Primate Elijah Babatunde Ayodele of the INRI Evangelical Spiritual Church, has disclosed that the celebrations greeting the defection by former Senate minority leader, Sen. Godswill Akpabio, from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to the All Progressives Congress (APC), won’t result into anything worthwhile.
He made the disclosure over the weekend in a chat with newsmen in Ado Ekiti, the Ekiti State capital.
According to him, those defecting to APC have destroyed the party, adding that Akpabio can’t deliver anything for APC.
Primate Ayodele, who predicted US President Trump’s victory, also warned Nigeria’s President Muhammadu Buhari to drop his second term ambition because it may bring chaos to the detriment of the masses.
Speaking further, the clergyman urged President Buhari not to contest because he wouldn’t be able to tame the cabal that would ruin his second term, saying: “I am talking as a prophet. I don’t want to know what anyone might say about this. APC government has gone in Nigeria. there is no fantastic thing about APC and this is why I say that Buhari should not contest in 2019. If he does, there will be chaos.
“Buhari isn’t corrupt but he isn’t fighting corruption, rather, it is corruption fighting back. There is no way they would do a presidential election with such huge amount of money that we won’t have corrupt practices.
“The money they have gone to borrow would not be properly utilized. We had warned against the president’s decision to borrow money from China and we are saying now that government will mismanage the money and it will all result into failure.
“People surrounding Buhari are desperate for his second term because they want to use the President to achieve their selfish desires. They will stab him in the back as the party will have issues after its primary.
As an alternative for the 2019 presidential race, Primate Ayodele urged the delegates of PDP to consider Senate President Bukola Saraki as their candidate, and to ensure a free and fair primary.
He also warned the national leader of the APC, Asiwaju Ahmed Bola Tinubu, to beware of some elements in the party, prophesying that the foremost politician would be used and dumped by the cabal allegedly holding the government of President Buhari by the jugular.
“Tinubu will be used and dumped by the ruling party.”
