The leader of the INRI Evangelical Spiritual Church, Primate Elijah Ayodele, has predicted doom for the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) and Governor Godwin Obaseki ahead of the Edo 2020 governorship election.
Naija News recalls that Primate Ayodele who had earlier warned APC and its national chairman, Adams Oshiomhole against fighting with the governor of Edo State, stated that if the ruling party is not careful, the “Edo primaries will cost APC a lot.”
Primate Ayodele said Oshiomhole is bent on easing Governor Obaseki out of politics and willing to drag him in the mud, using all necessary instrument, hence, the need for the Edo Governor to really restrategize and make more consultations.
The clergyman explained that Obaseki needs to involve God in this battle because he can’t fight it alone. He added that the worst is yet to happen in Edo and that if care isn’t taken, there will be a blood bath that will result from the power tussle between both candidates.
Primate Ayodele said: “They will take each other to court, the worst is yet to come in Edo primaries because Oshiomhole is ready to drag Obaseki through the mud and make him irrelevant in politics.
‘’My advice to Obaseki is that he should restrategize, involve God into it, intensify in prayers but as a matter of fact, Oshiomhole has eased Obaseki out of the game. He will use all avenues to get him out. He must use all means or else he will be chicken out. He should make a better consultation with his group and God.
“Oshiomhole will use necessary instrument direct or indirect, the election is out already, either direct or indirect. Ize Iyamu too will not find it easy.
“If care isn’t taken, there will be bloodbath, both parties will fight dirty before the election and after the election,” Primate Ayodele explained.
Primate Ayodele stressed that he sees that there is already a written result and that if Obaseki succeeds, he will become a political hero but it won’t be an easy journey at all. He lamented that APC hasn’t learnt its lesson yet but will do after the elections in Edo and Ondo state.
“If Obaseki succeeds, he will become a political hero but to succeed isn’t an easy thing. Oshiomhole will see it as a slap, he has ease Obaseki out of the game, he can’t fight it alone, he needs divine guidance to fight it, there is a written result already, it will cause a lot for APC. APC will be seen as a thuggery party. APC has not learnt lesson, they will in Ondo and Edo, their unity is threatened,” he said.
Primate Ayodele hilariously concluded that two of them should step down, and allow other candidates to go on.
