During his lifetime.
His prophecies earned him fame and a cult following.
Often described as ‘The Man who Saw Tomorrow.’
A French astrologer, prophet, and physician. He has been credited with accurately predicting events that has shook the world. Born in the South of France in December 1503.His notable predictions includes:
The French revolution, the rise of Adolf Hitler, the development of the atomic bomb, the assassination of JF Kennedy, the September 11, 2011 attacks, and most recently, the Coronavirus pandemic which paused the world in 2020.
He said the world will come to an end in the year 3797. Though his book, ‘The Prophecies’, was published in 1555. The timeless predictions contained therein. Has become a point of reference of some sorts. Most especially, to those seeking answers to life’s most difficult questions.
On the evening of July 1, 1566,Nostradamus was said to have predicted his own death when he allegedly told his secretary Jean de Chavigny, “You will not find me alive at sunrise.” True to his words, he was found lying dead on the floor next to his bed the following morning.
If there is one thing you cannot take away from Nigeria’s politicians, it is their ability to ‘form Nostradamus.’ In 2008, the then Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Prince Vincent Ogbulafor made a controversial statement. He told all who cared to listen that the PDP will rule Nigeria for 60 years.13 years down the line, the PDP is grappling to find its place as a viable opposition.
During a press conference in Abuja on Tuesday, March 23, 2021,The All Progressives Congress (APC) Chairman of the Caretaker-Extra-Ordinary National Convention Planning Committee and Yobe State Governor, Mai Mala Buni, disclosed that the APC is working towards retaining power at the federal level for at least 36 years. He noted that the ruling APC needed to be in power to consolidate on the delivery of the dividends of democracy which it has been delivering since 2015.This statement is coming at a time when the Party is struggling to hold on to the goodwill it enjoyed from millions of Nigerians prior to the 2015 general elections. Will the desire of Mai Mala Buni come to pass? Will the APC remain beyond 2023? While I am going in search of Nostradamus’s ‘Book of Prophesies,’ This may just be the right time to consult the gods.
