Primate Elijah Ayodele, the leader of the INRI Evangelical Spiritual Church, issued a warning about the 2023 general elections in Nigeria on Tuesday.
Northerners, according to Primate Ayodele, are not ready to surrender power in 2023, and they will not allow somebody who is not on good terms with them to lead.
In a statement signed by his media aide, Osho Oluwatosin, Primate Ayodele alleged that cabals in the North are planning to destabilize Nigeria because they are determined to hold onto power.
He also berated political parties for not having the best interest of the country in mind.
The clergyman said some of the politicians have declared their intention to become the next president of Nigeria, noting that most of them can’t rule a local government successfully.
He said: “All these political parties are not serious, they just want money, not the interest of the country, they don’t want 2023 to exist. They want to create trouble for 2023 because the Northerners are not ready to leave and anyone who is not in agreement will them will not be allowed to rule.
‘’The Northern cabals want to install anybody who will dance to their tune and these politicians are not mature enough to rule Nigeria. Why is everyone coming out? Those that can’t even rule local government successfully are coming out, they don’t pity this country, they want to inherit Nigeria forgetting they will die one day.’’
