Nigerians are mocking former Super Eagles player cum pastor Taribo West after his prophecy about Donald Trump winning the US election went ‘over the bar.’
Taribo West who is fondly remembered on the field of play for his stylish hairstyle confidently claims he wants his declaration to be circulated all over social media because his previous prophecies about politicians winning key elections did not go viral.
“Before the election in Edo, I said Obaseki would win. Is that true? Did he win? Nobody said it anywhere. Nobody quoted me anywhere. I also said in the Ondo election that Akeredolu would win. Is that true? Did he win? He won.
“Now, I want you to put this out the way I want it. Donald Trump will win the election by a slight split edge over Joe Biden. So, quote me and I want it to be out before time.”
Moments after Joe Biden emerged victorious after thumping Trump, social media users began to poke fun at Taribo West.
A Twitter user with the handle, @M4micheal wrote: He (Taribo) predicted and made it look like God was speaking through him. If Trump had won, his prediction would’ve been right and he would’ve told his congregation that God did it, but God isn’t an author of confusion.
Another user @mykkel3 wrote, “One thing I know about this wrong prophecy was that he wanted to glorify himself after the first two corrected ones, that was why he needed a camera to put it on social media…He forgot that he is not God.”
