You may have heard the news that T.B Joshua had predicted victory for PDP candidate, Atiku Abubakar, during his New Year service.

“The election will be closely contested between the two leading political parties, but I see Atiku Abubakar winning,” is what we read.

As expected, the story went viral on social media.

However, in a statement released on his official Facebook page, Joshua categorically denied the report.

“Prophet T.B. Joshua has not yet released any prophecy for the year, 2019... Any prophecy credited to him should be ignored. Emmanuel TV is our means of spreading our message; stay tuned to Emmanuel TV,” the statement read.

He has, however, also stated his view of politics in a sermon posted on YouTube on January 1, 2019.

The cleric bemoaned the ‘religious spirit’ which has infiltrated Christianity, stressing that “Jesus’ focus is the motive behind what we do” and “Christianity lies in the heart”.

“When you see someone who is doing good, don’t be in a haste to see him as good because you don’t know his motive,” he preached.

Politicians who fail to fulfil election campaigns after being elected to office are examples of those who do things with the wrong motive.
