Head and Spiritual Leader of INRI Evangelical and Spiritual Church, Oke Afa, Isolo, Lagos, Primate Elijah Babatunde Ayodele, needs no introduction among members of the Lord’s Vineyard who have predicted positively for the love of country. In his own case, he has predicted things which stand him out from what many have described as prophecy of doom.
Meanwhile, this time, he says Nigeria would not know peace until it has prayed hard to remove the curse placed on the country by the grusome murder of Nigeria’s first and only Prime Minister, Alhaji Abubakar Tafawa Balewa. Ayodele would prophesy and round it off by saying, “I am so much pained when my negative prophecies come to pass due to the nonchalance attitude of the people concerned.” He, however, has tried, as a man of God, to organise prayers conferences so that negative processes might not come to fruition in Nigeria and other countries or personalities that he claimed to have been sent to prophesy.
Ayodele, known for distinctively spelling himself out from being a pastor adding that prophets are different from pastors as, according to the Ikere, Ekiti State-born man of God, prophets are the only ones that God truly speaks to and who sees things that pastors don’t see, had prophesied many things in the past which came to pass to the extent that no one has succeeded to name him a fake prophet. Primate-Ayodele
The prophet, as far back as 2013, had recorded in his annual Warnings to the Nations (WTN), predicted that General Muhammadu Buhari would defeat Dr. Goodluck Jonathan in the 2015 presidential election and went as far as asking Jonathan not to contest the poll. That was much earlier than the Father Mbaka December 2014 prophesy in the same direction. That came to pass. In one of his recent statements, he warned that prayers should be held for God to help President Muhammadu Buhari steer the ship of the country. He pleaded that Buhari and Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu must not fight as, according him, such fight by the duo of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) would lead to the break up of the party in a way that would see some members of the APC pulling out to join a group from People’s Democratic Party (PDP) to form a new party.
He warned that Tinubu particularly should not allow it to happen even as he said the idea of CPC, Congress for Progressive Change, had not died completely as, Buhari, whom he said would have tough times emerging as the APC candidate in 2019, in the aftermath of a plot spearheaded by some leading members of the ruling party, would still bring up the CPC as things unfolded.
He said a northern agenda would spring up. All of that has happened. Ayodele also said Saraki would face challenges but warned that APC should not toy with the idea of removing him from office as Senate President as doing so would cause problems for the ruling party and government. With the withdrawal of forgery case against Saraki and his deputy, Ike Ekweremadu, it is not clear whether it has any connection with listening to the Warnings to the Nations by Ayodele or not. On Edo 2016 governorship election, he warned Governor Adams Oshiomhole to be prayerful so that Mr Godwin Obaseki he was supporting would not give him problems after he would have become governor, but the Primate made it emphatically clear Obaseki would win the poll.
On the forthcoming Ondo State election, Ayodele also warned Governor Olusegun Mimiko that he should not venture to move from Labour Party to the PDP as he said it would not work well for him. So also did he warn Governor Willie Obiano of Anambra State against decamping from APGA. He stressed that the two governors remaining in their respective parties would enable them sustain the love of their people and do a lot of good things for the respective states. Mimiko went ahead and decamped to PDP and the house of progress of yesterday became a house of chaos for the man once known to be the Iroko of Ondo politics. The Primate spoke recently to Sunday Vanguard on issues in Nigeria and across the world. You said there could be bomb blast in America, and now we have a report of bomb blast in New York, particularly as world leaders are gathering to discuss world peace and the rest of that.
Is there any correlation between what you have said and what has happened?
The bomb blast had been predicted in the 2015/2016 edition of my Warnings to the Nations (WTN). I don’t know the correlation you want but I have been giving credit to God. And to every government, it is obligatory that it must listen and watch. Terrorists are still going to attack America, but what happened is just a sign of the terrorism that is going to attack America. And that is why that question must be picked and pushed to America for journalists who are able to meet the President of America. And that is why Hillary Clinton must strategise so that she can win the Nov 8 presidential election so that some people will not disorganise her plans. Besides, let’s pray against what will cause violence that will make people to run up and down in America. Hillary Clinton’s presidency will bring peace to the world I will tell you that America will be better under Hillary Clinton and world leaders will agree with Hillary Clinton’s presidency. She has a symbolic importance that will be beneficial to the whole world, because she will be the first woman to rule the world’s most powerful nation. Hillary becoming the President of America is not going to be news because it is long predicted, but she will face some challenges to get there. Meanwhile, if Donald Trump wins the American presidency, it is going to be a problem to the whole world. So Hillary must strategise because Trump’s emergence is going to be a calamity to the whole world. Hillary must strategise in order to succeed at all costs. She must work on some states in America and then we have to pray for her so that she can complete the task. On tremor in Nigeria, we should pray very well because we will experience another one.
Have we had one?
We had one in Kaduna, so we must be very prayerful; we must not joke with it I told you the other time that polio has not gone, Ebola has not gone, Lasar fever has not gone; government should be watchful about all these because they have not gone. And Boko Haram insurgency is not yet over and our security agencies must not sleep because the terrorists are targeting Abuja, Adamawa, Borno, in Yobe, Plateau, Benue,
What is your view on Ghana election?
Yeah, Mahammah must not sleep. He must still try in order to get it right. He should work on the economy and create job opportunities. Mahammah will make it, but he must work very hard. Ghana really needs change. He must take the right steps in order to maintain the seat.
What do you see on the state of the nation?
The bloodshed and challenges faced by the Buhari government to make Nigeria better are unfortunate, but the blood of the unjustly slain Nigeria’s first and only Prime Minister Abubakar Tafawa Balewa is haunting Nigeria. The murder has placed a curse on Nigeria and that is why as much as the current government appears to be transparent and sincere people complain. What Nigeria needs now is serious prayers; all religious groups in Nigeria should come together and pray in their respective ways for the curse placed on Nigeria by the gruesome murder of the innocent Tafawa Balewa to be removed.
