The General Overseer of Inri Evangelical Church, Primate Babatunde Ayodele, has reiterated his call for the Senate President, Bukola Saraki to run for President in 2019.
The Primate had earlier warned Saraki not to neglect God’s order to him to contest for the Presidential election in the year 2019. He said there will be consequences if he doesn’t because he has been destined to win the election.
“God has given him a revelation that Saraki will become Nigeria’s next President.”
He said Saraki will put Nigeria on the path of progress should he contest the presidential election in 2019.
The clergyman spoke during the commissioning of a newly built 50,000 seat Temilaseyori mini-cathedral branch of the Inri Church in Badagry, Lagos State.
He also warned President Muhammadu Buhari to step down and renounce his decision to seek re-election.
According to Ayodele:
“Saraki should come out to contest. It is the word of God. Buhari Government is not in the hand of God any longer; his government cannot meet up the needs of the people, not even the problem of herdsmen in the country which his government cannot control.
“He should step down so that he will not be disgraced like the former. Saraki will do it better and no matter what names people might be calling him, Saraki can move Nigeria forward come 2019.
“In 2013 we told Jonathan that he cannot win, and we repeated it in 2014, but he refused and lost out. During the Liberia presidential election, I told George Weah that he should strategize to win.
“He did and won. We sent similar message to Uhuru Kenyatta of Kenya and he won. I said it also to Sierra Leonean presidential aspirant, Umara Samara, he ignored my message which I sent through delegates. He refused the steps I asked him to follow and after the election, the reverse was the case.”
Ayodele had recently said there would be dire consequences if Saraki refuses to contest for presidency in 2019.
