The Pastor of House Hold Of God Church, Pastor Chris Okotie, on Sunday, 25th October, while preaching in his church openly said the President of the Christian Association of Nigeria, Pastor Ayo Oritsejafor deceived former President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan to contest in the last election saying, God has said he would win the election and he can go ahead with it.
According to Okotie, the former president had not been willing to recontest, but when Oritsejafor gave him his word, he went ahead. Okotie alleged that so many pastors knew that Oritsejafor had given a false prophesy but were too scared to call him out, because they do not want to be insulted on the pages of newspapers, but he, Okotie never stopped saying, Goodluck Jonathan was going to fail because he wasn’t the candidate of the Lord.
“Pastor Oritsejafor deceived Jonathan with a false prophecy from God that he (Jonathan) would win the election convincingly. The man (Jonathan) became convinced to contest after Oritsejafor had told him, using CAN’s name, that God had ordained him the winner of the 2015 presidential election, he said.”
Speaking on why so many pastors kept mum on Oritsejafor’s prophesy, Okotie said;
“They couldn’t speak out because they were scared of being insulted. They were scared of being insulted for saying rubbish. They were scared of being insulted on the pages of newspapers. So, while I continued to write and speak that Jonathan was not the man, those of them who knew the truth in what I was saying chose to keep quiet out of fear.
“I told CAN and PFN that Jonathan was not of God; that whosoever would win would be one that had built a tabernacle in the presence of God.
“I told CAN and PFN that Jonathan did not belong to the House of David and that since he did not belong to the household, his winning would bring more sorrow to Nigeria,” Okotie said.
