The founder and general overseer of the Synagogue Church of All Nations (SCOAN) Prophet T.B Joshua, had predicted the postponement of the presidential election.
Naija News had reported that the Chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), Prof. Mahmood Yakuku had on Saturday morning announced the postponement of the presidential election.
In an article circulated on several news sites earlier this week, Joshua stated on Sunday 10th February 2019, that “The Nigerian election may likely be postponed because of many challenges. In whatever way, God is in control.”
He appealed for calm and equally warned troublemakers to be wary of their actions.
He added, “Those who will cause trouble will see trouble and those who will cause peace will see peace,” explaining that the aftermath of the election would “look very fearful.”
“You will see the clouds so dark as if it’s about to rain – but suddenly the dark cloud disappears,” he described.
“If the people of Nigeria want to cause trouble, they will cause trouble for themselves but the nation of Nigeria will stand,” Joshua concluded, adding that Africa’s most populated nation “has a very strong bond with God”.
Also, in a video posted to YouTube on December 10th 2018, which has been viewed almost 200,000 times, the cleric is also seen calling on congregants to “pray against a stop-over” and for a “smooth democracy” for Nigeria.
