The Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, shifted the Presidential and National Assembly elections by one week on Saturday.
However, the founder and general overseer of the Omega Fire Ministries International Apostle Suleman Johnson, prophesied the postponement.
The decision by INEC to postpone the polls has been met with shock and scorn across the country.
In a video going viral on social media, the cleric foresaw the postponement of Nigeria’s 2019 elections during the “Open Heaven Crusade” held in Onitsha, Anambra state, on 9th January.
Apostle Johnson’s prediction could be said to have come to pass after INEC Chairman, Mahmood Yakubu, announced new dates for the polls on Saturday morning.
The pastor said at the crusade, “Can I surprise you? If we do not pray well, I don’t see the election.
“I saw a date that was shifted. They will give you lies and security reasons.”
