The men of God whose prophecies never came to pass
• How Nigeria’s foremost clerics shot blanks with their 2016 predictions
If you leave it to Nigeria’s prophets, the human race may well become extinct before the end of every year. Like fatal men, forever doomed to inspire hopelessness and terror the affairs of men, self-styled men of God issue doomsday prophecies like they are going out of fashion, every year. In 2016 for instance, several interesting characters made daring predictions. Famous Catholic priest, Reverend Fr. Ejike Mbaka raised the alarm over what he called a plot to assassinate President Muhammadu Buhari in 2016.
The controversial cleric and spiritual leader of Adoration Ministry, said there will be a plot to assassinate President Muhammadu Buhari in 2016. “Many people are planning, as it is revealed, to kill Buhari. There are many plans on how to eliminate his life so that corruption, embezzlement will continue. By the end of this year, Buhari will expose the names of the people who looted money meant for our roads,” he said. Also Pastor Enoch Adeboye, General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, said that a new STD will emerge in 2016, as part of his prophecies. Temitope Joshua, the general overseer of The Synagogue Church Of All Nations, also predicted that the United States Democratic Party candidate, Hillary Clinton, will win the US presidential election but alas, Republican candidate, Donald Trump, won the election.
Apostle Johnson Suleiman of the Omega Fire Ministry declared that Governor El-Rufai will die if he does not revoke the controversial preaching bill he came up with. Likewise, Prophet Joshua Iginla, the general overseer of Abuja-based Champions Royal Assembly, predicted that the Queen of England may die. Regardless of their doomsday prophecies, the subjects of their dark predictions live on the sunny side of life, even as you read. But despite the failures of their 2016 prophecies, the self-styled men of God have issued their prophecies for current year. Highlife will keep you posted on their interesting predictions for 2017.
