Most of us know the Founder of the Evangelical Church of Yahweh, Primate Theophilus Olabayo, too well for his razorsharp predictions. He is indeed a sharp shooter when it comes to talking about events that will occur in the year in advance.
Tribune engaged the Prophet at his church headquarters in Lagos, with a view to getting an idea what to look forward to in the new year. Let’s settle down and read:
-On the governor of Osun State, Rauf Aregbesola
The governor of Osun State, Rauf Aregbesola risks being kidnapped in the New Year. Aside risking being kidnapped, the governor could also be killed. Governor Rauf Aregbesol has to be watchful so that they will not kidnap and kill him in the New Year. He has to be very careful so that he can survive the year.
-On President Goodluck Jonathan’s administration
Goodluck Jonathan’s administration will not go beyond 2015. There might not be a general election in 2015 but the North would have the opportunity to produce the next president. Come 2015, they will not allow President Jonathan to rule because power is going back to the North, if at all there would be elections.We have to pray as a people so that there will be election in 2015. If the situation gets worse, there may not be election in 2015. President Goodluck Jonathan’s second term is dicey. He will start some political abracadabra in order to gain his second term which will be characterised by so much of negotiations. He will have to cajole and beg a lot of people; he will also beg Obasanjo. What Nigerians see now is only a tip of the iceberg of the clash that will come between Obasanjo and Jonathan. At the same time, I want to tell you that when Jonathan eventually gets his second term, there will be crisis.”
-On Other Things To Expect
In the New Year, some of the old monarchs would go because they would meet their ancestors. Alhaji Usman Shehu Shagari should pray so that he can survive the New Year. Also the year will witness one of the greatest floods of our time and there will be mass killings, accidents both on the road and in the air. 2014 is a year that we need to be very prayerful because there is going to be epidemics all over the country, while there will be famine as the prices of food items would go up beyond the reach of the poor.
Governors of APC states have to be vigilant as attempts would be made to make these states, especially in the South-West ungovernable and all efforts would be made to take over Osun, Ondo, Oyo, Ogun, Edo and Ekiti states.
Governor Rauf Aregbesola of Osun State has to be watchful so that they will not kidnap and kill him in the New Year. He has to be very careful so that he can survive the year.
-On 2015 Election
We must put things right. Before the recent governorship election in Anambra State, I predicted that APGA would win the election and that they would try to rig it in favour of another party. Similarly in 2014, they will like to take over the South-West geopolitical zone but it will not be possible. They will create troubles upon troubles. There is so much arms and ammunition piled up in the country because we are inviting trouble for ourselves. And, ironically, what is happening in the general public is happening in the religious houses as well, because the church itself is corrupt.
-On national conference
Political leaders of the country may like to use the conference to manipulate this country. Though I have predicted all these things in the past but the chairman has to be watchful so that he will be able to succeed where others have failed in the past. But God told me that they will make things difficult for him and it shall stall their elections. If the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) tries to rig the election in its favour in the nearest future, the country would be thrown into crisis of monumental dimension.
-On face-off between Major Hamza Al-Mustapha and former President Olusegun Obasanjo
I think the young man cannot fight Obasanjo because the former president was his very senior colleague in the army and in fairness to the young man I think it was Obasanjo that first attacked him verbally. I think since Major Al-Mustapha came out of the prison custody, he loves Nigeria and it is doubtful if he can be training anybody to harm anyone.
-On possibility of a new Nigeria
Yes, a new Nigeria will be born, a great Nigeria will be born where the citizens shall sleep with their two eyes closed and no evil shall befall this country, I assure you. The President should stop the ongoing face-off with Governor Rotimi Amaechi of Rivers State so that the war will not start from Rivers State.
Nigerians should rejoice because tough times do not last but tough people do. They should rejoice. President Jonathan needs to repent. Even before the wife fell sick, it was in my church that we prayed for her that she would not die. But I will not go to him and say we will pray for him because we love Nigeria.
