The deputy governor of Ebonyi State, Kelechi Igwe has rejected a recent prophecy that some deputy governors will fall apart with their principals before the end of their tenures.
The prophecy was reportedly given recently by the Spiritual Head of the INRI Evangelistic Spiritual Church, Primate Elijah Ayodele.
But reacting to the prophecy on Tuesday, Igwe described the prophecy as fallacious and one intended to create rancour and disaffection in the polity. Igwe said the prophesy was nothing but a figment of Ayodele’s imagination and urged the public to ignore the prophet “for he knows what he is doing.”
In a statement he issued on behalf other deputy governors, Igwe said, “Ordinarily, we would have ignored this so-called prophecy but doing so could create the impression that we believe him or that that he should be taken seriously.
“We make bold to state that this prophecy, like the ones before it, are fallacies meant to create tension, rancour and unnecessary friction in the polity.
“We vehemently reject this so-called prophesy, which, in our own estimation, is nothing but a figment of the imagination of the man who released it.
