Primate Elijah Ayodele, the leader of the INRI Evangelical Spiritual Church, responded to Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu’s win in the recently held presidential election on behalf of the APC.
Primate Ayodele claimed that God is against Tinubu’s election in a statement signed by his media assistant, Osho Oluwatosin, and predicted that the next administration will be marked by anguish, hardship, failure, and economic disappointment.
He declared that because the people’s will was stolen, the new government won’t be any better than the outgoing one.
He clarified that the APC aims to cause confusion in the religious community and that it is not God’s intention for Christians to hold positions of leadership in Nigeria.
He made it known that the incoming government will not be any better than the outgoing government because the will of the people was stolen.
He explained that it is not part of God’s plans that Christians will not be part of leadership in Nigeria and that the APC wants to stir confusion in the religious sector.
‘’I am seeing a new government of sorrow, hardship, failure, economic disappointment, there will be more hardship because God never approved another APC government for Nigerians. Under this new government, Nigeria will not be regarded internationally, this government will not make it better than what we experienced in the outgoing government.
“This is not the government God approved for us. God has not approved Nigeria to be an Islamic republic, he has not said Christians will not be part of the government but these people have berated God, they want to stir confusion in the religious sector but God has rejected them.’’
Primate Ayodele asserted that Nigerians and even the APC will not enjoy the incoming government and that Tinubu will be the last president the APC will produce because they have deprived the people of their rights and made people lose hope in democracy.
‘’INEC and APC colluded to steal the will of the people, God will definitely fight for the cause of the people at the appropriate time. Nigeria will not enjoy this government, even the APC will not enjoy this government and Tinubu will be the last president the party will produce. The party will go into oblivion very soon because the present government has deprived people of their rights, they have made people suffer and lose hope in democracy. ‘’
The cleric referred to his warnings to Atiku and Peter Obi about the desperation of Tinubu to become the next president of Nigeria while berating the INEC chairman for the role he played in the 2023 presidential election.
‘’I warned Atiku and Peter Obi in my prophecies before the election that Tinubu is willing to do all he can to get victory but they didn’t listen. I also told Nigerians that BVAS will fail, I warned the INEC chairman to stand his ground on BVAS and electronic transmission of results but the chairman compromised. INEC is meant to be independent but this one is satanic for Nigeria.’’
Also, Primate Ayodele lauded the youths and opposition parties for not engaging in violence to express displeasure in the 2023 presidential election. He urged the judiciary to give the right judgments in order to escape God’s wrath.
