Still on Twitter trends list, Nigerian Prophet TB Joshua is currently topping the trend on Nigerian Twitter after his prediction about Hillary Clinton’s victory flopped.
On Sunday 6th November 2016, TB Joshua told a packed congregation at the Synagogue, Church Of All Nations (SCOAN) that he saw the outcome of the US election in a vision. He further revealed that a woman will win the election.
Apparently, he must have misinterpreted the vision.
