TB Joshua denies giving anti-Mimiko prophecy
By DAYO JOHNSON
AKURE—The General Overseer of the Synagogue Church of All Nations, Prophet Temitope Joshua, yesterday, dissociated himself from an anti-Governor Olusegun Mimiko’s message being circulated in the state by one of the opposition political parties.
The party was said to be circulating a message/prophesy it claimed to have been made by the cleric against the second term ambition of the governor.
Prophet Joshua declared that such could not have emanated from him being a man of God who will never be part of a cheap political propaganda of a family of lies.
The cleric, an idigene of the state, said he has nothing against the second-term ambition of Ondo State Governor, Dr. Olusegun Mimiko, and at no time gave any prophecy against his second- term ambition.
The Prophet, in an electronic statement by his consultant, Legaville Konsult, in Akure, denied ownership of a hoax text message being circulated that he had purportedly prophesied against Mimiko’s second-term in office.
The statement reads in part: “The General Overseer has debunked a hoax text message making the rounds that he has prophesied that Gov. Rahman Olusegun Mimiko will not be re-elected as governor of Ondo State.
Joshua, an indigene of the state, appealed to all the parties contesting the October 20 gubernatorial election to shun violence and other unlawful acts during the electioneering.
