Femi Fani-Kayode has hinted that TB Joshua’s prayer helped George Weah win Liberia’s presidential election last Tuesday.
Africa’s first Ballon d’Or winner and president-elect had visited Nigeria to worship at the Synagogue Church of All Nations’ (SCOAN) branch in Lagos, in October during the election.
On Tuesday, 26 December, the professional footballer won the presidential election in Liberia.
Following his win, Femi Fani-Kayode, has hinted that his visit to SCOAN had something to do with the outcome of the election.
Femi, in a tweet also congratulated the newly elected president of Liberia. He thanked Temitope Balogun Joshua, the founder of SCOAN for his prayers regarding the just concluded presidential election in Liberia.
He said: “I congratulate George Weah on his election as the President of Liberia. I thank God for his life and for that of Prophet T.B. Joshua who prayed for him and assured him of victory when he visited him in his Church in Lagos a few weeks back. This is a well-deserved victory!”
Speaking of Weah’s visit to TB Joshua church in October, the pastor had noted that the president-elect was there because of his love for Liberia.
The man of God said: “My brother is here today because he loves his country and wants God’s choice for his country. He is not here to impose himself. What does God say about his country, Liberia? What is God’s opinion? That is why he is here.”
The pastor also said: “We are not herbalists or witch-doctors; we are people of God. God’s choice is our choice. We cannot pray against God’s will.
“Without God’s corresponding power, we cannot pray to Him. For every step we take — every movement and action — intimation comes first. There must be a suggestion from the Spirit to move before we move. If truly I am a man of God, I must hear from God — move or don’t move.”
George Weah who won the election on the platform of the Coalition for Democratic Change would assume office on Tuesday, January 16, 2018. He succeeded Ellen Johnson Sirleaf.
