The leading presidential candidate in Liberia and football legend George Weah on Sunday was at the Sunday Church service of the Synagogue Church Of All Nations (SCOAN) in Lagos, Nigeria.
The famous Liberian Senator was said to have come to the Church service to “seek God’s face” for his country, before heading to the polls on the 7th of November.
During the sermon by Prophet T.B. Joshua which was broadcast live on the popular Christian channel called Emmanuel TV, he warmly welcomed Weah and spoke directly to him.
“My brother is here today because he loves his country and wants God’s choice for his country,” T.B. Joshua stated.
“He is not here to impose himself. What does God say about his country, Liberia? What is God’s opinion? That is why he is here.”
He added that “we are not herbalists or witch-doctors; we are people of God. God’s choice is our choice. We cannot pray against God’s will,” T.B. Joshua stressed, with Weah nodding firmly in agreement. “Without God’s corresponding power, we cannot pray to Him. For every step we take – every movement and action – intimation comes first,” he further expounded.
Prophet Joshua, who is known for political neutrality, noted that Liberia’s incumbent Vice President and Weah’s contender in the upcoming presidential run-off, Joseph Boakai had also contacted him to request a meeting.
The presidential run-off election between Weah and Boakai is scheduled to hold on November 7, 2017.
Other prominent visitors to The SCOAN in the past have included Tanzania’s President, John Magufuli, the late President of Ghana, John Atta Mills, Zimbabwean Prime Minister Morgan Tsvangarai and Julius Malema, South Africa’s fiery opposition leader.
