The news of the postponement of the 2019 election by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) over logistics constraints has been met with shock by many Nigerians.
Much more to this is how the founder and general overseer of the Synagogue Church of All Nations (SCOAN) Prophet T.B Joshua had predicted the postponement about 6 days before.
In a video uploaded on church’s Youtube page, Emmanuel TV, on Sunday, February 10, 2019, the man of God said:
“The Nigerian election may likely be postponed because of many challenges. In whatever way, God is in control.
“Those who will cause trouble will see trouble and those who will cause peace will see peace. You will see the clouds so dark as if it’s about to rain – but suddenly the dark cloud disappears.
“If the people of Nigeria want to cause trouble, they will cause trouble for themselves but the nation of Nigeria will stand,” the man of God says as he adds that Nigeria “has a very strong bond with God”.
The man of God however urged the congregation to “pray against a stop-over” and for a “smooth democracy” for Nigeria.
