Soul E had prophesied that Nollywood actor-turned-politician, Desmond Elliot had little chances of winning the forthcoming Lagos State House of Assembly election
Entertainer turned pastor, Soul E, who received criticisms over his 2015 prophesies which he posted on Facebook , has said his predictions are not to seek attention but are revelations from God.
Soul E had prophesied that Nollywood actor-turned-politician, Desmond Elliot had little chances of winning the forthcoming Lagos State House of Assembly election.
In an interview with Punch newspaper, Soul E said he had nothing against the Nollywood actor but just said what was revealed to him by God.
“I have nothing against Desmond Elliot, we are not friends and we are not enemies. When I prophesy, I don’t do it because I want attention, neither do I do it because I want people to listen to me. By the grace of God, last year, we went to 17 nations preaching the gospel. Prophecy is for prayers and for people to know the mind of God. It amazes me the way Nigerians abuse men of God over prophecies. I am not saying that Desmond Elliot will win or not but what I saw in the vision was that he has a very slim chance of winning. His case is like a camel passing through the eye of a needle. I spoke in parables but when I saw it online, they claimed that I said he would lose. I really don’t care.”
Soul E also predicted that 2015 elections would be a repetition of the June 12, 1993 election, and lots of surprises.
“There were so many things I saw but did not post online. I saw so many top comedians retrogressing while the young ones will come up because of their pride. Because they have sold out shows with a lot of people attending, they have become proud, forgetting that the same God that put them up can bring them down. I also saw that this election will spring up a lot of surprises and it will be like June 12. This election will not be different from the 1993 election because the person that will truly win will not get on the throne.”
According to Punch, Desmond Elliot responded to Soul E's comment via text, saying that the prophet may have had his reasons for predicting his election chances.
He said, “If he said that, I am sure he has his reasons. I count myself blessed and fortunate to be given the opportunity to even aspire, scale through the primaries and contest. And when victory is given, I will be humble enough to render service to my constituents and state. What an honour indeed.”
