The founder of Evangelical Church of Yahweh Worldwide, Primate Theophilus Olabayo, says ``time has come for a new president to emerge in Nigeria.''
``A man of destiny is going to take over in another dimension."
"God told me that the president has done well but his time is up, Aso Rock is vacant, nobody is there. And God told me that he will raise up a man who loves Nigeria to take over," said the Primate.
"It's not going to be business as usual, God is taking over this country, what happened in America is going to happen in Nigeria. New Nigeria will be born. Most of those people who stole our wealth, God told me that they will be exposed wherever they are.
"What God revealed to me is that enemies of this country, enemies that are always putting wrong people there to punish us... God said he has put a lion there, on the seat of the leader of this country, nobody is sitting there.
"And anybody that doesn't love this country, that they want to go all out to fix people there, God will consume them."
Mr. Olabayo's prophecy comes one week after he called for a three-day national fasting and prayer to avert an impending "darkness" hovering over Nigeria.
President Muhammadu Buhari began a 10 working day vacation on January 19, but wrote to extend the leave indefinitely on Feb. 5.
Last week, Mr. Olabayo had commended Buhari, describing him as the only Nigerian leader to confront corruption frontally.
"The president has gone on leave, that's what we were told. He's a human being. Even if he's sick, nothing is wrong for him to tell us as a country to pray for him," the church leader had said.
"Whoever wishes him dead is an enemy of this country because the man has really tried. First time we saw a man who confronted those looters and they are not happy, They are ganging up against him and throwing missiles against him.''
