On March 20, 2016, popular Port-Harcourt
based prophet, Dr Chris Okafor gave Governor Nasir El-Rufai of Kaduna
state, a 14-day ultimatum to reverse the proposed religious bill or face
the wrath of God.
At the time, the words of the prophet
brewed fears in the hearts of many Nigerians who were thinking something
terrible would happen to the governor following his steadfastness to
the implementation of the proposed bill in the state.
“It will not happen in my time…it will
not happen in your time…it will not be on record that it happened in my
time…No! It will not happen!” the cleric declared to a thunderous
applause from the congregation.
“El Rufai take time! God is angry with
you! You have 14 days to reverse that law or the wrath of God will come
against you! You should count it, 14 days from today (March 20, 2016),
he has 14 days to reverse and invalidate that law… if he refuses to do
so, he should expect the wrath of God to visit him!”
He also told journalists after the
meeting that, “I prayed very well, and the Lord told me to go ahead and
warn El Rufai. And I want you all to count 14 days from the day of the
prophecy (March 20, 2016). If he does not retrace his steps and abandon
that bill, God will take steps to honor His words. 14 days! Please count
Apart from prophet Okafor, Apostle
Johnson Suleman also dealt the governor a blow below the belt, stating
categorically that he (El-Rufai) will die if he refuses to reverse the
anti-religious bill in Kaduna state.
The difference between the pair was that
while Dr Okafor gave an ultimatum, prophet Suleman was quite
diplomatic, choosing to wait until the proposed bill is passed.
And during a recent interview, the
charismatic governor dared the prophet who said he would die to mention
the date that the incident would happen, but none of them was
Fourteen days have passed since Dr Okafor’s prophecy yet, nothing of note has happened to the Kaduna state governor.
To confirm this, the governor still
posted an article on his official Facebook page about seven hours before
this article was published.
Nigerians who supported the governor’s
acts will believe the governor has been vindicated, however, those who
supported the prophet may now have themselves to blame. But, will
something terrible still happen to the governor?
Or did the prophet not hear clearly from God before he spoke with journalists?
