Bishop David Oyedepo is the founder of the Living Faith Church World-wide.

“The next 12 months will be 12 months of frustration and men’s hearts will fail them for fear. The proud and the wicked shall grow more stubborn but all those who fear the name of God, the son of righteousness shall rise on their behalf,” the man of God said and called on Nigerians to watch out as coloured people are going to take over the world economy and the next three years would be a season of supernatural take over.
God will punish Iwu, Obasanjo, Ehindero on election - Prophet Anifowose, Jerusalem Ministry
Prophet Anifowose Prophet J.C. Anifowose of the Jerusalem Ministry, Ibadan, Oyo State said that the Lord had promised to inquire the blood of those who died in Jos and many who have died before as a result of the “controversial do or die election,” which had been doing the country a lot of havoc since its completion.
The Lord is planning a new generation of “Holiness, righteousness and prosperity in the country.”
The Lord, however, says the approval and validation accorded the last presidential elections by the Apex court “is an approval to their pockets and does not have any root in heaven.
“The Lord says only the elections of those states that came into power without shedding blood will be validated,” he said.
The Lord says President Yar’Adua is the greatest and faithful president Nigeria ever had since her independence but yet he is not the “messiah” whom he had chosen to rule the country in fulfilling His new generation plan for the country.
The Lord says for this purpose, He has allowed him (Yar’Adua) not to continue ruling but to conduct new, clean, fresh (bloodless) elections for Him. The Lord says He wants new election to be conducted in the country.
The Lord says he would begin His judgement against Morris Iwu, INEC chairman, because he has paraded himself “as a man without conscience before Him.
On former President Olusegun Obasanjo, the Lord says that it was a mistake he made by imposing and forced a successor on Nigerians through his might (flesh) but not by his spirit. The Lord says former President Obasanjo failed to know that no man can work for God, you can only be with God.
But the Lord says He has forgiven former President Olusegun Obasanjo because He knows that he did this out of a “good heart.”
“On Sunday Ehindero, the Lord said He will punish him, and others for their roles in the 2007 general elections.
More Nigerians to lose their jobs - Rev. Emmanuel Obata, Gospel Church of Christ, Enugu
The spiritual leader of the Gospel Church of Christ, Enugu, Reverend Emmanuel Obatai described the year ending, 2008 as the worst year in the last decade, saying “it was the year the so-called giant of Africa had its worst general elections with catalogue or rigging and electoral frauds.”
He stated that Nigerians would not know peace unless the people and their rulers turn to God, while noting that year 2008 also witnessed the highest number of job losers.
On 2009, the man of God who predicted that a black man would rule America five years ago, said that Nigeria, as a nation, is doomed unless the people and their leaders changed their attitudes positively, stressing that many would still lose their jobs because of bad economy which he said was cutting across the globe.
The man of God, therefore, called on the Federal Government to reverse its policy on real sector with a view to creating employment opportunities in the country.” How can you think of throwing away 825,000 people to the labour market,” he said, arguing that “such development could lead to throwing away twice the figure in 2009.” He, however, urged government to always embark on policies and programmes that would have direct impact on the people.
Also, Pastor Olisemeka Jide Onwo of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), Enugu, stated that Nigeria would still witness bright future despite the criticism trailing the one and half years of the present administration.
“With proper planning and effective management of the economy, Nigeria with her abundant natural and human resources would be better a place to live in,” the man of God added.
Labour unions will have wage increase - Primate Elijah Ayodele Babatunde
Primate Elijah Ayodele Babatunde Primate Elijah Ayodele Babatunde who predicted in 2007 that Senate President, David Mark would face a lot of problems so much that he may be impeached, said that the low income earners will be involved in taxation problem which would lead to mass protest.
He said”God also revealed to me that government would run into troubled waters in an attempt to raise internally generated revenue.’’
Speaking on what Nigerians should expect, Primate Babatunde said that there would be scarcity of aviation fuel and its prices would be increased thereby leading to increase in the cost of flight tickets.
“God showed me that the organised labour unions in the country would witness increase in their monthly wages in the year 2009. However, the Lord has also revealed to me that during the year, there is going to be inflation in the land, as there would be increase in the prices of foodstuffs,” he said.
In the year 2009, he said, a lot of people would die of malaria, diabetes and cholera diseases.” These are the things government at all levels should fight against. Parts of the South-South and Northern parts of the country would be greatly affected in the cholera epidemic.
