Jonathan will be PDP’s last president — Popular Lagos Cleric

Unlike the 2011 general elections when President Goodluck Jonathan found favour with Nigerian church leaders with some of them out-rightly endorsing him, there seems to be a scramble by clerics to bash the president.

Popular Lagos pastor and founder INRI Evangelical Spiritual Church, Elijah Babatunde, has joined Catholic priest Ejike Mbaka and Tunde Bakare of the Latter Rain Assembly to predict a difficult election for the president in February.

Mr. Babatunde said should the president win, he will do by a slim margin; and that he will be the last president of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.

An opposition win, it it happens, will also be by a narrow margin, he said.

“President Goodluck Jonathan will be ‎the last PDP president to rule Nigeria,” Mr. Babatunde, who is the church’s Primate, declared.

‎In an interview with Daily Independent newspaper, the cleric who had many negative prophecies as the regards the country in 2015, said even though it will not be a landslide victory for the opposition, the President will lose.

“No matter what, Jonathan will be the last PDP President in Nigeria. I don’t see a landslide victory in the presidential election. To be frank, neither the victory of Jonathan or General Muhammadu Buhari can guarantee peace except we pray well,” he said. “Jonathan will not take Nigeria to the Promised Land. Let us pray against the death of an ex-President.”

Mr. Babatunde predicted that “There will not be election in some states”.

He said the elections will be characterised by advanced rigging as “both PDP and APC will share victory across the country particularly in the South-West and the North”.

The cleric asked Nigerians to observe a seven-day prayer in January to avert crisis that may plunge the nation into serious confusion during and after the polls, while stating that the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, will be cajoled to rig the elections.

“There will be several gimmicks to cajole the INEC to rig the election. Prayers must be offered so that the commission will not lose some of its staff to accident or attack before and during the election. E-voting will not work. There will be ballot box snatching and stuffing during the election,‎” he said.

‎He stressed that international communities and some heads of states will attempt to work against the re-election of Mr. Jonathan and asked the President to “be wary of diplomatic rows with foreign countries”.
He urged Mr. Jonathan to fight corruption and rescue the April 14, 2014 abducted Chibok girls.

Mr. Babatunde predicted election violence if Nigerians don’t pray and asked the President to commit his and his wife’s health to prayer.

On insecurity, Mr. Babatunde prophesied that the bombings and kidnapping of school children witnessed in the northern parts of Nigeria will extend to the South-West of Nigeria.

“I see flames from bombings in several parts of the country, including the South-West and more abduction of school pupils. Efforts should be intensified by security operatives to forestall that. Boko Haram will come up with different strategies to attack the nation.

“There are three groups of Boko Haram in Nigeria already. Only prayers can weaken their strength. Countries pretending they want to assist Nigeria to curb Boko Haram are not our friends. If they are allowed, they will create more problems for the nation,” he said.

The cleric asked President Jonathan to change his security details while stating that the Chief of Staff to the President will have issues with his boss and some ministers.

Speaking on the governorship elections, Mr. Babatunde predicted said the APC “committed a blunder” with the choice of Akinwunmi Ambode as governorship candidate for Lagos State.

“PDP will spring surprises and shock APC. If PDP works hard, the party will win Lagos governorship; however, the party’s candidate, Jimi Agbaje, needs prayers,” he said.

The primate said ‎APC will face an uphill task to retain Edo and Oyo states. He said that Governor Abiola Ajimobi might lose to Rashidi Ladoja of Accord Party, AP.

“In Rivers State, if PDP underrates APC, the latter will win, though the election will be marred with violence. Attempts by the opposition parties to defeat Governor Ibikunle Amosun in Ogun State will not materialise,” he continued.

He also predicted that ‎If APC elects the right governorship candidate, the party will dislodge PDP from Ondo State in 2016.

“PDP will win Delta and Cross River states but there will be crisis in Abia and Ebonyi states even though the party will win there.

“APC will win in Sokoto. PDP will find it hard to retain Kaduna State because there will be serious crisis there. Kano State will be difficult for PDP to win, so also Katsina State. PDP will win Jigawa and Taraba. PDP has messed up in Kwara, the victory will go to APC,” he stated.

‎He warned the former Minister of State for Defence, Musiliu Obanikoro, of political disappointment; he said Mr. Obanikoro should pray.

The primate said he foresees a rise in the Nigerian stock exchange with the effect of devaluation of naira continuing till August as Minister of Finance, Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, will not be able to make appreciable impact on the economy.

He claimed the Governor of Central Bank of Nigeria, Godwin Emefiele, will have crises and may be denied a second term.

“Some banks will collapse and one of the dead banks will be resuscitated. Flour, sugar and fuel prices will be increased in the year. There will be serious crises in OPEC and the Controller-General of Customs and the group managing director of the NNPC will be removed. State of the nation,” he said.

