I see more hardship for Nigerians in 2022, says Prophet Olagunju
Recall that Prophet Wale Olagunju has revealed that Nigerians will experience more hardship in the year 2022.
The Ibadan-based cleric, who presides over Divine Seed of God Chapel Ministries, in a 35- point prophecy, gave a list of people he described as principalities holding Nigeria to ransom and that must leave the stage as a prelude to the balkanization of the country.
Prophet Olagunju also revealed the obstacles on the way of some notable political players and parties as the nation prepares for another election year.
