In this article I will be sharing with you 8 Nigerian Pastors and Clergymen who lied using the name of God. In the past, several Nigerian pastors and clergymen have uttered prophecies using the name of God, but to the surprise of all, such prophecies never came to pass. What went wrong? Can God be lying? No! Impossible, God can never lie.
So, if God cannot lie, then who lied? It means the prophets lied for their prophecies not coming to pass. So therefore, after a careful study and research I present to you 8 Nigerian Pastors and Clergymen who lied using the name of God.
1. Rev Fr Ejike Mbaka
The spiritual director of Adoration Ministry Enugu, Rev Fr Ejike Mbaka in 2014, prophesied that Buhari will be the best president in Nigeria and that Buhari is a God sent and that he will save Nigeria from doom, poverty and insecurity. He urge Nigerians to vote for Buhari that he is going to take the country to the promise land. Unfortunately, his prophesy ends up to be a lie, because Buhari became the worse president in Nigeria and did the opposite of what Fr Mbaka prophesied in 2014.
2. Late Prophet T.B. Joshua
The General Overseer of The Synagogue Church Of All Nations, late Prophet T.B. Joshua, told the world in November 2016 that a woman would win the United States’ presidential election. He was referring to Hillary Clinton. But to everyone’s surprise, Donald Trump won the election. In a bid to salvage his pride, Prophet T.B. Joshua said it was the prayers of Americans that saved the day.
3. Rev. Chris Okotie
The Senior Pastor of the Household of God Church Ikeja, Lagos, Rev. Chris Okotie took the nation by storm during the 2003 Presidential election in Nigeria, he told the world that God prophesied to him to contest for the presidency and that he would win. He contested then for the president under the Justice Party and was humiliated as the election was won by former President Olusegun Obasanjo. In 2007, Rev. Chris Okotie used God’s name again and emerged the flag-bearer of the Fresh Democratic Party. He was defeated by the late President Umaru Musa Yar’Adua. In 2014, Rev. Chris Okotie was at it again when he told the world that God asked him to contest the third time in 2015. Unfortunately for him, the 2015 presidential election was won by Muhammadu Buhari.
4. Apostle Johnson Suleman
The founder of Omega Fire Ministry, Apostle Johnson Suleman had declared during a service that Governor Nasir El-Rufai would die if he did not revoke the controversial preaching bill he came up with. The state government has not revoked the bill. The noise over it has died down and El-Rufai is still living despite the non-revocation of the bill. Also, Apostle Johnson Suleman predicted that, except Americans prayed, President Barack Obama would seek third term with a likelihood of the presidential elections not holding. This never happened. Again, during the 2015 presidential election, Apostle Johnson Suleman prophesied that Buhari would win all the eastern states in Nigeria. But, Buhari lost all eastern states to the PDP by wide margin.
5. Pastor Tunde Bakare
Many could not forget in a hurry when Pastor Tunde Bakare, the Senior Pastor of the Latter Rain Assembly, took the nation by storm when he prophesied that Chief Olusegun Obasanjo would not be sworn in as president of Nigeria in 1999. The pastor said he saw the crown hovered around the President’s head a couple of times, moved closely as if to settle down, and just as Nigerians clapped and cheered, the crown flew off. He said the second crown came along and that this time, it was the crown of death and finally declared that the crown would settle on the President’s head, meaning, Obasanjo would die. Well, Obasanjo did not only become president, he ruled for eight years and he is still alive till this very moment.
6. Rev. Simeon Ononogbu
The popular Ebonyi-based Pastor, Rev. Simeon Ononogbu predicted in an interview that the Falcons of Nigeria would reach the semi-finals in the last Women’s World Cup in France, while the hosts, France would be place fifth. He later blamed deceitful spirit when the prediction failed. Rev. Simeon Ononogbu said the prophecy on the Falcons could have failed because he failed to interpret the revelation properly. He, however, insisted that in spite of the failed prophecy, the revelation of France placing fifth in the tournament still stood because it was from God. I don’t know who he is trying to convince.
7. Pastor Samuel Akinbodunse
During the 2019 Presidential Election, Pastor Samuel Akinbodunse, a Nigerian pastor based in South Africa, prophesied that Buhari would not emerge winner of the election and that he would die. According to him, “Please Nigerians, warn Buhari that he is going beyond his boundary. That the Lord said his tenure is once and not twice. If not, he will not see the election o. If you know him and how to email the President of Nigeria, please write him a text. If he made a mistake to campaign for elections, before they vote, he will die. And I am saying the truth, I am saying the truth, “he declared. But, Buhari won the election in 2019 and he is still alive till today.
8. Bishop Wale Olagunju
The Presiding Bishop of Divine Seed of God Chapel Ministries, Ibadan, Oyo State, Bishop Wale Olagunju prophesied that Buhari would lose the 2019 presidential election to Atiku Abubakar, but it never happened. According to his words; “Let me congratulate President Muhammadu Buhari for winning the ticket of his party, the All Progressives Congress, and let me also make it clear to him that he will lose to Atiku Abubakar. Let me also congratulate Atiku in advance because he will win the next presidential election come 2019,” he stated. But unfortunately, Buhari won the 2019 presidential election.
