The leader of INRI Evangelical Spiritual Church, Primate Elijah Ayodele has revealed the likely winner of the Imo State governorship election.
He spoke on Tuesday while issuing some fresh prophecies about the forthcoming governorship elections in Kogi, Edo, and Imo States.
Primate Ayodele also spoke on the outcome of the governorship elections in Enugu and Kaduna States.
In a statement signed by his media aide, Osho Oluwatosin, Primate Ayodele warned the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, candidate in Kogi State, Dino Melaye, to seek God’s face regarding his ambition because the election won’t be an easy one.
He revealed that there would be obstacles against him in the contest which can only be conquered by seeking the face of God more.
According to Ayodele: “The candidate of the PDP in Kogi State, Dino Melaye, should seek the face of God more concerning his ambition. The election will not be an easy task, and I see several obstacles standing against him in the contest. These obstacles can only be conquered by God, he needs to seek God’s face more.’’
In Imo State, Primate Ayodele stated that Governor Hope Uzodinma can only be defeated through a strong coalition, adding that the PDP would not make any serious impact in the election.
He said: ‘’In Imo State, I am saying it again that only a strong coalition can defeat Governor Hope Uzodinma. PDP isn’t in this governorship race, they can’t make any impact. The opposition parties should come together if they want to defeat the incumbent governor.’’
For the Edo State election, which will be coming up in 2024, Primate Ayodele advised the PDP to nominate the deputy governor, Philip Shaibu as its candidate.
‘’I advise the PDP to nominate the deputy governor, Phillip Shaibu as its candidate for the Edo governorship election in 2024. The election will not be an easy one for them; the party needs a formidable candidate,’’ he said.
Speaking on the recently concluded governorship elections in Kaduna and Enugu State, Primate Ayodele advised the winners not to celebrate yet because he foresees the court ruling out their victory.
‘’In Kaduna and Enugu state, the candidates of the APC and PDP that were declared as winners shouldn’t celebrate yet. The battle isn’t over, as I foresee the court ruling out their victory. I still see the victory in Kaduna going back to the PDP candidate, Ashiru Kudan, while Labour Party candidate, Chijioke Edeoga, will reclaim victory in Enugu state,’’ he said.
Primate Ayodele urged the candidate of the NNPP in Taraba state, Sani Yahaya, not to drag the election outcome in the state to court because God has sealed the victory of PDP’s Agbu Kefas.
“The candidate of the NNPP in Taraba State, Sani Yahaya, should not bother going to court. God has sealed the victory of PDP’s Agbu Kefas. It will be a mere waste of money and time for him. He should work together with the winner in order to move the state forward,” he said.
