Renowned spiritual leader, Primate Elijah Ayodele, has unveiled his prophetic insight into the upcoming 2023 presidential election in Nigeria. The Founder and Leader of INRI Evangelical Spiritual Church predicts a possible rerun of the election, but warns of powerful forces committed to preserving the existing election results.
Speaking through his Media Aide, Oluwatosin Osho, Primate Ayodele asserts that there are flaws in the judiciary system that have yet to be effectively addressed. These weaknesses, if left unrectified, may harm the reputation of the All Progressives Congress (APC), the ruling party.
“The APC recognizes that there is no alternative to the election tribunal and is closely monitoring proceedings to ensure a favorable outcome,” Ayodele states.
He further suggests that the ideal course of action for the tribunal, should it wish to embrace fairness, would be to call for a rerun. However, influential actors behind the scenes are determined to maintain the current election results.
Ayodele elaborates, “The prevailing trend I foresee is a rerun of the election, but the forces exerting influence over it will strive to keep it as it stands.”
In his view, this disregard for genuine judicial procedures risks undermining the integrity of the judiciary and the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC). Ayodele warns that failing to pursue the correct course of action will have significant consequences for these institutions in the long run.
“The tribunal has the opportunity to restore hope and correct any missteps made by the judiciary. Unfortunately, the forces manipulating this situation will vehemently oppose any right actions,” he laments.
Emphasizing the judicial system’s duty to instill hope in Nigerians through fair judgments, Ayodele highlights the Herculean battle that awaits the pursuit of justice.
He goes on to express concerns that an unjust judgment will render both the judiciary and INEC irrelevant.
“As Nigerians eagerly await the tribunal’s verdict, it is apparent that there are vulnerabilities that exist within the system, as revealed by divine intervention. These loopholes, which have not been adequately addressed, may expose the ruling party,” Ayodele reveals.
He adds that the ruling party, acknowledging that there is no alternative, has installed influential figures to oversee the tribunal outcomes.
These stakeholders, according to Ayodele, are growing increasingly desperate to preserve the status quo. Their presence raises legitimate concerns about the impartiality and transparency of the electoral process.
While the battle for a fair judgment intensifies, it remains to be seen whether the reformation of the judiciary and INEC will take place, or if powerful forces will continue to deter progress.
Primate Ayodele’s prediction sheds light on the challenges faced by Nigeria’s democratic institutions, underscoring the need for transparency, fairness, and integrity in the electoral system. As citizens anticipate the tribunal’s decision, the sincerity of the process will determine the future course of Nigerian democracy.
