2018, year of correction: Buhari endorses Bishop Emmah Isong’s prophesy

The unique nature of this year, as prophesied by Bishop Emmah Isong of Christian Central Chapel International, Calabar, on January 1, has continued to unfold. “The Year 2018 shall be the year of the brightness of thy rising. Many whose stars were covered shall be uncovered this year. It shall be a new beginning, of correction and improvement of the past”, he had prophesied.

Has the year in any way got a semblance of Isong’s prophecy? Yes and in many ways. On Wednesday, President Muhammadu Buhari, decided to remove the evil veil that had covered the country for 25 years – 1993 to 2018, when he declared June 12 as Democracy Day. By that singular declaration, stars in the land that had been covered or hidden have been uncovered and a new beginning set out for millions of Nigerians, whose paths were closed by barriers occasioned by the political logjam of June 12, 1993.

President Buhari did not only recognise the June 12 struggle. He also honoured the symbol of the struggle, the late Moshood Kashimawo Olawale (MKO) Abiola, with the award of Grand Commander of the Federal Republic of Nigeria (GCFR), the highest honor in the land. In his reaction to the Buhari gesture, Abdulfatah Oladeinde, editor of Sunday Sun said on Facebook of the annulment of June 12, 1993 election, “Nigeria has been moving round in circles as a result of the failure of successive governments to redress the injustice done to victims of June 12 dead or alive.”

“IBB, OBJ and their accomplices not only pretended as if it didn’t matter, they also made attempts to deliberately erase June 12 from the nation’s memory. But God won’t allow the injustice of June 12 to persist forever.” It is not the first time Bishop Isong would prophesy about the recognition of June 12.

Two years ago, Isong specifically insisted in his prophecy that the Nigerian government would shift Democracy Day from May 29 to June 12 and would honour the star of the annulled election. In accordance with the prophecy, correction has been effected in the land and improvement strung on past records.

Isong sealed that prophecy on correction of a major wrong in the land thus: “2018 carries brand new packages, opened with beautiful wrappings….” Another prophecy the bishop rolled out on that day, which fulfilled far beyond the imagination of doubting Thomases said: “Pray against political clash between the Vice President of Nigeria, Prof Osinbajo. He will have tough year with his own kinsmen.

He will have strong opposition……” In the course of the year, Osinbajo has virtually become the black sheep of the Yoruba stock going by the salvo of raw criticisms and other forms of attack from the Yoruba. The pack of attackers appears to be led by Governor Ayodele Fayose of Ekiti State. One of Fayose’s most vicious verbal attacks on the vice president was in a statement he released in Ekiti on March 30.

“Nigerians are now more interested in what the government has done to make life more meaningful for them and not what the previous governments did or failed to do. “Today, the most difficult question any student can be asked to answer in an examination is to list just five landmark achievements of the government in which Prof Osinbajo is the Vice President.” Fayose was quoted as saying in the statement that he was beginning to have a second thought on the vice president’s claim to be a pastor.

It went on, “A pastor does not go about playing to the gallery and defending falsehood. Isn’t it a disgrace for a pastor of the Redeemed Church in particular to be an agent of falsehood?” Fayose asked Osinbajo to tell Nigerians what happened to the report of probe panels that he headed and how many of those indicted by the Panel have been charged to court. “Even though I have great respect for the vice president, of recent, I am constrained to begin to have a rethink.” Fayose recounted some achievements of former President Goodluck Jonathan’s administration saying, “It is almost three years, Prof. Osinbajo should tell Nigerians what their government did and stop the blame-game please.” One can be very emphatic about the fulfilment of another of Isong’s prophecy, number 34 on the row.

He said, “Not without battles and controversies, Governor Udom Emmanuel, will be lucky enough to have major opponents of his government coming out to endorse him.” This prophecy can be said to have fulfilled when Sunny Udom, director-general of All Progressives Congress (APC), 2015 Governorship Campaigns Organisation in Akwa Ibom State alongside about 20,000 members of the party dumped APC and declared for Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), at a reception organised by the youth of old Abak division comprising five local government areas at Abak on March 23. Among those who surrendered their brooms to be received back into the party were Okon Obot, a former chairman of Abak Local Government Area; Nkereuwem Dan, former House of Representatives member and a former local government chairmen and ward coordinators of APC.

The defected members said APC’s house was not in order, and as such, the party stood no chance in the next elections in the state, hence their decision to decamp to the PDP to work for Udom’s reelection. Isong is a fearless prophet in the land. He said of Bayelsa State governor, “Pray for Governor Seriake Dickson of Bayelsa State.

It will be a politically turbulent year for him. In trying to do his political permutations for his after second tenure plan, he steps on some toes while trying to arrange some things. It will backfire and people will forget his kindness”. Many are watching developments in that state in the light of this prophecy.