He asked Nigerians to pray against the recurrence of Ebola in Nigeria and prophesied that more building will collapse in Lagos in 2015.

“Let traditional rulers in the South-West pray against infernos that may engulf their palaces,” he said while urging journalists and Nollywood stars to pray against sudden death.

“Also, Oba of Benin, Emirs of Nupe and Zaria should pray against sickness. Some universities will be shut because of cultism and some Vice Chancellors will be queried. We need to pray to avoid plane crash in Lagos, Abuja and Kano airports. We need prayers against ocean surge in Nigeria and other African countries this year”.

Mr. Babatunde predicted an outbreak of polio, cholera and fluid outbreak caused by poultry products.
He finally said “National Union of Road Transport and Workers (NURTW) will face serious infighting and killings and court actions. We must pray against bloodshed among their members in different states. Some states in Nigeria will collapse from 2018, owing due to excessive borrowing from overseas”.

    “…both PDP and APC will share victory across the country particularly in the South-West and the North… APC will win in Sokoto. PDP will find it hard to retain Kaduna State because there will be serious crisis there. Kano State will be difficult for PDP to win, so also Katsina State. PDP will win Jigawa and Taraba.”
    HAHAHA!!! Looka here boys, if the above statement is true, which I know it is by the way, then GEJ is coasting to victory! GEJ splits the North and South-West?! Genius!

    • simonibekwe

      You celebrate to early because Kano voteer alone is equivalent to the sum of all the Southeast vote combined. This gives APC overwhelming victory over all.

      • Otile

        You are as illiterate as Imam Buhari. Did you go to school at all? If so where is your certificate, if not that’s why you are rooting for Imam because birds of the same feather flock together.

        • Bunduma Mohammed

          Please stop abusing people and focus on issues. Has Jonathan performed to warrant election or are you one of thosewho have sold your concience?

          • Patriotic Citizen

            He is one of them!

  • Wähala

    @Reno Omokri…
    Can’t you see the guy was just jumping onto the band wagon? Since when have pastors become political pundits? Nothing any of them has said we haven’t said here and elsewhere, if even Fr. Mbaka could make a bolt face in 360° to support Change and jolt Ndigbo awake, expect all kinds of silly predictable-prophesies from all sorts of quarks and freaks. But strictly speaking, Dumbo cannot win more than in seven (7) States if elections are held anytime soon in Nigeria… it will soon be clear to you, Reno. Just keep coming!

  • amazing2012

    Nothing new !

  • Mr. Abdin

    WELL SAID PASTOE JONATHAN SHOULD BETTER START PARKING HIS LOAD.

  • True Nigerian

    What a laughable joke in the name of prophecies!

    These fellows should count themselves lucky that they operate in a brainlessly religious society like Nigeria, where people do not even read the bible before calling themselves Christians, which is exactly why they support a horrendous callously corrupt thieves in the name of Christianity. If Nigeria is a society where Christians are thoughtful enough to read their bibles, they would know that real prophets do not speak in the language “if A works hard, he may achieve something”.
    Isn’t that simple common sense and basic logical reasoning?

    But people still refer to this fellow as “Famous Lagos Pastor”. Utterly ridiculous! If a prophet that prophesies in this manner is famous, it can only mean that most people in the society he operates are simply brainless and intellectually to lazy to engage in the basic task of logical thinking.

    The mentality in this country really sucks! This is why we ended up with a President like Jonathan in the first place! Most of our people are bereft of basic reflective thinking!

    Yes, I believe Jonathan should lose, but it doesn’t have to be prophesied in such poor guess work. It is basic common sense. I just hate it when people allow religion to make them look utterly fuulish and intellectually poor!

    The reason I am thinking this way is not because I went to a good school. Even if I were an illiterate, I would still have a level of common sense and traditional wisdom, which would still be enough to teach me how to distinguish prediction from laughable guess work. But our so-called politicians would soon flock to this man to inquire from him about their chances. That’s how brainless they are! And yet some people wonder why such a bountifully endowed country is so pauperised and ridiculed across the rest of the sane world.

    Rev Ejike Mbaka did not prophesy. He merely relied on verifiable facts, upon which he reached a logical conclusion that a government that has the horrendous record of Jonathan’s government should have no business in being re-elected and that people should have no basis to support such a government.

    By contrast, these annual ritual of guesswork by Ayodele is stinkingly annoying to thoughtful fellows like yours truly!

  • Kamal Kamoru

    “The primate said he foresees a rise in the Nigerian stock exchange with the effect of devaluation of naira CONTINUING TILL AUGUST as Minister of Finance, Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, will not be able to make appreciable impact on the economy.”

