Our correspondent, DAVID ODEY was there and recorded the event. Here are the declarations:
If God is still speaking, He is alive. Every word I say comes from God. I did not formulate it. The Lord told me. And all of them, 100 percent shall come to pass. Not one of His words will return to him void. Nigeria shall be saved if the people in Nigeria always lift the nation up. The Lord said lift up the name of Nigeria. The Lord said lift up the flag of Nigeria. Always pray for the flag of Nigeria. The Lord said there is problem on the flag, that green, white, green. There is a spiritual history and as we continually pray that yoke on the nation which is in the flag shall be broken.
- 2019 is a year that God will provoke them to send and fetch you.
- Hidden talents, delayed promises, expected miracles, long awaited blessings shall come to you this year.
- This is thus says the Lord, “Divine favour as in Exodus 2:19 will become your portion this year.”
- Nigeria shall be saved if the people in Nigeria always lift the nation up. Lift up the name of Nigeria. The Lord says, lift up the flag of Nigeria. Always pray for the flag of Nigeria. The Lord says, there is some problem in the flag. The Green, White, Green, there is a spiritual history, and as we continually pray, yokes in the nation, which is on the flag, shall be broken.
- A new group will arise this year, just like last year, a group arose and taught against tithe and offering. This year, a new group shall arise, teaching that there is no heaven. And that heaven is not real. Many will be deceived, but you should be watchful.

- Pray for a certain state party chairman. Many states party chairmen will be under heavy physical attack in 2019 especially prior to elections.
- Women be mindful and careful of immoral and revealing dresses. God showed me clearly that there are demons that followa woman who does not properly cover herself.

Please be conscious that you are not too conscious of attracting men, less you will attract demons by your dressing.

26.Nigerian politicians who are desperate for power, in 2019, they will resort to blackmail.

Just like in America, many women will be paid to talk about this so that he can fail, but those cases, Nigerians will say, “bring out your issues.”
27.Some people plan to embarrass God and men of God. 2019 is a year they will be judged by God.
