Primate Ayodele Elijah Babatunde, Leader of the Inri Evangelical Spiritual Church has given21 days ultimatum to the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar and his running mate, Mr Peter Obi to do three things in 21 days if they are determined to win the presidential poll.
He said if those things aren’t neglected, President Mohammadu Buhari’s reelection would simply be a walk over .
The three steps according to the cleric are fortifying the party with Senate President Bukola Saraki becoming a major factor in the process, work on other germane techniques in winning and becoming seriously spiritual, as
“The All Progressive Congress is very very spiritual and demands a superior match to upstage”, he said.
His words: ” Atiku and Obi have bright chances but they have 21 ultimatum from Friday, January 3 to determine if they would win or not, otherwise Buhari will return.
They must do three things: they must fortify the party , work assiduously on other technicalities on how to win.”
Primate Ayodele however warns that: “If Buhari wins a second time he may not have the energy to handle governance as his health will still affect his performance. The President need a lot of prayers for his health.”
Speaking further on the gubernatorial polls, he said: “APC is very spiritual, the PDP should note this and work on it. APC will take Kaduna, Kano, Gombe Jigawa, and Nasarawa, but they won’t take Niger and Adamawa.
“The poll in Oyo, will be between ADC and PDP.
Governor Amosun should not underestimate Dapo Abiodun as he will shake the state. Dapo Abiodun should also beware of the candidate of Amosun. Akpabio is so desirous to win Akwa Ibom for the presidency. PDP should note this and work more.
Governor Wike would not have it easy to win a second time. He should note this. Two governors will betray Atiku in his ambition. Emmanuel Udom must also strategize if he wants to win. If APC is not very careful, they will lose Zamfara . polls will not hold in all states,
” Jigawa, Gombe Adamawa, Ogun, Ekiti, Ondo, Akwa Ibom, and Rivers will be war zones in the coming polls. Governor Akeredolu should be prayerful so he won’t face daunting challenges. He must work so well on the court case. Not all the governors will complete their time.”
Advising the presidency on the issue of insecurity, he said: “The President must tackle the challenge of armed bandits very well, it should not overlook it. The IGP will go this year. The INEC will be taken to court in election results. If APC wins, Buhari will be the party’s last President. There will be serious crisis between Oshiomole and Buhari’s loyalists. Oshiomole will have problems after the presidential polls.
” In 2023, the presidency won’t go to the Southwest, it shall be between the North and South East but the Southeast must be smarter than everybody. Let us pray against wind and thunder disaster.
He gave further predictions, saying: “Let us pray against the death of any sitting president in the world, and plane crashes that will involve eminent personalities. There will be turbulent in the aviation sector but Nigeria plane will escape crash.
” There will still be more job losses this year especially among some new generation banks. Political parties will clash seriously, they will stone one another and even kill.
Kidnapping, and other vices will be rampant.
There will be ethnical classes in the South South. There will be indictment against Atiku and also Buhari.
” Let us pray against accidents during the campaign across the nation.
APC must work very hard in Edo unless , PDP will upstage the party. PDP will win in Kwara. Governor El Rufai would have it very hard to have a second time, ” he said
