A prophet’s inspired speech or a divine plan and purpose declared through inspiration constitutes prophecy. Pastors and prophets in Nigeria enjoy making future predictions. They enjoy demonstrating to their throngs of followers that they have some sort of supernatural ability or are able to discern God’s genuine will in every circumstance.
Some Nigerian pastors or prophets have predicted the results of the general elections as they approach in 2023. Some pastors claimed to have seen visions, while others said that God had revealed who would win the 2023 presidential election to them.
However, all of these predictions focused on the three main candidates for the election: Bola Ahmed Tinubu of the All Progressives Congress, Atiku Abubakar of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), and Peter Obi of the Labour Party (LP).

Pastor Adewale Giwa
The Senior Pastor of Awaiting the Second Coming of Jesus Christ Ministry, Pastor Adewale Giwa, prophecised that the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP Atiku Abubakar will win the 2023 general election.
According to him, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu is the only one among the aspirants of the All Progressives Congress, APC, that can give Atiku a bit of hiccup in his aspiration to lead the country.
The Pastor who stated this during an interview maintained that northern leaders are rooting for Atiku due to his large followership in the north, as he added that Nigeria was created for northerners.
‘Atiku will win but he can’t change anything. Even if APC should come out with Tinubu, Atiku will win. Tinubu is the only person that can give him few challenges as such. Even Osinbajo will be a walkover for Atiku.
Reverend Shalom Kelvin Akinbo
Reverend Shalom Kelvin Akinbo, the Head Pastor of Doers Nation International Church, in Akure, the Ondo State capital, prophesised that Peter Obi, the presidential candidate of the Labour Party, has been revealed to him as the successor to President Muhammadu Buhari.
But he warned that there must be intense prayers to avert confusion in the land “because I saw a man without head but wears a crow.
“I am seeing a crown that was given in the eleventh month and this crown is been celebrated after the general election and this is an organized conspiracy we must pray against,” cautioned Prophet Akinbo, who also warned that anything outside of a free and fair election in next February’s presidential polls, where he sees the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Alhaji Atiku Abubakar as the only candidate capable of upstaging Obi, would plunge Nigeria into “total chaos as the battle is between Atiku Abubakar and Peter Obi.”
