Senate President David Mark on Wednesday called on all those who prophesied disastrous outcome of the last Presidential election, which was held on March 28 2015 to apologise to Nigerians. Recall that several prophecies were made in which most of the prophets prophesied that a disastrous outcome awaits the nation after the election.
Mark made this call at a Special Mass at the Chapel of Testimony, Apo, Abuja, to mark his 67th birthday.
The Senate President said the prophesies led to exodus of Nigerians to their states of origin in fear of the violence predicted.
“On Election Day, people thought that the fight was going to be one that had never been seen in this country before, but God heard our prayers, the election came and went, no major incidents.
“Results were announced and President Goodluck Jonathan conceded defeat even before the final result and congratulated General Buhari.
“I think this is God’s way of telling Nigerians that he has put us together and we must remain one united country.
“Those who were predicting that this country will be gone should apologise to Nigerians; there were so many prophesy.
“The problem with all these prophets is that when things do not go their own way, they find another way of coming back and telling us that what they meant was this, they spoke in tongues and we did not understand.“As a nation, we have risen beyond the wishes of all these prophets of doom, but what is more important is that we have established a firm root of democracy in this country’’, he said.
