Let’s start with the issue of security on which many Nigerians think government hasn’t done much because kidnapping and banditry have continued to fester across the country despite the measures taken by the authorities. Where do you stand? For proper assessment of efforts by government, it is important to do fact checking on what was inherited and what obtains now.

In recent time and in the past, several Nigerian pastors have uttered prophecies using the name of God. But to the consternation of all, such prophecies never came to pass. What went wrong? Can God be lying? No! The bible said in Hebrew 6:18 “That by two immutable things, in which it was impossible for God to lie…” If God cannot lie, who lied? It means the prophets lied for their prophecies not coming to pass. Deuteronomy 18:22 said: “When a prophet speaketh in the name of the LORD, if the thing follow not, nor come to pass, that is the thing which the LORD hath not spoken, but the prophet hath spoken it presumptuously: thou shalt not be afraid of him.” Below are some Nigerian pastors whose prophecies failed overtime.
