Senate President Bukola Saraki
A renowned seer, Primate Elijah Babatunde Ayodele, has warned politicians to be mindful of the fights happening between the Senate and the Presidency, saying that it could result in the disintegration of Nigeria.
Ayodele, who is the founder of INRI Evangelical Spiritual Church, warned that the ‘political coup’ being allegedly hatched by politicians over the raging National Assembly crisis may lead to the collapse of democracy in Nigeria.
He further added that the 2019 generl elections will be tougher than 2015.
The clergyman predicted that embattled Senate President, Bukola Saraki will win the presidential election if he grabs the ticket of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP).
Ayodele spoke on Wednesday in his native Ikere-Ekiti at an empowerment programme he organized in memory of his late father, Elder Olalekan Oluwadare Ayodele, who passed on fifteen years ago.
Ayodele also advised Ekiti State governor-elect, Dr. Kayode Fayemi, to listen to the people for him to succeed in his administration.
He advised Fayemi to carry the people along in his day-to-day running of the government, promising to be part of the people to checkmate the governor-elect when his regime takes off.
Ayodele advised the All Progressives Congress (APC) to put its house in order in Osun State to achieve victory at the September 22 governorship election.
He said the Osun APC has the “right candidate” adding that the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has to take lots of drastic action before making headway.
Commenting on the state of the nation, Ayodele said: “We need somebody to restructure this country, it is either we restructure or we disintegrate. The government in power hates the truth.”
On the National Assembly crisis, he said: “Whatever they are dong in the Senate or in government, that is their own problem.
“I had said that nobody can remove Saraki, I don’t know Saraki, I have not met Saraki and I don’t know Akpabio. The issue of Saraki, I am not interested because I am not a politician.
“Who is that politician that is not corrupt and who is that politician that does not steal money? Saraki is one of the anointed persons in this country. I don’t see Atiku going too far.”
“I am not defending Saraki but if Saraki is removed, PDP will sink and if PDP wants to move forward and Saraki having the ticket, PDP will win.
“This country needs prayers, the country will break. Nigerian democracy will fizzle out, PDP and APC will fizzle out. This political coup they are planning will damage the country.
“The 2019 election will be tougher than that of 2015. I see storms but we will still survive.”
