Primate Ayodele Cautions Buhari Against 2019 Ambition
Predicts Nigeria’s Break Up In 2035
THE General Overseer of the Inri Evangelical Spiritual Church, Lagos, Elijah Ayodele, has advised president Buhari to step down in 2019, even as he predicated that Nigeria will breakup into five entities by 2035.
The cleric, who announced the prophesies at the press presentation of his book of prophesies, Warningstothenations, in Lagos, stated that the 2019 elections would spring up surprises.
He said the clamour for restructuring by APC won’t work, but the people agitating for restructuring will take it up.
“Nigeria will be no more from 2035; she will be divided into five nations as from 2035; two of them will be greater than the other three. Nnamdi Kanu will not actualise Biafra, but Biafra will be part of the entities that will lead to the breakup of Nigeria towards 2035. There will be a big referendum and the results will determine what will happen in Nigeria. After the referendum, everyone will go his or her own separate ways and there will be no bloodshed. However, the army and IPOB clash will still cause a lot and if the government sleeps, they will destabilise the country,” he said.
On the 2019 elections and possibility of the APC retaining power at the centre, the clergy said, “the APC can retain the presidential seat if they settle their inhouse discrepancies. If they don’t get that right, PDP may take it from them but I still see a northern president ruling Nigeria in 2019. The next president will come from the north; Atiku cannot make it and neither can El-rufai. They won’t give it to Osinbajo, so let’s wait till then,” he said.
While urging president Buhari to step down in 2019 to take care of his ill health, Ayodele said, “the point is that Buhari’s health is in a terrible situation and if he decides to play politics it with his health, it will affect him at the end of the day. Buhari needs to step down in 2019; anybody can criticise this prophecy, as they like. This is a message from God and if Buhari contests in the 2019 election, he will not finish his term. The country will not go on right,” he cautioned.
On why he criticized religious leaders in his book, he explained, “anyone, who isn’t spiritually sound should not be allowed to lead a church; Many Nigerian church leaders only celebrate the rich. They don’t want to see the poor; they want to ride limousines and build houses in Banana Island. They want to fly first class flights simply because they want to live flamboyant lifestyle. When we had Ayo Oritsejafor as CAN president, during his tenure Christianity was zero. Now, we have another Ayokunle leading CAN and I have not seen the impact of his government.
