Nigerians have thronged the social media to carpet a former Super Eagles defender, Taribo West over his prediction on the recently concluded presidential poll in the United States of America.
In the viral video, West predicted that incumbent Donald Trump, would defeat Joe Biden by a slim margin.
His prediction has continued to spark a debate on social media with many mocking the ex-defender over the prophecy, which was posted on social media before the election but only went viral after the poll had ended.
West, who is also a pastor, said he rightly predicted the victory of Edo State Governor, Godwin Obaseki; and his Ondo State counterpart, Rotimi Akeredolu, but his prophecy did not go viral on social media.
He subsequently prophesied that Trump would defeat Biden by a slim margin and asked his supporters to ensure that his prophecy goes viral.
The ex-football star said, “Before the election in Edo, I said Obaseki would win. Is that true? Did he win? Nobody said it anywhere. Nobody quoted me anywhere. I also said in the Ondo election that Akeredolu would win. Is that true? Did he win? He won.
“Now, I want you to put this out the way I want it. Donald Trump will win the election by a slight split edge over Joe Biden. So, quote me and I want it to be out before time.”
However, Biden went on to win the election which is now being challenged in court by Trump.
West’s prophecy, however, became a huge subject of debate on social media on Tuesday with many describing him by certain names.
