Legit. ng reports that Atiku and Obi lost at the Presidential Election Petitions Tribunal (PEPT) and recently approached Nigeria's apex court to challenge the verdict.
But Iginla said:
“Prophetically, way forward. I thank God for the great fight from His Excellency, Alhaji Atiku, and our great man, Peter Obi. They are wonderful men. They have proven that yes, we can wrestle. I’m just telling you as a prophet what I see.
“If you go to the Supreme Court, after everything, you are still going to get the same thing that you have now. That is it. I know you will attack me. If I were them, I would spend my time preparing for 2027.”
Cleric prophesies who will come out disappointed
In an earlier report by Legit. ng, Prophet David Kingleo Elijah, the spiritual leader of the Glorious Mount of Possibility Church, also predicted that Atiku and Obi would be disappointed in their petitions against Tinubu in court.
While Atiku, a former vice-president, represents the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Obi, an erstwhile governor of Anambra state, flies the Labour Party's (LP) flag.
Both men contested for the presidency during Nigeria's last general election, in February 2023, and came second and third respectively.
APC chieftain makes prediction
Legit. ng also reported that Williams Dakwom, a member of the All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential campaign council (PCC) in Plateau state, predicted that Atiku and Obi would suffer defeat at the Supreme Court.
Dakwom, in a chat with Legit.ng, said Tinubu would emerge victorious at the Supreme Court just like he did at the presidential tribunal.
