Former Super Eagles defender, Taribo West, has sparked reactions on social media over his failed prophecy that United States President, Donald Trump, would defeat Joe Biden.
Taribo West, who is also a pastor predicted in a viral video that Trump would defeat Biden by a slim margin.
He rightly predicted the victory of Edo State Governor, Godwin Obaseki; and his Ondo State counterpart, Rotimi Akeredolu.
“Before the election in Edo State, I said Obaseki would win. Is that true? Did he win? Nobody said it anywhere. Nobody quoted me anywhere.
“Now, I want you to put this out the way I want it. Donald Trump will win the election by a slight split edge over Joe Biden. So, quote me and I want it to be out before time, the ex-football star was quoted as saying.
However, Biden won the US presidential election which is being challenged in court by Trump’s campaign.
West’s prophecy has since generated reactions from Nigerians on social media who are now mocking him.
