The All Progressives Congress (APC) has said it cannot run a political party by prophecy. This was in reaction to father Mbaka’s comments during his church’s cross-over service. The Revered father had instructed President Buhari not to run for office in the year 2019 if he does not want to be disgraced by Nigerians
APC’s national secretary, Bolaji Abdullahi reacted to the Reverend Father’s claim who described the president’s strategy for fighting corruption as archaic, adding that he was advised by “the Lord” to tell the president he shouldn’t “come out for second tenure” and “retire peacefully.”
Abdullahi said a prophecy is a matter of “personal conviction,” and a political party cannot take critical decisions based on prophecies. He said:
We cannot run a political party by prophecy. Prophecy is a matter of personal conviction or personal belief. The party cannot act based on any kinds of prophecies because we are not operating on that. We only act based on what is politically correct. People are free to believe such prophecies but our party will not act or take critical decisions based on prophecies.
