Ambassador Raphael Horsfall, an Ambassador for Peace and Conflict Management for the United Nations at the Aso Rock in Abuja, says Prophet TB Joshua’s message to Nigeria’s former President, Goodluck Jonathan was the only reason Nigeria was in peace and calm after the 2015 presidential elections.
The Abuja-based politician made this known on Sunday at The Synagogue Church Of All Nations, SCOAN in Lagos.
Horsfall who served as a Special Assistant to Prof Rufai Alkali, the Political Adviser of Jonathan, explained how the controversial Nigerian Prophet revealed the outcome of the elections to him several weeks prior to the actual vote.
He said, “TB Joshua categorically told me that I should go and tell Mr. President that it is too late, that nothing can be done, that we will lose the election but God will prevail on the peace of Nigeria.
“That is why when we lost elections, I was at peace.
“My visit to The SCOAN came after a meeting with Jonathan and his wife Dame Patience where I suggested they sought ‘spiritual guidance’ from Joshua as the tense time of elections neared.
“Mr. President was calm after hearing that word from Prophet T.B. Joshua.
“Everyone was telling him to annul the election, which he had the power to do, but nobody knew this is actually the reason why His Excellency conceded defeat to the opposition,” he added.
Horsfall further explained that his initial encounter with Joshua came in 2009 when he was part of a delegation from the Niger-Delta region who sought spiritual solution at The SCOAN to the growing menace of militancy.
“The guidance he gave to us, which we communicated to the then President, His Excellency Umaru Musa Yar-Adua, was what led to the Amnesty Program which Nigerians and the entire people of the region are enjoying presently,” Horsfall said.
