The Leader of INRI Evangelical Spiritual Church, Lagos, Primate Elijah Ayodele, has said that politicians use his prophecies for their selfish interests.
The clergyman stated this while addressing journalists in Lagos on Friday on his yearly book of prophesies for 2023.
The Primate responded to a question on why he is contradicting himself, when he said that the Peoples Democratic Party presidential candidate for the 2023 elections, Atiku Abubakar, will emerge as the president of Nigeria.
According to him, God is always speaking to his prophets and has not said anything as at now.
Ayodele said: “Politicians twist my prophecy for their selfish interest.
“The book was published in July, 2022, but God will always speak to you as a prophet.
“As at now, God has not said anything about who will be the winner, but one person will emerge.”
This is coming barely 24 hours after the Chief Spokesman of the PDP Presidential Campaign Council, Dino Melaye, shared a video on his social media page of a prophecy given by the Primate.
According to Ayodele, in July 2022, Abubakar and the candidate of the Labour Party, Peter Obi, cannot make Nigeria any better than it is.
He, however, said things will become worse of the candidate of the All Progressives Congress, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, emerges the president in 2023.
He said: “Not Atiku or Peter Obi can make Nigeria any better; I have not seen any fantastic candidate that can turn Nigeria around.
“But one person must be there no matter the situation.
“Tinubu and APC can only win by rigging, I don’t hate him, but I’m speaking as the prophet of God.
“If Tinubu becomes president, Nigeria will be worse than Buhari’s government; Nigeria will be stagnant, a failed nation, a disgraced nation.
“Tinubu will become a pandemic, disaster, calamity on Nigeria; mind you, I don’t hate him, but I’m speaking as a prophet of God.
“The election is for PDP, but if they fail to restrategise properly, then they will give it to Tinubu.”
Ayodele stated that Nigerians are about to make the same mistake they made in 2015.
He said: “We clamoured for a change in 2015 but it became worse and now we are about to make the same mistake.
“Until we change and start seeking the face of God during election.
“It is sad for Christian Association of Nigeria as a religious body to engage in politicking, they have failed to seek the face of God.
“I don’t believe in CAN, Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria, unification.
“They are corrupt, they are not religious, they are just a group of corrupt people.
“That is why I don’t believe in CAN or PFN.
“It is not divine, there is no grace in it.
“I am not bothered if they say I predict my prophecies.
“Tinubu would have been a better candidate but God is against Muslim-Muslim ticket and I stand by the word of God.
“Atiku, Obi and Tinubu are selfish because they won’t give Nigeria what they want.
“Obi will try a bit but he won’t do much.
“Atiku would not do any serious thing.
“Tinubu would not do much.”
