Several Nigerians have taken to social media to attack Popular Nigerian prophet, TB Joshua who declared that Hillary Clinton will win the American presidential election in a ‘narrow victory’ against her Republican rival Donald Trump.
Speaking to a packed congregation at The Synagogue, Church Of All Nations (SCOAN) on Sunday 6th November 2016, a service broadcast live to millions more on the popular Christian channel Emmanuel TV, Joshua said he saw the outcome in a ‘vision’ 10 days ago.
“Ten days ago, I saw the new President of America with a narrow win,” the cleric, who is renowned for his controversial prophetic abilities, began.
He described several ensuing challenges that would be faced by the new President, including “attempts to possibly pass a vote of no confidence” amidst difficulties in the passing of bills. “The boat of the new President will be rocked,” he described.
Despite his initial parabolic language, Joshua later clarified that he saw Hillary Clinton claim a hard-fought victory. “In order not to keep you in suspense, what I frankly saw is a woman,” he stated, in a message subsequently posted to his official Facebook page followed by over 2.5 million people.
However with the surprise victory for the new president elect-Donald Trump, Nigerians are blasting the popular cleric.
