Liberia's Presidential Election: George Weah visits T.B. Joshua’s church
George Weah, the footballing legend and leading presidential candidate in Liberian presidential election on Sunday visited the Synagogue Church of All Nations (SCOAN) in Lagos State, Nigeria, to seek the support of Pastor TB Joshua to win the November 7 runoff election.
Weah will face Joseph Boakai, the incumbent vice-president, in the runoff.
The clergyman during his sermon 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,” 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.”
The cleric reiterated that he was not favouring any particular side of the political spectrum but his own role was to pray for “the will of God” to be done in the nation of Liberia.
“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”.
“Without God’s corresponding power, we cannot pray to Him. For every step we take – every movement and action – intimation comes first.
“There must be a suggestion from the Spirit to move before we move. If truly I am a man of God, I must hear from God – move or don’t move.”
Joshua disclosed that Liberia’s incumbent Vice President and Weah’s contender, Joseph Boakai, had also contacted him to request a meeting.
“God’s opinion is what we should seek in our country – simple! God is the Answer, the Final,” the cleric added.
Also in attendance was Senator Yormie Johnson, a former Liberian warlord.
The presidential run-off election between the former AC Milan star and Boakai is scheduled to hold on November 7, 2017.
