Joshua, on his Twitter page, said:

“Politics, campaigns and elections in any democratic country in the world are never about one person; it is about the country we care for and love.
“Whatever happens, we must accept the outcome and then look to the future – to Jesus, the Author and Finisher of our faith. Don’t forget – democracy is all about accommodation.
“All democrats must value the process of democracy more than the product.”

Joshua on Monday, November 2, made some predictions ahead of the ongoing US presidential election.
