The pastor, however, had predicted that Tinubu of the All Progressives Congress (APC) would emerge winner of the 2023 presidential election.
In a video posted on his YouTube channel on February 19, 2023, Bishop Daniels said:
“About to be sworn in, that day, everybody that said he (Tinubu) is the next president will be rejoicing, and they will be saying, I told you, prophets that don’t see far will start telling you that, didn’t I tell you that Tinubu is the next president? At that event, it looks like a very open ground, like a stadium-like centre, while at that event, military men will come in, and they will arrest Tinubu.”
Peter Obi will succeed Buhari – Indabosky
Another pastor on the list of those who made inaccurate prophecies is Prophet Chukwuemeka Odumeje of the Mountain of Holy Ghost Intervention and Deliverance Ministry, Onitsha, Anambra state.
Speaking with reporters after a church service in March 2023, the controversial prophet said:
“Peter Obi will succeed Buhari. That is what God revealed to me. Nigerians will be happy because of it. That is what the spirit has told me.”
“Peter Obi will wipe tears from the eyes of Nigerians, and everything will be alright; because they will forget their past worries. They will be quick to forget about bad leadership because Obi will bring good governance.”
No inauguration for Tinubu, Atiku or Obi, It will be interim government from May 29 - Chidi
Prophet Godfrey Chidi said neither President Bola Tinubu, Atiku Abubakar, Peter Obi, or any other presidential candidate from the 2023 general would be sworn in on May 29.
The convener of the Holy National Covenant of Divine Intervention in Nigeria’s Affairs disclosed this in a three-page release issued to journalists in Enugu in July 2022.
“Neither Alhaji Abubakar Atiku of PDP nor Bola Tinubu of APC nor Mr Peter Obi of LP or any other 2023 presidential candidate” shall be inaugurated as the elected President of Nigeria in 2023.”
