Pastor Jeff Okoroafor, Head Minister, Jesus Fellowship, Civic Center Lekki, says Charles Soludo’s victory at the Anambra governorship election has vindicated the Federal Government and put critics of alleged rigging plans to shame.
Okoroafor in a statement in Lagos on Thursday said the outcome has exposed those who gave false prophecies on who would emerge as governor and made strong allegations that the Buhari-led government planned to rig the election in favour of the APC.
The cleric told those who gave false prophecies to apologise to Nigerians.
”But the outcome of Anambra election has shown that those peddling those rumours were enemies of Nigeria.
“President Muhammadu Buhari’s neutrality is highly commendable because we have witnessed elections years ago, where the president in power at the time used INEC to ensure massive riggings nationwide in favour of his party.
” We all have a future to build and it can’t be built on falsehood. We must learn to refrain from information that will lead to disunity, chaos and hatred,” he said.
Okoroafor went ahead to appeal to religious leaders to avoid predictions during elections as that was not part of their calling.
He noted that there was nothing wrong in praying for any candidate that sought prayers but the result of an election should be left to God and INEC to decide.
“God has spoken in the Anambra election. The people have chosen. Those who gave false prophecies should apologise to Nigerians,” he said.
He added that aside welfare of the people, what was most important in Anambra now is security which the governor-elect must prioritise.
EPL: Michael Carrick reacts to Rangnick helping Man United in 1-1 draw with Chelsea
Manchester United interim boss, Michael Carrick has denied claims that incoming interim boss, Ralf Rangnick had a hand in Manchester United’s team selection for their Premier League clash against Chelsea on Sunday.
Former United captain, Gary Neville had said he was sure Rangnick had a hand in the game against Chelsea.
United picked up a point against Chelsea with Jadon Sancho putting the visitors ahead before Jorginho equalised from the penalty spot.
Neville had suggested that the incoming interim manager made the United team selection rather than Carrick, who is in caretaker charge at the moment.
And Gary Lineker chimed in and was in complete disagreement with Neville, writing: ‘No chance of this being true. Zero.’
And after the match Carrick was asked about the situation and he told Sky Sports, “No.”
EPL: It was penalty – Roy Keane hits Carrick after Man Utd 1-1 draw with Chelsea
Former Man United captain, Roy Keane has hit hard on the club’s caretaker boss, Michael Carrick for saying the referee made a mistake in awarding Chelsea a penalty during the 1-1 at Stamford Bridge on Sunday.
Keane said he disagreed with ‘everything’ Carrick said after the Premier League draw.
Jorginho’s penalty earned Chelsea a 1-1 draw at Stamford Bridge on Sunday, after the Italy International gifted Jadon Sancho the first goal with an error early into the second half.
Carrick said he was ‘proud’ of the team after the game, also claiming Chelsea were fortunate to be awarded a penalty after Aaron Wan-Bissaka fouled Thiago Silva in the box.
“I don’t think it was a penalty at all,” Carrick told Sky Sports.
But Keane slammed his former teammate, saying, “I disagree with everything he said in that interview. Everything he said.
“He’s talking about a plan, he’s talking about the penalty. Of course it’s a penalty. We’ve all looked at it and it’s a penalty.
“He’s talking about effort and he’s proud of them. He’s been working with them for months under Ole. All of a sudden he’s proud of them?
“Why aren’t they making an effort in the other games? He’s praising players for doing their jobs. It’s ridiculous.”
EPL: Jamie Carragher snubs Liverpool, names team to win Premier League title this season
Liverpool legend, Jamie Carragher has backed Manchester City to lift the Premier League title this season ahead of Chelsea and Liverpool.
Chelsea managed a 1-1 draw with Manchester United on Sunday to keep their place at the top of the table.
But Manchester City’s 2-1 win over West ham meant that Chelsea are now only one point ahead of Pep Guardiola’s side .
Liverpool, who thrashed Southampton 4-0 earlier on Saturday, are just two points off the top.
Carragher noted that both Chelsea and Liverpool have been impressive so far but still tipped City to defend their title.
Carragher added, “It’s been a good weekend for Liverpool but they’ve dropped some silly points this season so I’m with Roy, I think I’d probably just go with Man City.
“Liverpool have kept a few clean sheets but they’ve looked a bit open at times. I think Man City right now look really strong defensively. Liverpool are scoring all the goals but I’d go with Man City right now.”
