From KEHINDE ADEWOLE, Ado-Ekiti
Reports from the dailies and online platform’s have shown that the leader of the Inri Evangelical Spiritual Church, Primate Elijah Babatunde Ayodele had actually predicted the removal of ex-governor of Imo State, Mr. Emeka Ihedioha before the Reverend Mbaka of the Adoration Ministry in Imo State made his own prediction about the development.
The media has been awashed with reports that Mbaka had accurately predicted the sack of Ihedioha a few days before the Supreme court announced it on Tuesday, January 14.
Meanwhile, some other men of God, particularly Primate Ayodele had dropped the predictions since January 2019 that some governors in Nigeria would not survive their tenure.
In publications in several dailies which were also published in hard copies, Primate Ayodele had predicted Ihedioha’s sack, victory of Governor Seyi Makinde in Oyo, electoral challenges of Governor Wike in Rivers State, as well as APC’s victories in other states in a press release made available to journalists in Ado-Ekiti in January ,2019 while explaining the defeat of former Vice President Atiku Abubakar in the last presidential polls.
According to the release by his spokesman, Kehinde Balogun, Primate Ayodele had said: “APC will take Kaduna, Kano, Gombe, Jigawa, and Nasarawa, but they won’t take Niger and Adamawa. The poll in Oyo will be between ADC and PDP.
“Governor Amosun should not underestimate Dapo Abiodun as he will shake the state…
Governor Wike will not have it easy winning a second time. He should note this. Emmanuel Udom must also strategise if he wants to win. If APC is not very careful, they will lose Zamfara polls.
Jigawa, Gombe Adamawa, Ogun, Ekiti, Ondo, Akwa Ibom, and Rivers will be war zones in the coming elections. Governor Akeredolu should be prayerful so that he won’t face daunting challenges. He must work so well on the court case. Not all the governors will complete their tenure.”
