Primate Elijah Ayodele, the leader of the INRI Evangelical Spiritual Church, released some prophecies concerning Governor Dave Umahi and his Cross River State counterpart, Ben Ayade, ahead of the 2023 general election on Sunday.
Umahi’s bid to become president or vice president, according to Primate Ayodele, would not succeed.
Oluwatoyin Osho, Umahi’s media aide, warned the clergyman’s political ambitions would be threatened in a statement.
He revealed that most of his loyal associates will disappoint him as his governorship draws to a close.
If the governor wants to stay relevant in politics, Primate Ayodele recommended him to return to the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.
If the governor does not return to the PDP, the cleric claims, he will fall into “political oblivion.”
He said: ‘’The mission of Ebonyi Governor, Dave Umahi to become the president or vice president will not see the light of the day, he will be jeopardized politically and his party will not win his state in 2023.
‘’Towards the end of the expiration of his tenure, most of his trusted aides and political allies will disappoint him. If he wants to stay relevant, he should return to his former party or go oblivion in the state. APC cannot win Ebonyi in 2023.’’
The INRI spiritual leader also warned that Ayade will face disappointment and will be left to regret decamping to the All Progressives Congress, APC, because his efforts will not be appreciated
‘’The Governor of Cross River State, Ben Ayade will be disappointed. Especially in 2023, his followers will kick against his instructions. His mission for 2023 pushed him to decamping to the ruling party will not be achieved,’’ he added.
