirely different from others .
He ruled that neither Buhari nor Atiku
would emerge winner of the election .
In a video showing him in a service / prayer
session , Ogundele stated before the
congregation , “You may be calculating in
your mind that if Buhari doesn’ t become
the President, then it will be Atiku because
Obasanjo supports him.
“Let me tell you as a prophet of God that
among Obasanjo, Atiku and Buhari and
those who you think are influential ( in the
country ) , God said He had withdrawn
power from them. None of them will get on
to the seat of power . Atiku will spend a lot
of money but the money will cause conflicts
in the country . If Atiku doesn’ t come , there
will be no new government. ”
In the number 30 of his 50 prophecies for
2019 released last December, the General
Overseer of the Omega Fire Ministries
International, Apostle Johnson Suleiman,
said , “ I saw most eastern states won by the
APC at the national level . ” By whatever
interpretation given to the prophecy , it
didn’ t come to pass as far as the last
presidential election was concerned .
Either in the number of states in the
eastern region or lawmakers produced for
the National Assembly , the PDP won most
votes and the states in the South- East , and
not the APC. From Abia, Enugu , Imo ,
Ebonyi to Anambra, Atiku dwarfed Buhari
with his acceptance and adoption in the
Like many of his past prophecies that
didn’ t come to pass , the Presiding Bishop,
Divine Seed of God Chapel Ministries,
Ibadan , Oyo State, Wale Olagunju, had
predicted several months before the
presidential election that Buhari would be
roundly defeated by Atiku .
Being based in Ibadan , the Oyo State
capital, his prophecy might have come true,
at least in the state , where Atiku
marginally defeated Buhari in the
presidential poll.
Quoting him in one of his interviews with a
national newspaper , Olagunju said , “ Let me
congratulate President Muhammadu Buhari
for winning the ticket of his party , the All
Progressives Congress , and let me also
make it clear to him that he will lose to
Atiku Abubakar . Let me also congratulate
Atiku in advance because he will win the
next presidential election come 2019.
“Let me say , as a matter of fact , that Buhari
does not need an alfa or prophet to deceive
him that he would win the election , for as
God lives , he would lose . ”
The elections have come and gone but the
outcome thoroughly faulted Olagunju’ s
For Prophet David Babalola of His Presence
Redemption Ministry International, Lagos ,
Atiku would trounce Buhari in the election .
He stated that he was on a mountain and
saw Buhari on the right and Atiku on the
He said he asked God what the vision
meant and God told him, “ I can go back for
the good to come . For you to have the best ,
that means there is bad before the good . It
is power turnaround . ’’
Babalola said , “I look at the announcement
they announced ( sic ) . They said Atiku have
( has) won the presidency . Let everyone
pray effectively that they will hand over . ’’
The cleric added that Atiku had been
ordained Nigeria ’ s President since 2012 ,
saying, “Atiku won the election. ’’
But despite the cacophony of failed
prophecies on the presidential election ,
Prophet Emmanuel Stephen of the
Mountain of Grace and Glory Ministry
Worldwide, Lagos, reeled out a prediction
which left the congregation and those who
watched the video online in a pensive
Before the poll shift , the prophet said he
saw that Atiku wanted to sit on a seat
decorated in the nation ’ s colours ; but
someone took the seat away from him and
he sat on the floor before the seat
reappeared and the incumbent President
Buhari sat majestically on it .
After the poll delay, in another online
video, the prophet stated , “ Between Atiku
and Buhari , I said something in my earlier
prophecy. As Atiku walked to sit on a
throne decorated with the country ’ s
colours , someone came and removed the
throne and he sat on the floor . Last
December, I said when the throne
reappeared ; the current President Buhari
already sat on it.
“I want to make a major comment about it
because many of those who made
comments about the video of the prophecy
online don’ t know who God is. There is a
time God will look and changed His mind .
There are several places in the Bible where
God changed his mind .
