The prophet says his prediction was not based on sentiments but was a divine message from the Almighty God.
“I fasted for Governor Seyi Makinde for 45 days and nights for him to emerge as the Governor of Oyo State. Some important personalities in his government are quite aware of this even though they did not even bother to appreciate it. I can mention Senator Hosea Agboola, Niyi Farinto, and others."

Prophet Olagunju during the radio show also claimed that he was the one who counselled the incumbent governor to join the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) where he eventually emerged victorious.

The Prophet said:
“God told me things, problems that will unfold in his administration but they refused to take my message with seriousness. He will not return for a second term.”
