General Overseer of Household of God Church, Chris Okotie, on Sunday said Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) president, Ayo Oritsejafor, fooled President Goodluck Jonathan into thinking he would win the 2015 presidential elections die to false prophecy.
According to Daily Post, Okotie expressed this viewpoint on Sunday during a sermon. He also stated that many CAN members knew the prophecy was false but were scared to speak out.
Here are excerpts from his statements:
“The man (Jonathan) became convinced to contest after Oritsejafor had told him, using CAN’s name, that God had ordained him the winner of the 2015 presidential election…
They couldn’t speak out because they were scared of being insulted. They were scared of being insulted for saying rubbish.
They were scared of being insulted on the pages of newspapers. So, while I continued to write and speak that Jonathan was not the man, those of them who knew the truth in what I was saying chose to keep quiet out of fear.
I told CAN and PFN that Jonathan was not of God; that whosoever would win would be one that had built a tabernacle in the presence of God.
I told CAN and PFN that Jonathan did not belong to the House of David and that since he did not belong to the household, his winning would bring more sorrow to Nigeria…”
