The General Overseer of the Mountain of Fire and Miracles Ministries (MFM), Dr Daniel Kolawole Olukoya, has cautioned clerics who are in the habit of predicting the outcome of elections in the country.
Faulting the practice of prophesying election results, Olukoya noted that the pulpit is not meant for politics.
According to him, the pulpit is meant for teaching the truth to Christians.
Olukoya stated this in a sermon on Sunday.
Ahead of the 2023 elections, the media was awash with ‘men of God’ predicting different outcomes of the polls.
Speaking on the development, Olukoya said it is “madness” for pastors to say what God has not spoken.
He said, “You see what happened in Nigeria during these last elections disgraced the religion of Christianity very well. This prophet said this person would win, and this would not win.
“‘If this one wins, I will become a herbalist, if this one wins, let them cut off my hand, if this one wins this, this one will die before his wish.’
“All did not come to pass, and they call themselves prophets. Prophets of where? It is madness when you begin to say what God does not ask you to say. The pulpit in the house of God is the pillar and ground of truth. It is not for political campaigns.”
