Pri­mate Ay­o­dele Cau­tions Buhari Against 2019 Am­bi­tion

Pre­dicts Nige­ria’s Break Up In 2035

The Guardian (Nigeria) - - NEWS - By Chuks Nwanne

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.
