The General Overseer of Synagogue Church of All Nations (SCOAN), Prophet T.B. Joshua has denied giving any prophecy on the September 19 governorship election in Edo State.
Joshua said any such story was, ‘entirely false,’ a ‘prophecy rumour’ and propagated by ‘Satan..the father of lies’.
The election is between incumbent Governor Godwin Obaseki of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu of the All Progressives Congress (APC), as the main candidates.
In a statement SCOAN said: “Our attention has been drawn to several articles circulating on the internet within Nigeria claiming that Prophet TB Joshua has given a prophecy regarding the upcoming governorship elections in Edo State, Nigeria.
“This story is entirely false! Prophet TB Joshua has not given any prophecy regarding this.
“Remember, the Bible says in John 8:44 that satan is ‘the father of lies’. Don’t listen to the father of lies, the sons of lies and the daughters of lies. Do not sit somewhere, hear this or that and come to a hasty conclusion.
“God requires that we find out the truth from Him first and hold fast to that which is true, as the Bible says in 1 Thessalonians 5:21. Emmanuel TV is the only official mouthpiece of The Synagogue, Church of All Nations (SCOAN). If you didn’t hear it on Emmanuel TV, please disregard it.”
