The founder of the Evangelical Church of Yahweh Worldwide, Primate Theophilus Olabayo, has declared that God told him the time has come for the emergence of a new president in Nigeria.
Premium Times reports that the man of God said this in the night of Thursday, February 10, 2017 adding that the person who would become the new president is a ‘man of destiny’.
The report quoted Olabayo as saying: “God told me that the president has done well but his time is up, Aso Rock is vacant, nobody is there. And God told me that he will raise up a man who loves Nigeria to take over.
“It’s not going to be business as usual, God is taking over this country, what happened in America is going to happen in Nigeria.
“New Nigeria will be born. Most of those people who stole our wealth, God told me that they will be exposed wherever they are.
“What God revealed to me is that enemies of this country, enemies that are always putting wrong people there to punish us… God said he has put a lion there, on the seat of the leader of this country, nobody is sitting there.
“And anybody that doesn’t love this country, that they want to go all out to fix people there, God will consume them.”
The primate had earlier called for a three-day national fasting and prayer because of an impending doom on the country.
There has been confusion over the state of health of President Muhammadu Buhari who recently sought the Senate to approve an indefinite extension of his vacation because of doctors’ advice that he remain in the UK where he had earlier spent 10 days.
The report quotes Olabayo as saying earlier: “The president has gone on leave, that’s what we were told. He’s a human being.
“Even if he’s sick, nothing is wrong for him to tell us as a country to pray for him,” the church leader had said.
“Whoever wishes him dead is an enemy of this country because the man has really tried. First time we saw a man who confronted those looters.
“And they are not happy, they’re ganging up against him. They are throwing missiles against him.
“God has allowed Buhari to start the foundation. We need to be prayerful. There is too much blood in the country.

“God is going to show people that He loves Nigeria; He’s going to teach people sense. The judgment of God is coming, there will be total cleansing.”
He said Buhari was not the messiah and that the country must be prayerful.
