Every year, Nigerians expect to know what various pastors and clergies believe the year holds. The yearly prophecies made by these clergies are usually anticipated and insightful.
History has shown us that while some of these predictions actually came to pass, others did not. Here are the predictions that actually came true in 2015.
1. Rev. Fr. Mbaka:
At the beginning of 2015, he said, "Jonathan has ruled for six years. We need change. NEPA is not working because of corruption. The privatization of public companies has not yielded any fruit because of corruption. Nigerians are sick and tired of wasting innocent lives without government doing enough to stop the destruction,” while predicting that Buhari will emerge victorious.
2. Paul Okikijesu
The Lagos prophet also spoke on the elections. “If it is Buhari that believes that I am alive and surrender his heart to Me, he will win the election. Nevertheless despite people’s mandate they will neither release power to him nor swear him in as the president of the nation. His situation will be similar to Abiola that had people’s mandate, but was not given the chance to rule the country," he said.
3. Primate Elijah Ayodele
The founder of INRI Spiritual Evangelical Church gave prediction on football. “I see NFF having problems with Keshi. As a matter of fact, Keshi might not finish his tenure.” The country’s football association sacked Stephen Keshi as coach on July 5, 2015
4. Apostle Johnson Sulieman
In his 2015 prophecies, Apostle Suleiman said, “APC Rivers state needs to do grass root campaign because I saw the election been rigged for PDP. Prayers are needed because of so much bloodshed.” Governor Nyesom Wike defeated Dakuku Peterside of the All Progressives Congress in the April 11 gubernatorial polls to emerge as the governor. However the election tribunal recently cancelled his election.
5. Pastor Adeboye
Pastor E.A. Adeboye of the Redeemed Christian Church of God prophesied the final death of the deadly Ebola virus which has killed 11,300 since December 2013. He also warned that God said the world should pray against “massive calamities, massive earthquakes and strong hurricanes and typhoons.”
6. Matthew Ashimolowo
The founder of the largest pentecostal church in the UK, Kingsway International Christian Centre (KICC), predicted the rise and fall of Biafra in 2015. He said in January 2015, "For us to have many nations that make up Nigeria, it was God that made it happen. And that prophetic mandate still remains on Nigeria. Anyone who incites people to divide this nation will lose his chance. Nigeria will remain one. After all the noise, you will be amazed that also some politicians will be shocked, nobody will be ready to die for them. There will be peace in Nigeria after the election."
