Call him whatever you want to call him, as controversial as he is, the leader of INRI Evangelical Spiritual Church, Primate Elijah Ayodele, has definitely carved a niche for himself in the prophetic atmosphere of the world. His prophetic statements have been confirmed to be top notch and has been topic of discussion for the general public in every aspect of the economy across the world.
As an investigative journalist, I started following the prophecies of Primate Ayodele since 2013 in Guardian newspaper, when he declared that Goodluck Jonathan, who was the Nigerian President, will not return for second term, as against the opinion of many.
Looking at the prophecy normally, one would know then that Jonathan had the power to change the outcome of election in his favour, hence, everyone had felt he would win but shockingly, he lost, thereby confirming Primate Ayodele’s prophecy.
Before the 2019 general election, Primate Ayodele stated categorically that if the Peoples Democratic Party wants to win, Dr. Abubakar Bukola Saraki should be given the ticket or else they will fail. Lo and behold, Atiku Abubakar was given the ticket. And as he said, PDP failed woefully in the election. In fact, with the way Ayodele spoke about Saraki, one would think he is a family member, but further investigation revealed that the Primate never met the former President of the Senate and all he was about is God’s mind for the country.
Still before the election, in Bayelsa State, Primate Ayodele predicted victory for PDP’s candidate, Duoye Diri, but unfortunately, the All Progressives Congress won. So many spoke against the prophet and called him names, but shockingly, the PDP and its candidate were declared winner by the court few hours to the inauguration, fulfilling Primate Ayodele’s prophecy.
Furthermore, of recent, Primate Ayodele has made some prophetic comments that has shot him to the post of the most respected, courageous, accurate prophet in Africa.
His prophecy about the outcome of the Edo State election has made his church become a “pilgrimage” ground where individuals, pastors, very important personalities go to for advice, prayers and other spiritual activity.
Ayodele had earlier stated in March that Godwin Obaseki will become the winner of the Edo State gubernatorial election come what may. He noted that he sees him being eased out of the election primaries by his predecessor, Adams Oshiomhole, but at the end, he will be victorious.
This prophecy came when no pastor dare talked about Edo State election because there was no certainty about the outcome. It was a very uncertain situation up till the election day, but Primate Ayodele stood his ground on the prophecy that Obaseki will win and he did.
He had also warned Oshiomhole that if he didn’t desist from fighting Obaseki, he might not see 2023 as the national chairman of the APC. Alas, this happened
Also, he predicted the death of prominent Nigerians long before Senator Bayo Osinowo, Senator Buruji Kashamu, Senator Abiola Ajimobi, Isa Funtua, Abba Kyari, to mention a few died.
When COVID -19 was thriving, Primate Ayodele stated that the President of the United States of America, Donald Trump, will contract the virus, and it came to pass as he said it.
At the moment, his only prophecy that is yet to come to pass is the outcome of Ondo State governorship election. The election will take place on October 10, 2020. According to Primate Ayodele, the incumbent and candidate of APC, Rotimi Akeredolu, will not win the election except he uses power of incumbency, money, manipulation, technicality, coalition and security.
He said: “Rotimi Akeredolu will not win Ondo election except through manipulations and technicality, He must not underrate anybody. The candidate of the PDP, Eyitayo Jegede, and ZLP, Agboola Ajayi, are out to beat him. He needs to be careful because he will be betrayed. There are moles in his camp. The people of Ondo State have rejected Akeredolu. No matter the crowd he has now, they won’t give him victory except he manipulate. He should wake up, strategise and right his wrongs if he wants to win or else. He will lose gallantly except through manipulations.”
Well, it’s just in five days time before we know if this prophecy will further confirm Primate Ayodele as the most accurate Prophet of our time.
