Primate Elijah Ayodele, leader of INRI Evangelical Spiritual Church, has urged Godwin Obaseki, Governor of Edo State to consult properly before settling for an anointed candidate because he foresees disappointment and rejection.
Primate Ayodele revealed that Obaseki’s present anointed candidate will disappoint him and will lead the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, to fail in the election.
In a statement by Ayodele spokesman, Oluwatosin Osho, said fighting with other politicians to give his anointed candidate the ticket will only lead to failure.
‘’Obaseki’s anointed candidate will disappoint him. Fights cannot make PDP win the election, and Obaseki’s tussle will make the party fail.’’
The man of God claimed the governor’s candidate would be knocked out of the way, but he wouldn’t see it now.
He urged the governor to restrategize and consult widely before finally settling for a candidate.
‘’He should consult properly before he concludes on the choice of an anointed candidate for the election. Obaseki needs to re-package and re-strategize his political techniques. His anointed candidate will find it difficult to win the election but he doesn’t see it now. His candidate may be knocked out of the way.’’
Primate Ayodele disclosed that mighty hands are coming to hijack Edo State from the PDP and if loopholes are allowed, the PDP will lose out.
‘’Mighty hands are coming to hijack Edo from PDP and if Obaseki allows loopholes by forcing a candidate on the party, PDP will lose out,’’ he added.
