- TB Joshua has claimed that he successfully predicted the victory of Emmanuel Macron in the French presidential election
- His church released a video in which the prophet was heard saying that tthe power of prayer will make Macron victorious
- Macron won the election with 66% of the votes.
The Synagogue Church of All Nations, which is headquartered in Lagos, Nigeria, has released a video suggesting that its leader, Prophet TB Joshua, successfully predicted the outcome of the French presidential election on Sunday.
The video captured TB Joshua saying that the power of prayer would help, Emmanuel Macron, the centrist, defeat Marine Le Pen of the National Front Party.
"It is prayer that will put him there, not anything – because of his heart for refugees and immigrants... We are praying for him and our prayer will answer.
“I am not a politician but I pray every day for Emmanuel Macron because of what he believes,” he said.
The video said TB Joshua was speaking during a live television broadcast during church service at his church on Sunday.
He is said to have made the statements shortly before the result of the election was announced.
Macron, 39, a former investment bank who has never held elected office, took 66 percent of the votes to defeat Le Pen who had 34 percent.
His victory has been hailed by his supporters as holding back a tide of populism after the Brexit vote and Donald Trump’s victory in the US election.
Macron has vowed to fight "the forces of division that undermine France" after his victory.
Acknowledging his victory, Mr Macron told supporters he wanted to ensure Le Pen voters "no longer have a reason to vote for an extremist position".
"Tonight you won, France won. Everyone told us it was impossible, but they don't know France," he said.
His win makes him France's youngest president and overturns the decades-long dominance of France's two main political parties.
