Senior Pastor of Dunamis International Gospel Centre, Pastor Paul Enenche, on Wednesday posted a video of himself on Instagram praying for Nigeria.
The 54-year-old preacher has been very vocal about the 2023 general elections and has not hidden his preference for the Labour Party’s presidential candidate, Peter Obi.
Following the February 25 election, Enenche told his congregation that the behaviours that were exhibited by some political leaders and their thugs during the election were similar to those that are common in the animal kingdom.
He said, “Unfortunately, the human demons in our custody and their lunatic agents in various parts of the country didn’t allow for a peaceful and just election in those places. Videos recordings of their misdeeds were flying from Lagos, Rivers, Kogi, Anambra, Abuja etc, with thugs at the helm of affairs in certain units.
“Some were saying ‘if you are not voting our party, leave here’ at a polling unit in Lagos and a policeman was standing there.”
He continued, “The question is: who are the kinds of leaders or aspirants who would orchestrate those kinds of criminalities? They are worthless, valueless and mobile disasters that have neither credibility nor quality to command any form of followership or win elections, so they have to resort to criminality, thuggery and all forms of manipulative devices to attempt to win.”
His statement forced the APC presidential campaign council to demand his arrest by the police.
However, hours after Bola Tinubu of the APC was declared president-elect, Enenche posted a video to Instagram of himself, speaking in tongues and saying, “I announce to you, Satan, your agenda for Nigeria cannot stand.”
