The prophecy made by the leader at INRI Evangelical Spiritual Church, Primate Elijah Ayodele, regarding the victory of Governor Godwin Obaseki in the just concluded Edo State governorship election, has come to pass.
Primate Ayodele, months ago, had said that Governor Obaseki will emerge victorious for another term despite the fact that he had decamped to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) from the All Progressives Congress (APC).
“Without mincing words, this is what the Lord said. Obaseki should be focused, do the needful. Obaseki will win, not Ize Iyamu, excepts APC rigs and anyone who rigs will die, just as I said Covid-19 will kill those who corrupted Nigeria.
Obaseki shouldn’t be afraid of people leaving him, He just needs to stay focused.
Edo election is more than what anyone can stop, Edo election is for PDP, God wants to fight for Obaseki. I have never met him or collected kobo from him, if I have, let him come out and disgrace me, I am talking as a prophet,’’ Ayodele said in the message.
The servant of God added that “people are supporting Obaseki but those people might not vote. He needs to be rugged or else he will be eased out. If he takes any simplicity method, he will lose out.
There will be manipulations in the election. If he isn’t careful, his victory will be given to someone else. Even if he appeals the case, he won’t be given. He must not allow manipulations in the election, if he loses, he will be forever irrelevant in politics.
They have already prepared the manipulation processes to ease him out, he shouldn’t be carried away by the crowd he sees at the moment. He needs to work against the manipulation technically and go into battle against APC and Ize Iyamu.
If he wins, he will become a hero and send away godfatherism in Nigeria. He needs to listen to advice, either the one he feels is useful or not. Ize-Iyamu cannot win Edo election, except through serious manipulation.”
According to the election results declared by INEC, Obaseki won 13 local governments in Edo, leaving Ize-Iyamu with just five. Obaseki polled a total of 307,955 votes while Ize-Iyamu polled 223,619 votes.
My advice to Obaseki is that he should restrategize, involve God in it, intensify in prayers because Oshiomhole will use all avenues to get him out. He must use all means to win or else he will be eased out. He should make wide consultations with his group and God.’’
The cleric had earlier warned Adams Oshiomhole against fighting Godwin Obaseki saying he might not see 2023 as the national chairman of the All Progressives Congress if he did.
‘’If Ize Iyamu wins, Edo State will be worse than it is presently. He is not ordained to be governor but wants to be forced on the people of Edo State. If they mistakenly put Ize Iyamu in power, something terrible will come around. If Oshiomhole isn’t careful, he will not see 2023 as the national chairman of APC.
Adams Oshiomhole should stop fighting God’s project. He is fighting unnecessarily, he can’t win this battle,’’ Ayodele had declared.