“As of December last year , I saw Buhari on
the throne as President . The surprising
thing is that even as the presidential
election is six days away , the prophecy has
not changed . The man I saw walk to the
throne is not the man that sat on it. What
makes a prophet a genuine one is the
confident of maintaining what you have
said . ” After that utterance , the video ended.
Commenting on the issue , a senior pastor at
the Glory Centre Community Church, Lagos,
Pastor Kunle Zakariya , said there were
many reasons why it appeared that some
prophecies don’ t come to pass .
He said , “ Many prophecies have been
fulfilled in the past and we cannot deny
the fact that prophecies come to pass . For
instance, Pastor Tunde Bakare of the Latter
Rain Assembly gave a prophecy about the
1992 elections that came to pass . Pastor
Enoch Adeboye has also given many
prophecies that came to pass. ”
Zakariya told SUNDAY PUNCH that
prophecies didn ’ t come to pass owing to
many reasons , ranging from fake pastors to
misinterpreting prophecies by even some
genuine men of God .
He said , “However , some prophecies do not
come to pass because God didn ’ t talk to the
person; they were probably based on the
person’ s bias . Such bias could be political ,
ethnic or logic -based . “Many times , when
one has a bias , one will think one is
hearing God but one is only hearing one ’ s
bias . At times , people don’ t hear God ; they
just make predictions by studying the
situation and wanting to predict . People
who do that are not genuine men of God .
“Another reason it looks like prophecies
don’ t come to pass is because most of
times, people don ’ t understand that
prophecy is a major school . The Bible says
that we prophesy in part because we see in
part . ”
The cleric added that there were different
stages of a prophetic word.
Zakariya said , “ You receive the prophecy,
interpret it and deliver it. Most pastors miss
it in the aspect of interpreting the
prophecy. For example, during Buhari and
the late President Umaru Yar’ Adua ’ s
tribunal tussle , a man of God saw a vision
where Yar’ Adua was wheeled out of Aso
Rock. He interpreted that because it was
the time of the tribunal Buhari would win
at the tribunal and Yar’ Adua was on his
way out of Aso Rock. He saw the right
prophecy but he interpreted wrongly . It was
later he understood that Yar’ Adua was
going to leave through sickness and it was
the typology of the wheel chair he saw . ”
He noted that a man of God could get a
prophecy and miss the interpretation
because the language pattern of God was
different from men ’ s.
“I think the lessons for all of us to know
that God is God and man is man . We also
need to know that some genuine one can
appear to miss it, where they miss it is the
interpretation , ” Zakariya stated while
buttressing his point further .
“Some prophecies also have conditions ; you
might see the prophecies and miss the
condition. For instance, somebody might
see that Buhari is going if certain things
happen. You might see that Buhari is going
but the other person see that part you
didn’ t see and you didn ’ t see that other
part . ”
The pastor added that to forestall such in
the church, pastors should unite and get a
broader view and an accurate
interpretation of prophecies before reeling
them out to the public .
He said , “ This is where I think the church
has to be united . Prophetic word from the
elders of the body of Christ should be
judged by themselves . There should be a
council. I think where they can share note ,
and then share strong and true prophetic
words for the nations . But there is no doubt
that prophesying is accurate . We have seen
it in the Bible and even in contemporary
times. Prophecies are true, people
sometimes miss the interpretation and
there are also fake pastors . ”
He further said he could not tell whether a
pastor should share a prophecy or not
because the Lord who showed them would
teach them how to administer it.

APC demands Oshiomhole ’ s resignation
On his part , an Islamic cleric , Alfa Jamal
Ahmed, said many people enjoyed saying
things to please themselves , adding that all
utterances and one ’ s ways should be
committed to God .
He said , “ If you notice, you hardly see
Islamic clerics go about saying all sorts
although few of them do so . Most times ,
those people who give all those prophecies
speak based on what they want and for the
candidates of their choice. They are not
speaking God ’ s mind . ”
