Nigerians have taken to Twitter to mock a former Super Eagles defender who turned a pastor, Taribo West, who recently declared a prophesy that the United States President, Donald Trump, would defeat Joe Biden by a slim margin.
He had bragged that he made the earlier declarations about the Edo and Ondo state elections, and it came to pass.
He frequently prophesied that Trump would defeat Biden by a slim margin and asked his supporters to ensure that his prophecy goes viral.
The ex-football star said, “Before the election in Edo, I said Obaseki would win. Is that true? Did he win? Nobody said it anywhere. Nobody quoted me anywhere. I also said in the Ondo election that Akeredolu would win. Is that true? Did he win? He won.
“Now, I want you to put this out the way I want it. Donald Trump will win the election by a slight split edge over Joe Biden. So, quote me and I want it to be out before time.”
After the votes were counted, Trump lost the election to Biden, although the result is now being challenged in Supreme court by Trump.
See some reactions on social media from people concerning the prophecy below:
@M4micheal tweeted, “He predicted and made it look like God was speaking through him. If Trump had won, his prediction would’ve been right and he would’ve told his congregation that God did it, but God isn’t an author of confusion.”
@infonaija_247, “No, this cannot be Pastor Taribo West, former Super Eagles of Nigeria no-nonsense defender. This must be Taribo North.”
“The quest for fame and cheap popularity will make men pride in themselves,” tweeted @amablacknaija.
@mykkel3, “One thing I know about this wrong prophecy was that he wanted to glorify himself after the first two corrected ones, that was why he needed a camera to put it on social media…He forgot that he is not God.”
