Leader of INRI Evangelical Spiritual Church, Primate Elijah Ayodele, has denied predicting that former Vice President and Presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar would win the February 25 presidential election.
The cleric clarified that he only stated that Atiku was God’s choice but added that Nigerians might not vote for God’s choice.[READ FULL ARTICLE]
“I said and I quote that Atiku is God’s choice, but that people would not vote for God’s choice. It was recorded. I never changed it. I stand by it. I cannot change any prophecy; that is what God has revealed to me.
“Atiku is God’s choice, but people will not vote for him. I did not say anybody would win, and not even inside the story. It is online, but because some people are very gullible, they want to change the story to suit themselves. So, based on that, I have it on record,” Primate Ayodele said concerning his earlier predictions centred on Atiku being God’s choice.
“Some people will not write but pick from headlines to write their story. That is their story. There was a story in which I said APC might lose in Ondo State inside the story, and within 10 minutes not less than 300 people called me, demanding why I said so. So I had to call them to read the inside of the story. They read only the headline. So, that is just it,” Primate Ayodele said on his prediction about Atiku.
Asked on his prediction from the ongoing presidential election tribunal, he said:
“I foresee that if the tribunal does not do the needful, it will affect the image of the tribunal members. I foresee that INEC will not be seen any longer as an unbiased umpire as expected. INEC will be seen as a clearing house for all manners of election results.”
“There will be confusion in the government circles because the judgment will be very clear to all. The best option will be either they go for a rerun or another election entirely or they leave it the way it is. The ruling party will not want a rerun. They will seek various lines of defence and it will not hold water as expected.”[READ FULL ARTICLE]
