As Nigeria inches closer to the 2023 presidential elections, some electorates are still itching to see their spiritual leaders like pastors and Imams play a major role in deciding who they will vote for. Spiritual leaders usually urge their followers to vote for certain candidates based on conviction and prophecies. The 2023 general elections might not be an exception.
DAILY POST reports that prior to the 2015 elections, the Spiritual Director of Adoration Ministry, Enugu, Rev Father Ejike Mbaka, had prophesied the emergence of Muhammadu Buhari as Nigeria’s president.
Despite backlash from Nigerians, Mbaka had insisted that Buhari would win the presidential election, which he eventually did.
Our correspondent observed that with another election season around the corner, spiritual leaders are beginning to point their followers on the path to follow.
David Ibiyeomie of the Salvation Ministry, had cautioned Nigerians against voting for the wrong political party in 2023. He warned that the naira would double to N5, 000 if Nigerians voted for the wrong political party in 2023.
A pastor of the Christ Apostolic Church (CAC) Abule Egba, Lagos, had disclosed that the All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential candidate, Bola Tinubu, would win the 2023 presidential election.
Pastor Alamu David said God showed him that Tinubu will succeed President Muhammadu Buhari in 2023.
While some pastors openly and privately endorse their preferred presidential candidates, the General Superintendent of Deeper Life Bible Church, Pastor William Kumuyi, and his counterpart from the Redeemed Christian Church of God, RCCG, Pastor Enoch Adeboye said God had not told them anything about the elections. Adeboye said he was not sure if the 2023 elections would hold.
On his part, controversial Islamic cleric, Sheikh Ahmad Gumi, had said Nigeria needs an experienced politician to take over the reign of governance from President Muhammadu Buhari in 2023.
