An Enugu- based Prophet Anthony Nwoko has predicted that neither President Goodluck Jonathan of the ruling Peoples Democratic Party nor his opponent, Gen. Muhammad Buhari of the All Progressives Congress(APC) would be president after next month’s election.
It would be recalled that Nwoko, who briefed newsmen in Enugu yesterday on the state of the nation, had in 1993 prophesied the end of the military regime of former head of state, Gen. Ibrahim Babangida(rtd).
In 1998, he also prophesied that late military ruler, Gen. Sani Abacha, would leave governance of Nigeria in a mysterious way.
He lamented that the nation was turning very ungodly, saying, “I had told IBB in 1993 to leave office and it happened and in 1998, I prophesied that Abacha would leave office mysteriously, and you saw what happened”.
On the current Jonathan presidency and the prospects of his re-election, Nwoko said, “In 2010, I told Nigerians that they should not expect much or any miracle from Jonathan. Now, in this coming election, Jonathan will only serve as John the Baptist and Buhari has not got any heavenly crown to rule and he will not rule this country because he hasn’t got that crown.
“Don’t take my prophesies for granted because I had also told Gen. Abdulsalam Abubakar not to make Obasanjo president and I had also warned Gen. Obasanjo not to make late former President Yar’Adua president and my advice was not heeded and you saw what happened”, he pointed out.
When asked what would happen since he has prophesied that the two leading presidential candidates would not be president after February elections, the 64- year old prophet said “I can see the glory of Nigeria in the South East and I don’t agree with Wole Soyinka that Jonathan is Nebuchadnezzar ; Jonathan is a forerunner to the glory of God”.
Reacting to recent comments by fiery Enugu Catholic cleric, Rev. Fr. Ejike Mabaka, Prophet Nwoko said he was not condemning the priest but “I want to tell him that I can see the glory of God in the South”.
The prophet said he is not married even at his advanced age of 64 and that he has no home of his own and has not set his feet on the soil of his Umuahia country home in Abia State in the past 45 years, saying he would only visit Umuahia after accomplishing the prophetic task for which he was called home from America by God.
