David Elijah, a Nigerian pastor at Glorious Mount of Possibility Church, Yaba, Lagos, has been dragged online for giving a false prophesy.
The pastor is being ridiculed on social media following his fake prophesy that President Donald Trump would win the just-concluded presidential election in the United States of America.
The pastor, as shown in a trending video on social media, also prophesied that a popular politician would die upon Mr Trump’s victory.
“If care is not taken and prayer is not made I see a politician in America committing suicide because of Donald Trump”, he told his congregation.
He assured his church members that “God is behind Donald Trump and He’s behind him”.
The pastor also admonished his church members that if they supported Mr Trump “God will work for his children”.
Nigerian pastors are well known for making prophesies on local and international matters. Many of them have been ridiculed in the past after their prophesies failed to come true.
Contrary to Pastor Elijah’s prophesy, former U.S. vice president, Joe Biden, won the historic election, garnering 273 electoral college votes against Mr. Trump’s 214.
Mr Biden was elected the 46th president of the United States in his third attempt at the presidency. In the same vein, Kamala Harris is the first woman to be elected U.S. vice president.
