Prophet T.B. Joshua has broken his long silence on national issues.
Prophet Temitope Joshua of The Synagogue Church Of All Nations (SCOAN).
The revered prophet released some prophecies to his congregation on Sunday, February 19 which was broadcast live on the SCOAN’s official TV station – Emmanuel TV.
He particularly focused on the health challenges of President Muhammadu Buhari, urging Nigerians to pray for their leader.
His words: “I have some burning issues which I want to share with you. Your president has good intentions, but good intentions cannot be carried out alone without good followers.
“The priority of every Nigerian citizen now is the good health of your president because it can be anyone’s turn tomorrow. What you wish for others, God makes happen to you.
“More importantly, we also have to rise up and pray that the Lord should give us the grace to sustain democracy. Pray for an uninterrupted democracy.”
He noted that some Nigerians might not be comfortable with his statements, but added he was “okay with that”.
He called on his congregants to rise up in prayer for President Muhammadu Buhari, praying specifically for “strength where is weakness”.
Speaking on Nigeria’s democracy, Prophet Joshua said: “More importantly, we also have to rise up and pray that the Lord should give us the grace to sustain democracy. Pray for an uninterrupted democracy.”
President Buhari has been in London since January 19. The presidency had first announced that he was there for a 10-day leave. But he has since extended the leave on medical grounds prompting speculations that all may not be well with him.
