Barely three weeks to the 2011 general elections in Nigeria, Prophet Temitope Balogun Joshua of the Synagogue Church of All Nations, has warned that serious prayers will be needed for the elections to take place.
With billions of naira already spent by thousands of candidates and many hours invested in campaign trains, a warning by the man who predicted the outcome of the Ghanaian election two years ago may send shiver down the spine of many.
In an exclusive interview to be published in the next edition of TheNews magazine, the man in the Synagogue, as TB Joshua is known, warned that only serious prayers will â€œmake April a realityâ€.
He said: â€œAbout the upcoming elections, I have said many times that I donâ€™t like talking about Nigeria again because all the messages God has given me about Nigeria, nobody has bothered to come and ask me, â€˜what are you saying? Explain more so that we know the next step to takeâ€™.
â€œBut I know that we need a lot of prayers to make April a reality. I said it earlier and you can see what is happening now, bomb blasts all over the place, court cases all over the place and so on, so like I said, we need a lot of prayers to make April a reality.â€
In the interview, TB Joshua also spoke about the likely winner of the presidential election, if the polls eventually hold.
