Primate Elijah Ayodele, the leader of INRI Evangelical Spiritual Church, has prophesied that there would likely be a rerun of the 2023 presidential election, but forces behind the election results will stand firmly against it.
The cleric disclosed this in a statement signed Tuesday by his media aide, Osho Oluwatosin.
Ayodele said there are leakages in the judiciary which are not well packaged and will later expose the ruling party.
‘’As Nigerians await the tribunal judgment, there is no way to it, there are leakages in the tribunal as revealed by the Lord. The leakages are not well packaged and will expose the ruling party,” he said.
“The ruling party has also realised there are no two ways to it. There are cabals monitoring this tribunal and they are very desperate,’’ he disclosed.
He noted that if the election tribunal wants to be fair, the best is to call for a rerun but forces behind the case will do anything to ensure the election remains the as it is.
The cleric said that the judiciary is supposed to raise the hope of Nigerians with a fair judgment but forces will seriously fight against the right judgment.
He, however, mentioned that an unfair judgment will make the judiciary and the independent national electoral commission (INEC) to be irrelevant.
‘’If the tribunal wants to be fair, the best is to call for a rerun but forces behind the case will want the election result to remain as it is. The point is the direction of what I see is a rerun of the election but the forces behind the election will want it to remain the same.
‘’This will knock the judiciary and make them to be irrelevant. It will make INEC not to be a body Nigeria can rely on. Of course, Judiciary will pay for it if it doesn’t go for it and INEC will pay for it in the future.
‘’What I see is a rerun but the power behind it will try to make it remain as it is. The tribunal is supposed to raise the hope of Nigeria and correct all the misconduct of the judiciary but the forces behind it will fight against the right thing,’’ he added.