    CONTINUING TILL AUGUST As Ngozi will not be able to..
    WHAT DOES THIS MEAN?? Thot he said GEJ will lose..and be the last PDP president?? If this happens, will Ngozi not be leaving in May(or before if there’s chaos in the country)?? Which period then is he saying she will not be able to mke appreciable impact??

    ““PDP will spring surprises and shock APC. If PDP works hard, the party will win Lagos governorship”

    OF COURSE IF PDP WORKS HARD,THEY CAN WIN LAGOS. SO IS THIS A PREDICTION OR PROPHESY OR WHAT??

    • Bunduma Mohammed

      Is Lagos Nigeria? They could not rig Lagos even under OBJ talkless of under a drunken clown.

  • The. Patriot

    Religious leader should steer clear of partisan politics. I really sympathize with our President because there seems to be a conspiracy against him. But God will see him through.

    • isaac

      Ah! They can’t steer clear because they expecting one theirs to be an APC Vice President!!!! Don’t you see? They want a share of the demonic cake!

      • Bunduma Mohammed

        Please look at Jonathan. Are saying you he has performed?. Please be reasonable even when you have been paid your brain should not stop functioning. Bishop Mbaka said it all please.

    • Innoma

      No one is conspiring against him. He took Nigerians for a ride thinking that his “luck” alone is enough to see him through forgetting that Nigerians from all works of life, region and religion voted for him overwhelmingly at the last presidential election believing that he was the messiah that they have been waiting for. But lo and behold, he is running a government of the rich, by the rich and for the rich.

    • Bunduma Mohammed

      GEJ failed th religious leaders who like other Nigerians supported being somebody who grew up without shoes but what did they get massiv curruption and insecurity. Jonathan is failure and it is only a failed person that supports failure.

  • Nathanael Alabi

    i could have made all these predictions myself

    • Tunsj

      You got that right.

  • paul eneke

    Ahh Pastor! i thought you said PDP will not win at the center,how then,or should i ask, from where will Obanikoro get his political dis-appointment.appointment. Oga Pastor,please check your fact and reconcile.

    • frank

      Brilliant! If PDP lose the Centre, we all know APC WILL NOT Consider him for any appointment..not even for a cleaner!
      SO, WHERE WILL THE DISAPPOINTMENT COME FROM?????
      With the kind of pastors in that country, it’s no wonder why churches spring up everywhere but godlessness is being multiplied daily!

    • Kaima Nkeozo

      The reporter is the one inserting Jonathan loss not the pastor. Read the reporter reportage by misquoting the pastor and the Pastor’s direct comment: REPORTER SAYS: ‎In an interview with Daily Independent newspaper, the cleric who had many negative prophecies as the regards the country in 2015, said even though it will not be a landslide victory for the opposition, the President will lose.

      THE PASTOR DIRECT COMMENT “No matter what, Jonathan will be the last PDP President in Nigeria (2019 OR 2015). I don’t see a landslide victory in the presidential election. To be frank, neither the victory of Jonathan or General Muhammadu Buhari can guarantee peace except we pray well,”

      The pastor went down to mention current government officials and continuation of boko haram, suggesting that Jonathan government will still be in place, otherwise there cant be disappointment for Koro.

  • Charly

    This is a trash! “President Goodluck Jonathan will be ‎the last PDP president to rule Nigeria,” If he wins in 2015(God forbid) and rule till 2019 and another party takes over then it still means he is the last PDP president. What a prediction! False prophet!

  • karl marx

    Nigerians don’t need any body to prophesy on the forthcoming elections because we are tired of all the trashes from Jonathan’s PDP led administration. We are ready to cast our votes for Buhari, stand to protect our votes from every planted evil to rig the elections. 2015, GMB, OSINBAJO

  • clairvoyance

    This man is so contradictory, when u make a prediction don’t say it is a prophecy. Prophecies cannot be reversed nor will prayers been offered avert the fulfillment of such prophecy. It is like anyone who needs recognition will what to use Jonathan as a means. We already know pres. Jonathan is a goner and doesn’t stand any chance whatsoever against the long suffering masses of Nigeria ably represented by the GMB/osinbajo not even the APC.

  • Comfortkay

    Man of God, tell us what is wrong in the APC for the last years , Jesus said we should be aware of those that comes in his name.

  • Akiika

    “Might”, “May”…blah blah blah….STFU!
    You say few things that are so obvious and you cook up some and claim those are predictions.
    Anyway, mumu plenty for Naija…dem go believe you.

