Panam Percy Paul, Nigerian gospel singer, says God has rejected President Muhammadu Buhari like he did to “unintelligent” King Saul in the Bible.
The artiste spoke in a YouTube video in which he delivered a cryptic prophecy on Buhari, while comparing the current situation in Nigeria to what happened in Israel during the time of Saul.
The link to the video was shared on Twitter by Reno Omokri, former aide to ex-President, Goodluck Jonathan.
Paul, in the video, said God told him Buhari was imposed on him by the church in Nigeria in 2015.
The Jos-born musician said God told him Buhari, like Saul, lacked what is required to “govern his people”.
“The Lord honestly said that I should tell this people and bring you word of comfort. It’s a word of prophecy. To let you know, that this King Saul was not his choice. That King Saul was imposed upon him”, he said.
“God said Saul was imposed upon him, it was not his choice. It was the church that imposed King Saul on God. The Lord warned us and said, this is what he (Saul) would do…he would take your daughters and make them into his confectionaries. He would take your sons to run ahead of his chariots. He would make them servants.
“The one that caught my attention the most is when he said he would take your choice land and give it to his kinsmen. That is exactly what is playing out in our nation. I took time to really plead before the Lord.
“Actually for months, I kept crying, it went into years. The error started in 2014 when we said this man is the most righteous man, the only righteous man. How can you give the title of Jesus Christ to a man? So, from 2015, we started crying after realising our errors”.
However, he said God told him he has already prepared a David to restore the country.
“Unfortunately, those who stood up loud to say this is the man haven’t publicly apologise for their mistake. But I said to the Lord, if I am the David of the last days, then I am here pleading before you. I said Lord, I have been calling upon you from 2015 to 2020 and said to him out of anger, does it take you this long to forgive? I thought he (God) was going to say, it’s okay, I have changed my mind,” he said.
“But he simply said to me…David is coming. Then I said to the Lord, what then happens to Saul, he replied, I have rejected him from ruling my people. I have found a new king after my own heart, he also told me whatever happened in the time of Saul is what is happening now. Then I asked him what?
“He said what qualification does Saul have to become a king? He was not intelligent; he could not even tell the footprints of donkeys. This one… The Lord said to me, the only qualification Saul had was his height. Only height, no qualification.
“This one (Buhari) also has no primary school certificate, no secondary. None. Everybody has checked everywhere for his certificates; he does not have any…only height. So, I asked the Lord what would happen, he told me he is going to take them out. I said if you take them out, what about their sons, then he said what happened to Saul, did he die alone?
“The Lord said to me, for the next 40 years, these people will struggle, they will try everything to come back, and they will not succeed. I calculated 40 years from now; I will be 110. After 40 years, there will not be a remembrance of them anymore, forever.”
