In his new year predictions released in December 2015, General Overseer of Omega Fire Ministries, Apostle Johnson Suleiman, stated that Nigeria would witness serious political developments.
Expressing sadness on the death of Ocholi on Sunday, Suleman, reiterated his charge on Nigerians to pray ceaselessly for themselves and office holders.
Speaking through his media manager, Folorunsho Hamsat, Suleman specifically called for divine intervention “so that a sitting state Governor would not die before the year runs out.”
“The apostle received the news with sadness and again stated that a governor may die next.
“He will speak to the public soon but for now, his condolence on Mr. James Ocholi’s death goes to the federal government, the people of Kogi, his friends, family, staff and others touched by the unfortunate incident,” Hamsat said.
Recall that shortly after President Buhari was elected, Apostle Suleiman had predicted that Nigerians may be forced to hurl stones at the president in frustration if they did not see the highly publicized change by the new government. Judging by the current economic situation in the country, one may say that the cleric was right because the government has faced severe criticisms over the persistent economic hardship in the country.
