A prophecy by Prophet Temitope Aduroja, who predicted Goodluck Jonathan’s defeat in 2015, that the 2019 general elections will be postponed has come to pass.
“Year 2019 presidential election will not hold in February as proposed by INEC. It is going to be postponed to another month,” number one of his twenty-eight prophecies for the year 2019 read.
“2019 Presidential election will be tough and at the same time, it’s going to be interesting more than year 2015 election. Many dramas will begin to unfold between now till Election Day.
“Northerners will shock Nigerians in the coming presidential election. The results of some Northern States will surprise many people. It’s going to be contrary to expectations cum popular belief.
“I see a new President in Nigeria in year 2019. He’s going to win at least 20 States out of 36. This is going to shock many people. The incumbent President will have no choice than to accept defeat,” had predicted.
A fact check by Naija News shows that the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) postponed the Presidential and the National Assembly elections by one week earlier today rather than the one month as stated by Prophet Aduroja in January.
Giving a reason for the decision, Prof. Mahmood Yakubu said the decision was taken after a careful review of the plan for the exercise.
“Following a careful review of the implementation of its logistics and operational plan and the determination to conduct free, fair and credible elections, the commission came to the conclusion that proceeding with the elections as scheduled is no longer feasible,” he said.
“Consequently, the commission has decided to reschedule the Presidential and National Assembly Elections to Saturday, 23 February 2019.
“Furthermore, the Governorship, State House of Assembly and Federal Capital Territory (FCT) Area Council Elections is rescheduled to Saturday 9th March 2019. This will afford the Commission the opportunity to address identified challenges in order to maintain the quality of our elections,” Yakubu said.
