When it comes to accurate predictions like Nostradamus of old, another person that comes to mind is Prophet Ekong Ituen of Christ Deliverance Ministries in Lagos. His accuracy on prophecies about people and events has made him a household name. It is on record that over the years, he had predicted many things that came to pass. In this interview, he advised former President Babangida to pray against political embarrassment. Excerpt;
What is your comment about the outgoing year?
The outgoing year was awesome because we saw the hand of God in this country. I am delighted to tell Nigerians that everything that happened during 2015 elections was according to God’s plan, the way I prophesied.
Nigerians should recall as was published in Daily Sun of January 20, 2014 page 54 and Daily Sun of January 15, 2015 page 47, that I warned former President Jonathan before time, “That he will not win 2015 presidential election. I added that he will beg Obasanjo for political help but Obasanjo will be adamant”.
The fact is that, prophecy is a warning, a clue to the plan of God and can be prevented if the right steps are taken, but it is unfortunate Nigerians and the leadership of this country have taken the warnings of God for granted.
I urge our leaders to take good prophecies as part of intelligence reports and not as criticism or hatred because even in the Bible God used Prophets to warn leaders of impending crises.
Let me highlight many of my prophecies that came to pass from inception of my ministry because God cannot speak in error. It is on record that I predicted the death of late Dr. Nnamdi Azikiwe (the former President) that he will die before the middle of 1996, and he died in May 1996. I also predicted the followings: M.K.O Abiola’s political problems, the fall out between General Abacha and Diya, the collapse of Abacha’s transitional programme, The Sudan and Kenya Crises, the death of late President Musa Yar’adua, the resignation of Chief Obasanjo from the position of the Chairman PDP Board of Trustees, the emergence of Jonathan as President in 2011 polls, the political defeat of the former Governors of Oyo and Imo States, in the person of Chief Alao Akala and Mr. Ikedi Ohakim respectively, the sudden death of the former Governor of Kaduna State, Late Patrick Yakowa, the face-off between President Jonathan and some Northern States Governors and defection of PDP Governors to APC, the political clash between Obasanjo and Jonathan, PDP crisis, the removal of the former Chairman of People’s Democratic Party (PDP), Alhaji Bamanga Tukur, “that he will be sacked or forced to resign”. I also predicted the removal of the former Governor of Central Bank of Nigeria, Mallam Lamido Sanusi, that he will be retired in a controversial manner, the political defeat of former President Jonathan during 2015 election, the death of Ooni of Ife, the dissolution of NDDC Board and the removal of the Managing Director. All these are on record as were published in national dailies including The Sun Newspaper.
You are known for accurate prophecies, what should Nigerians expect in 2016 and beyond?
Let me start by telling Nigerians that there is hope for a better Nigeria despite our challenges. I urge our religious leaders to avoid religious sentiments and support President Buhari in transforming Nigeria because he has good intentions. I have a strong belief that under the leadership of Buhari, the glory of Nigeria will be restored.
Furthermore, Nigerians should please note down the following prophecies because it is written: “The secret things belong unto the Lord our God, but those things which are revealed belong unto us and our children”.
2016 will be a bad year for corrupt judges and politicians. It is certain that beginning from 2016, many judges will be sacked because of corruption while many prominent Nigerians will go to jail as earlier predicted.
A new Party will emerge from PDP before next election. It should be recalled that in 2011, I told Nigerians that in the nearest future PDP will be a party not to reckon with anymore because the party will not be able to control the centre (presidency).
Buhari will step on toes of some of those who helped him to power.
Mr. Godwin Emefiele will find it difficult to retain his position as the Governor of Central Bank of Nigeria as he will be removed unceremoniously.
Former President Ibrahim Babangida should pray against political embarrassment, there is a plot to discredit him. He also need prayers for good health.
The Speaker Akwa Ibom State House of Assembly, Hon. Onofiok Luke needs divine intervention to destabilize political conspiracy awaiting him. In my revelation, I saw him crying for help. He must pray for the sustainability of his office.
The former Managing Director of NDDC, Barrister Bassey Dan Abia will be probed and charged for corruption, he may go to jail. It is on record as was published in Daily Sun of January 20, 2014 page 54 and Daily Sun of January 15, 2015 page 47 that I predicted the dissolution of NDDC Board and the removal of the Managing Director as they will not complete their tenure in office. This prediction came one month after their swearing-in.
Ondo State House of Assembly needs prayers against death in their midst, they should also pray against confusion in the House.
Nigerians will have another National Conference. It is on record that I predicted as was published in Daily Sun of January 20, 2014 page 54 that the National Conference of former President Jonathan will be an effort in futility because there will be no implementation.
The political situation in Akwa Ibom State is very tense, but I have seen a new dawn with celebration.
Former President Shagari should pray against health challenges that will claim his life.
Senator Buriji Kashimu needs prayers for good health, there is also need for him to pray against embarrassment.
Hon. Abiodun James Faleke of APC in Kogi State may eventually be made Governor in future if he seeks the face of God and prays well.
The former Vice President, Nnamadi Sambo should pray against a serious ailment that may take his life.
Buhari government will defeat Boko Haram but not in totality. The truth is that we need divine intervention to complement the physical combat because Boko Haram is an ideology with agenda. I urge the Federal Government to go back to my advice because the total solution for the eradication of Boko Haram insurgents is in God’s hands.
The Militancy in Niger Delta is not yet over, as a group of militants that will be more destructive will re-emerge. They will put the inhabitants in disarray.