  • joe

    Pastors are not RECEIVING TITS ,
    What has the pastors done to make Nigeria are better place,or than to take from the poor,from the Church goers ,i hear the Adeboye the other day, making 2015 predictions, he did not say anything positive, he was just like LIONEL MESSI, Jesus died on the cross, we were told he has washed a way our SINS, now we now have this so called pastors of hunger, 419pastors,pastor in PRIVATE JETS, PASTORS ON SUNDAYS,POLITICIANS DURING THE WEEK, you can all rot in hell, WHO CARES IF JONATHAN WIN OR LOSE. IF BUHARI WANT TO BE PRESIDENT, HE SHOULD FIRST SEEK THE SUPPORT OF BOKO HARAM , AS PART OF THE COUNTRY HE WANT TO RULE , IS CALIPHATE

  • Patriotic Citizen

    Boy!!! This your mouth just dey vomit venom!!!Chai……………..

  • King Carlos

    “PDP will spring surprises and shock APC. If PDP works hard, the party will win Lagos governorship; however, the party’s candidate, Jimi Agbaje, needs prayers,” he said.

    Contradicting prophecy. The reason why rev fr Mbaka’s sermon is so popular is because it is devoid of any ambiguity. Mbaka hit the nail on the head without mincing words. Mbaka’s message is for all and sundry, muslim or Christians.

    • Mosaku 147

      King Carlos,no mind this fake pastor who talks from both side of his dirty mouth.rubbish prophecy from a kindergarten MOG.

      • King Carlos

        Lol…. the guy wants to trend like Mbaka..that’s why he combined all sectors together.

  • muhammed olaniyan

    do not deceive your self, General Buhari the next President of Fed. Re. of. Nigeria.

  • Innoma

    If that pastor or whatever he claims to be do really have followers, I think it would be appropriate to have their sanities evaluated

  • Edward Osadebay

    I am not sure this guy saw anything or heard anything at all. It was just his personal permutations and nothing else.

  • Yusuf

    I agree with the pastor on many instances, i think its a thorough analysis, many of the hypothesis are premised on change of power with very high probability and some of the ascertains are logically obvious, like the royal fathers falling sick-they are both getting very old; although the use of the word ‘will’ is always dangerous in humanly predictions, better if he was using ‘may’ or ‘likely’

  • Etomi

    Idi0t Premium Times!!!
    Awon olori buriku!!!!
    Criminals!!!!
    BaSsTtarddsss!!!!
    You stage a rehash of a Daily Independent report titled, ‘How far Jonathan, APC will go in 2015,’ but only with subterfuge and brazen revisionism intended!!!!
    You said that Prophet Ayodele Elijah prophesied that Jonathan would lose the election, but woefully fail to reference a direct quote by the cleric to that effect..
    From the index report in Daily Independent, please read these quotes and see for yourself that PT is nothing but the feaces of journalism!!!
    Prophet Ayodele said:
    1. “He (JONATHAN) needs to pray for safety in the first 10 months of his SECOND TERM…”
    2. “AFTER THE ELECTION, governors will change and form a parallel government that will oppose JONATHAN..”
    In a far more recent interview with the Tribune, Prophet Ayodele said:
    1. “2015 elections will hold. As it is, from what I see at the moment, PDP will win, amidst serious criticism.”
    2. “However, when JONATHAN GETS A SECOND TERM, I don’t see peace..”
    Another cleric, Prophet Olaniyi Odutayo of the World Prophetic Church, Ikeja, has also predicted that President Goodluck Jonathan will prevail in 2015 elections.
    Hear him:
    1. “The upcoming election will be very tough for the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) but they will win the presidency.”
    2. “God Told Me That Jonathan Will Win In 2015”
    Yet another cleric, of the Celestial Church of Christ, CCC, Micheal Olubode, has also predicted that GEJ would win the election…
    He said:
    1. “I want to let the people of Nigeria know that The Lord will return His Excellency, Goodluck Ebele Jonathan to his presidential seat.
    2. “Despite many hatred for him, it pleases the Lord God of Celestial to increase his tenure at the Presidential Villa in Aso Rock.
    3. “The Lord revealed to me that the purpose of making him remain in government is to use him to build Nigeria’s economy. He will surely bring good luck to us.
    4. “He will have many troubles, but he will overcome them all just as my servant David. So says the Lord.”
    The point is, practically every cleric, save the GEJ critics among them like Mbaka and Bakare, who have ventured a prophetic peek into the electoral fortunes of the parties/candidates say GEJ/PDP would will the election…
    But to be honest with you, I need no prophet to know that GEJ is destined to rule Nigeria till 2019 by the finger of God….

  • abbadd

    Only God knows tomorrow mankind lives a life God has already planned for him. To attempt to predict what will happen alone is challenging the supremacy of God let us pray, vote and be patient and submit to God and leave everything to him. i repeat again Stop all this prediction only Almighty God knows tomorrow the POPE never predicted tomorrow no pastor in the western world those who introduced Christianity to Africa never predict tomorrow not even the jews but ask yourself why are Nigerian pastors the only ones who predict tomorrow? please people submit to the will of God and follow and obey God alone.

  • celestine chidi
