Meanwhile, Nigerian popular pastor, Prophet T.B. Joshua, has denied a viral report claiming he gave a prophecy regarding the forthcoming Edo governorship election.
The cleric who is the general overseer of Synagogue Church of All Nations (SCOAN), said the report claiming he predicted the winner of the election was, ‘entirely false’.
The statement from SCOAN reads in part: “Our attention has been drawn to several articles circulating on the internet within Nigeria claiming that Prophet TB Joshua has given a prophecy regarding the upcoming governorship elections in Edo State, Nigeria.

“This story is entirely false! Prophet TB Joshua has not given any prophecy regarding this."
