"Don't testify till after inauguration", see video where TB Joshua warned David Lyon

The recent Supreme Court order which took the gubernatorial seat away from David Lyon has thrown into the air a lot of comments and side talks from within the power players down to the Common man on the street.

A video emerged where Prophet TB Joshua was heard advising Lyon not to testify his electoral victory till after his formal inauguration. Many believe the Governor elect lost his seat via the Supreme Court because he didn't yield to the advice of the man of God. Some said the instructions weren't  clear enough for him to understand. 

Another story has it that Prophet Joshua had told Lyon that his down fall will be his running mate and he should bring him for prayers. 

But when approached, Lyon's running mate was said to have told them that he goes no way. That he is a Bishop with the Brotherhood of the Cross and Star as such can't summit himself to any other person. 

Like I said Nigerians have produced many versions to this story.

Another version has it that Biobarakuma Degi-Eremienyo had informed his party that his conflicting names will be a barrier, so he didn't think he was the right person to be picked. But the party told him not to worry that they are in charge, nothing will happen. 

Unfortunately, something has happened and Oshiomhole is busy barking up and down. 

But Festus Keyamo SAN, the Hon. Minister for state, Labour and Employment has this to say over the case, "The S/Court has been firm & resolute so far regarding pre-election cases & Election Petitions. I commend their lordships. As a party, we have to look at our own internal party mechanisms that make us give our victories needlessly away to the opposition & take appropriate actions". 

This looks like the party is likely to let go of the matter. If that be the case, this will be one of the few times President Buhari will be obeying Court orders. 

This is a story of one of David Lyon's close followers:  

I am one of the entourage that followed David Lyon from Bayelsa when he visited The SCOAN three times.

I was there when Prophet TB Joshua insisted to David Lyon that he wanted to see the Deputy-Governorship candidate Senator Biobarakuma Degi-Eremienyo – because he was seeing an obstacle. However, he said he would not come to The SCOAN because he is a Secretary General to Olumba Olumba.

After Degi-Eremienyo refused to come – despite several invitations from TB Joshua – the man of God publicly declared that it was too early for Lyon to share his testimony and that the situation still required serious prayers. I believe David Lyon tried all efforts to bring him but the man refused.

Even on Tuesday, David Lyon was in The Synagogue when the Supreme Court confirmed him as the rightful candidate. TB Joshua again asked him the whereabouts of his Deputy-Governor elect, stressing that he was still seeing an obstacle. Joshua was invited as a special guest to the inauguration on Friday but he said he would not attend because of that obstacle. David Lyon laughed and told him he would come with Degi-Eremienyo to The SCOAN for testimony after the inauguration… Today, we can all see what has happened.

The question remains – who chose this man to be the Deputy-Governor? This is word and opposite. There is no way the two of them would have been able to work together effectively!
