Desperate times they say demand desperate measures. That seems to be the situation now as both contenders in the Liberian elections have all sought solace in the Lord.
Ahead of the run off scheduled for November 17, former footballer and one of the contenders, George Weah on Sunday visited powerful Nigerian televangelist, T.B Joshua.
Weah had rushed to T.B Joshua’s Synagogue Church of All Nations in Lagos to seek spiritual help in becoming victorious in an election many experts have predicted to be difficult to call.
Addressing the ex-footballer, T.B Joshua noted for his spiritual prowess said it is important to seek the face of God since He is the final decider in all matters.
“My brother is here because he loves his country and wants to know God’s choice for his country. He wants to hear God’s opinion about his country. He is not here to impose himself. What does God say about his country, Liberia?
“Without corresponding power, we cannot pray to God. We cannot pray against God’s will. God’s choice is our choice. If I am a true man of God, I must hear from God. Every step we take, every movement and action – intimation comes first. There must be a suggestion from the Spirit to move before we move.”
Interestingly and coincidentally, the man of revealed during the service that Weah’s other contestant, Vice President Joseph Boakai has also served notice that he plans to visit the man of God.
But the powerful man of God was quick to add that he is just a vessel who relays only what God reveals.
“I am happy that our Vice President also sent an email that he would like to meet me. God’s opinion is what we should seek in our country. God is the Answer, the Final.”
Both Vice President Joseph Boakai and George Weah will battle it out in the final battle of the presidential run-off on November 17.
The runoff follows the inability of any candidate to secure more than 50% of total votes cast to be declared winner as stipulated by the Liberian constitution.
In the results released by the country’s electoral body in the October 10 election, Weah won 39 percent of votes cast while Boakai got 29 percent.