“Also, we are going to witness upheavals. In Lagos State. Members of the NURTW should be closely monitored by the state government because they are going to cause mayhem in Iyana Ipaja, Agege and Mushin areas of the state,” he said.
God says that some secrets should be exposed, while not all the sitting governors would end their tenures, as some governors would change their commissioners in year 2009.
The Ooni of Ife, Oba Okunade Sijuwade, the Owa Obokun of Ijesaland, Oba (Dr.) Adekunle Aromolaran, the Obi of Onitsha should all pray to God to grant them long lives, while the Alaafin of Oyo should pray against scandals the Alake of Egbaland, Oba Gbadebo should pray for good health including a one time president of the country should also pray for good health.
President Umaru Yar’Adua will not be able to tun for a second term because the power behind the scene would force him to resign from the presidency if he tries to nurse the ambition.
Also in 2009, March, August and October, the President should relax very well and he should not embark on any journey both within and outside the country, otherwise, it would affect his health adversely.
Above all, the president meant well for the country and he intends to do his best for the development of the country but we have to pray so that nobody prevents him from doing so.
There is not going to be any military coup in Nigeria but there is going to be a military coup in one African country. And we have to pray so that we do not loose any African Union (UN) leader and that there should be any problem in the continent.
We should also pray against the incursion of the Jihadists so that Nigeria would not witness the traces of some Islamic terrorists in the country.
Despite the creator of Niger Delta Ministry, there is going to be more problems in the region, we should pray very hard against the incident of suicide bombers in the oil producing states. The region needs more spiritual cleansing and a retreat to sanitise the people against sabotaging the efforts of the governments to develop the region.
There is going to be retrenchments in the Nigerian Customs Services, the Nigeria Police Force, the Nigeria Navy, the Nigeria Prisons Services, Nigerian Army and Air Force. Specifically, God told me that there is going to be crisis within the Nigeria Navy Command because a warship would be attacked and there is going to be a partial fire incident in one of the Navy’s dockyards. They should also pray against unexpected deaths among its high ranking officers.
Government would spend a lot of money to improve the agricultural sector, but we have to pray very hard as a people so that there would be no incident of poisonous foodstuffs like beans, rice and garri that is capable of killing people in their thousands.
There is going to be a lot of crisis within the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission’s officials and the problem would lead to the changing of the name of the anti-fraud agency.
Government is still going to merge the EFCC and other anti-corruption agencies like the Independent Corrupt Practices Commission including the Police Special Fraud Unit so that they can all work as one body.
Also in the police, there is going to be some problems and mass retirement of officers and men. Very soon, some people will accuse the Inspector General of Police, Mr. Mike Okiro, of unjustifiable or not. The Police Science Commission would also be faced with the retirement troubles, accusations and fraudulent practices against its leadership.
In the new year, some Divisional Police Officers, Area Commanders, Commissioners of Police and Assistant Inspector General of Police are going to be transferred in the various police formations and commands across the country. Some top police officers are also going to be indicted in the year 2009.
The Bar Beach would overflow its bank some months into the new year. The entire nation should also pray against the incidents of collapsed buildings. There is going to be a new private telecommunication company in Nigeria, while the taints of the existing private telecommunication companies would cause some problems, others would be faced with problems of fraudulent practices among their employees while the National Communication Commission is going to fine some of the private telecommunication service providers for certain offences.
On the National Assembly, members are still going to be at logger heads with the president because of monetary issues. God says except some measures were taken, there are imminent problems for both the Senate President and the Speaker of the House of Representatives. If the crisis at the National Assembly is not properly managed, it could lead to the break up of both Houses.
Similarly, the doctors are going on industrial actions and lecturers in the tertiary institutions are going to embark on strike in the new year. We should pray against petroleum pipeline explosion that would lead to the scarcity of gas, kerosene, diesel and petroleum.
The organised labour unions are going to stage protests about increase in wages and there is going to be increment in house rentage in the major cities of Nigeria. But government would try to proffer solutions to it but it is not going to work because there is going to be increase in the prices of building materials like cement, blocks, sands and granite. There is also going to be clamouring for states and local government creations across the six geo-political zones of the country.
In the new year, the Lagos State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) would take the state chapter of the Action Congress (AC) to , over the conduct of the last local government election in the state, but the PDP will not win the case and there is not going to be re-contesting of the election again in the state.
God told me that 57 local government councils in Lagos State would come into fruition as it would be gazetted by the National Assembly in favour of Lagos State.
