Edo 2020: God Is Yet To Speak To Me, The Prophecy You Heard Is Not From Me’ TB Joshua Denies Prophecy Rumour

The General Overseer of Synagogue Church of All Nations (SCOAN), Prophet T. B. Joshua, has denied giving any prophecy on the September 19 governorship election.

The cleric stated this in a statement that any such story of him giving a prophecy about what will be the outcome of the forthcoming Edo election was entirely false and it is a prophecy propagated by Satan.

The statement was made in reaction to some articles circulating on the internet claiming that Prophet T. B. Joshua has given a prophecy regarding the forthcoming governorship election in Edo State.

It enjoined the populace to desist from taken hearsay seriously and that as the Bible says in John 8:44 that Satan is ‘the father of lies’, thus people should not listen to the father of lies, the sons of lies and the daughters of lies.

He further said that God requires that man find out the truth from Him first and hold fast to that which is true, as the Bible says in 1 Thessalonians 5:21.

The church noted that Emmanuel TV is the only official mouthpiece of The Synagogue, Church of All Nations (SCOAN) and if any news is not coming form the TV, it should be disregarded.

‘Don’t Take Mailafia’s Allegation Lightly’ Northern Governors Call for Thorough Investigation

The Northern Governors’ Forum has called for a thorough investigation over the allegation made by the Former Deputy Governor of Central Bank Nigeria, Dr. Obadiah Mailafia that a serving governor is a commander of the Boko Haram.

The Chairman of the Norther Governors’ Forum and Governor of Plateau State, Simon Lalong, said this through a statement issued by his Director of Press and Public Affairs, Makut Meacham called on security agencies to investigate the allegation that it is too weighty to be ignored.

Lalong noted that the umbrella body of the 19 northern governors have been working hard to see the end of banditry and terrorism and for one of them to be alleged to be a leading member of Boko Haram calls for thorough probe.

He urged Dr. Mailafia and all citizens with useful information on the activities of criminals and terrorist groups to assist security agencies and Governments at all levels with such intelligence for proper action.

The Governor also hoped that such allegations are not smear campaigns or attempts to discourage Northern governors who are putting in their best to bring an end to insecurity in the region.

The one time CBN Deputy Governor, made the claim in an interview on an Abuja-based radio station, on earlier this week, claimed that a governor from the north is a commander of Boko Haram and that insurgents would soon start urban killings and attacking southern parts of the country.

He has since then been invited for questioning and investigation by the Director of State Service (DSS), in Jos and has been freed.
