As the general election draws near, Senior Pastor of the Bible Base Miracle Assembly, Nkpor, Idemili North local government area of Anambra State, Rev Jerry Nwachukwu, has predicted victory for the presidential candidate of the Labour Party (LP), Peter Obi.

Speaking during his New Year’s message on Sunday, January 1, 2023, the cleric said;
"Peter Obi will be victorious in the 2023 presidential election. Let us pray there will be no room for a run-up. There will be stiff resistance by the powers that be to subvert the people's choice, but Nigerian youths will stop them."

In a publication cited on, its Anambra state regional reporter noted that the cleric was of the view that the presidential race will be mainly between Peter Obi of the Labour Party (LP), and Bola Tinubu of the All Progressives Congress (APC); but that Tinubu will not win.

According to Rev Nwachukwu, he said that the Nigerian youth will strongly support Peter Obi and that although there will be attempts to rig the elections, the plan will not succeed.

The cleric urged people to note down his prophesy. He added that his omission of Atiku Abubakar, the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party from his prophesy is that "he is an outsider in the race."

In his prophesy, the cleric warned against a plot by close allies of Anambra state Governor, Charles Soludo to undermine his government with their self-centred pieces of advice capable of derailing his administration's infrastructural developmental agenda.

"The people surrounding him are the ones to fail him and his government. Those that love the governor with honest hearts should pray for him to remain focused, because, whatever Soludo achieves as governor under this dispensation will determine his future political career - especially his second-term aspiration."

Rev Nwachukwu also predicted the death of some prominent men of God, terrible plane crashes and earthquakes in Japan, America's economy will drop; while China, according to him, will suffer because of their "wickedness."
