Ghanaian prophet predicts Osinbajo will become Nigeria’s president this year

  • Mbaka warns youths may end Buhari regime

Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo (SAN) will emerge president of Nigeria this year, according to the Founder of Prophetic Hill Chapel of Ghana, Prophet Nigel Gaisie.

The cleric made another shocking prediction of the eventual outcome of the Ghanaian presidential poll conducted last year, which was won by the incumbent, Nana Akufo-Addo.

He said, Akofo-Addo’s challenger and former president, John Mahama would triumph (maybe in court) and become the new president.

The predictions were reportedly delivered by the preacher during the crossover service into 2021 on Thursday.

“Nigeria’s Vice President Yemi Osinbajo will become president,” Gaisie declared, without giving any further detail how this could happen.

The next general election will come up in 2023 not 2021 and Vice-President Osinbajo has not indicated any interest in contesting for the election.

Some pastors have also made some predictions for the current year but not said anything close to Osinbajo becoming Nigeria’s president.

For instance, Primate Elijah Ayodele of the INRI Evangelical Spiritual Church only said a northerner would still emerge as the nation’s next president in 2023.

Like Pastor Enoch Adeboye of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, what Primate Ayodele only said about 2021 was about the ravaging coronavirus and the effects of the vaccines being developed to contain it, nothung about presidency or the seat of power (Aso Rock).

Only the Catholic priest and Spiritual Director of Adoration Ministries, Enugu, Nigeria (AMEN), Rev Fr Ejike Mbaka, hinted at a possible end to the Muhammadu Buhari administration when he predicted that protesting youths might again move against the regime should it fail to improve Nigerians’ living conditions.

He said in his new year prophesy, “The Holy Spirit of God asked me to warn the government of the day to be very careful; to change policies and take care of the youths without politicising their (youths’) condition.

“That the government should rise and urgently create jobs and innovate opportunities that would benefit the youths of the nation because they have suffered so much.

“Don’t politicise the condition of the youths, otherwise, they will arise and end the political system.

“Should the government fail to do so as soon as possible that time is coming when the youths will rise against the government, and that any attempt to stop them will end the government?”

Mbaka, however, did not specify when the youth agitation would take place.

He said, “I can see a year ahead; it is not specific whether it is in 2021 that this will happen, but it is within a time in the time of life, that the anger of God will befall many people in the political circle because they have looted so much and disgraced this nation enough.

“Those who should be serving the country have looted the country dry for their personal aggrandizement, such that our children and grandchildren no longer have a future.”

Meanwhile, Gaisie also said though the world would enjoy peace, he predicted that a terrorist attack would again take place in the United States of America.

“The world will enjoy peace, but America will have a terrorist attack,” he said.

On the outcome of the presidential election in Ghana, Gaisie said John Mahama would “sit in the office of the President”.

Ondo gov poll: Tribunal dismisses Jegede petition

Published

on

The Ondo Election Petitions Tribunal in Akure on Tuesday threw out the petition challenging the victory of Governor Oluwarotimi Akeredolu in last year’s governorship election for want of jurisdiction.

Candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, Eyitayo Jegede, had filed the petition seeking to be declared winner of the election on the grounds that Governor Akeredolu was not properly nominated by the All Progressives Congress.

Justice Abubakar Umar, who delivered the judgment, said Jegede had no justification to interfere in the internal affairs of the APC.

He said, “Issue raised therein in this petition are settled issue of internal affairs and Management of a political party which this Tribunal has no Jurisdiction.”

He dismissed the petition for lacking in merit.

The tribunal declared Akeredolu and his Deputy, Lucky Aiyedatiwa, as duly elected in the October 10 governorship election.

Governor Akeredolu hailed Ondo residents for the confidence reposed in his administration and urged Jegede to join him in developing the state, saying there was no need for further litigation.

Why northern governors opposed Jonathan’s second term bid – Babangida Aliyu

Published

on

Former governor of Niger State, Dr Mu’azu Babangida Aliyu, has said northern governors rose against former President Goodluck Jonathan’s second term bid in 2015 because of the perceived threat of his victory to the North.

Aliyu said in Minna on Friday that the northern governors felt at the time that their part of the country stood in a disadvantaged position and would be shortchanged should Jonathan win a re-election.

He claimed that Jonathan had earlier reached an agreement with the north to complete what was left of the tenure of the late President Umaru Yar’Adua and then run for only one term.

He said the ex-president’s insistence on going for another term in 2015 was against the agreement he had with the northern governors.

“Following the sudden passage of President Umaru Musa Yar’Adua on May 5, 2010, the leadership of the then governing Peoples Democratic Party along with the state governors under the flagship of the party had series of meetings on the presidency and the future of our great party,” he said.

The ex-governor also said, “All the governors in the North under the PDP supported the then Vice President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan to complete the remaining years of Yar’Adua’s tenure and to contest the next presidential election as a sole candidate of our great party.

“However, midway, President Goodluck Jonathan insisted to run for the office in 2015 against the grain of our earlier agreement.

“Since this was against the grain of our earlier agreement in the party, and which we the governors in the north felt the North would have been shortchanged if Jonathan had succeeded, we rose stoutly to insist on the agreement we all had.

“On that premise, we opposed Jonathan. But all along, Goodluck Jonathan had enjoyed every support from the governors in the north and the entire region.”

The former governor said it was wrong for anyone to say that he opposed Goodluck Jonathan.

He added that as the chairman of the Northern Governors Forum then, it was his responsibility to tell the people about the stand of the governors.
