Tinubu used ‘strange powers’ to clinch APC ticket – Prophet ShalomKelvin
Reverend ShalomKelvin Akinbo, the Head Pastor of Doers Nation International Church, in Akure, the Ondo State capital, has suggested that Bola Tinubu, the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), used “strange powers” to secure the ruling party’s ticket.
Reverend ShalomKelvin, however, prophesised that the former Lagos governor will not be the one that would succeed President Muhammadu Buhari when the retired military officer hands over to his successor on 29 May 2023.
Rev. ShalomKelvin, who made the prophecy while addressing his congregation on the ‘Mountain of Prayer’ in Akure, said Tinubu bewitched the Presidency and the top hierarchy of the ruling APC.
“There was a man who bewitched the entire city of Samaria and to him they gave heed that he himself was of a great power but one time he was exposed and humiliated openly and that is what is going to happen to him as I saw in the vision,” said the cleric.
“Sometimes people ask questions like ‘what happened why a word given not come to pass?’ Read John 11:4 where Jesus said ‘this sickness is not unto death.’ Yet the man died and he had to bring him back to life to continue his mission and fulfilled his purpose.
“In Genesis 15:13 God said ‘the children of Israel would be in bondage for 400 years’ but they were there for 430 years. Let’s understand there was a delay for 30 more years because of strange powers in Egypt that won’t let them go,” affirmed Rev ShalomKelvin.
“Sometimes people ask ‘but a prophecy was given.’ Yes, when a prophecy is given there are parts we must play for the fulfilment of that prophecy.
“A word was given to Abraham that he would be the father of nations but before the fulfilment of that word he did something wrong by sleeping with Hagar his maid and she brought forth Ishmael. A year later, the prophecy was fulfilled. God’s words always come to pass.
“There’s a law of sacrifice the earth must respond to. A prophecy cannot be given to you while you fold your hands waiting for the fulfilment, especially when it has to do with a region or nation.
“A Prophecy given can be delayed and also subject to change. Many of you remember the story of a king in the Bible that offered his son the heir to the throne and as a result there was a great indignation against their opponent. They won the war as a result of that sacrifice.
“I told a presidential aspirant your opponents are drinking human blood and eating human flesh for power; that you cannot just fold your hands sleeping every night and expect things to fall into your hands.
“Rise up and call on God of heaven otherwise these things can never get to your hands.
“Most of the time he was busy from one meeting to another; no time to pray. There are powers and principalities that control nations; understand that you have powers to contend with as a leader of a nation.
“What played out before the ruling party’s convention was a manipulation from hell. The people bowed to the god of this world. The ticket given to Mr Bola Tinubu is a stolen ticket. It’s a stolen mandate and would be taken from him.
“Mr Tinubu bewitched the Presidency and the people and took another man’s mandate overnight.
“I am a prophet; I know what I am saying” remarked Rev. ShalomKelvin, who then went on prophecy that Tinubu won’t take over from Buhari.
“I speak as a prophet of God. Bola Tinubu will not sign (on 29 May 2023); somebody else will do that in his place.
“As we rise to pray for this nation, we take back our country. Let us pray.
“Let’s rise up and take back our nation from captivity this time through prayer and active participation in voting. Something new is coming to Nigeria but there’s going to be a serious national travail before it finally comes.”
