2019 is finally here and Nigeria's general election is less than 46 days away.

Prophecies about how the new year will turn out are already coming in from men of God in Nigeria and this is one that should make President Muhammadu Buhari smile. 

It is coming from a renowned cleric, Prophet Christopher Owolabi.

He has predicted that the tenure of the present administration under President Muhammadu Buhari would extend beyond 2019.

Owolabi is the General Overseer Christ Apostolic Church Ori-Oke, Irapada, Omu-Aran and he made the prediction during the Church’s crossover night service tagged: “Seeking for Nigeria’s Democratic Sustenance Beyond 2019” in Omu-Aran, Kwara.

It was not personal or political, the priest told the gathering and said it was God’s divine guidance and direction for Nigeria.

He also predicted a rapid socio-economic recovery for the country in the New Year, saying the leaders needed the urgent intercession of the citizens through prayers to consolidate on the gains of the government’s anti-corruption fight.

According to him, “it is based on God’s interest in directing the affairs of the country at this critical period of its history as it is revealed to me”.

Owolabi said election of leaders in Nigeria presently had gone beyond personalities or individuals but through divine intervention.

“No matter any act of political commission or omission, God is the one presently in control and directing the affairs of the country,” he said.

Owolabi, who was known to have made many predictions as regard the nation’s current affairs including the emergence of Senator Bukola Saraki as the leader of the 8th Senate, urged politicians to play according to the rules.

The cleric also decried the incessant killings, kidnappings, armed robbery and backbiting that had pervaded the land and urged Nigerians to learn from their past mistakes, misdeeds and shortcoming by embracing righteousness in the New Year.
