|There has been a deluge of news relating to the revelation that Prophet TB Joshua predicted the outcome of the stunning U20 World Cup Final between Ghana and Brazil to Coach Sellas Tetteh. Here is one such report from Peace FM…
Amidst spontaneous and widespread outburst of adulation to God by Ghanaians for masterminding the Black Satellites victory over Brazil in the FIFA World U-20 Tourney in Egypt, Prophet T.B. Joshua, the Nigerian Man Of God with close links to President Mills, has flaunted his role in the Satellites’ triumph and revealed that he predicted the victory and helped in achieving the glory.
It would be recalled that the revered man of God had predicted correctly, matches involving the Super Eagles recently. On the list are the matches between Ghana and Nigeria at the Nations Cup in 2008, Nigeria versus Tunisia and the crunch tie between the Super Eagles and Mambas of Mozambique.
With President John Evans Atta Mils already acknowledging his role as the power behind the throne, Prophet T. B. Joshua of the Synagogue Church of All Nations (SCOAN) has himself revealed his own side of the story.
In a nine and a half minute footage on YouTube, a video sharing website on which users can upload and share videos, Prophet Joshua is clearly heard on phone, issuing out instructions to Coach Sellas Tetteh and later praying with the team.
“…the game, as I’ve seen it, first half-no goal, second half-no goal. You’ll do everything and your people will everything, no way. Yes, I see that penalty will determine, and that penalty will determine the winner…,” he forecasted.
When reached for his comments, Coach Sellas Tetteh, otherwise known as “Boboor” or “Bobovic”, confirmed being in touch with Prophet Joshua on phone prior to the match.
Speaking in an interview with Kwami Sefa Kayi on PEACEFM’s flagship programme “Kokrokoo”, Sellas Tetteh revealed that he was introduced to the SCOAN leader by a friend some six months ago, even though he (Sellas) is not a member of the church. He further disclosed that he communicated with the man of God before the commencement of the finals.
“He told me we would win the trophy before the tournament and on the day of the game he again predicted it…I believed in him as a friend and a prophet, but I also believed we would win the trophy…to be honest with you and in the name of God, he even predicted the red card booking by the referee to our player (Daniel Addo) and subsequently warned us of the tough times that will befall in the hands of the Brazilians.” Bobovic said.
Sellas Tetteh, who is the first local coach to guide a youth side to claim the prestigious FIFA U-20 World Cup for the first time in Africa, again confirmed that Prophet T.B Joshua, expressly told him who should take the first kick for the Black Satellites during the penalty shoot-out.
“…at a point in time he even directed before the penalty shootout that the player in 10 jersey (Dede Ayew) should be elected to effect the first kick, which I obliged not because of his directive but due to the fact that he was the captain of the side and to me the best and most influential player on the field in the final match” he stressed.
The Black Satellites won the World Under-20 trophy last Friday, October 16 after a tense and a dramatic penalty shootout, which Ghana won 4-3 against Brazil.
