General Overseer of the Inri Evangelical Spiritual Church, Oke-Afa, Lagos, Primate Elijah Ayodele Babatunde has cautioned that the victory of the Senate President Bukola Saraki at the Code of Conduct Tribunal, should not be taken as meaning that Saraki is entirely off the hook of his political persecutors.
The cleric had in July 2015, through several media interviews and in his annual book of prophecies, warned that Saraki would face scandals in form of political persecution.
Back in July 2015, he had said: “Saraki will be enmeshed in some kind of scandal for political reasons,” but also warned, “It will be difficult to remove Saraki.” Again in 2016 he had assured Saraki that he would survive the crisis if he did what the party wanted.
Reacting to Saraki’s victory at the Code of Conduct Tribunal, the cleric said: “There would still be friction between the senators and the presidency. We must also pray against the death of a member of the National Assembly. We should pray that Nigerians would not cry.
“We have been saying since 2015 that corruption will fight back the government of President Mohammadu Buhari. We had also predicted in the yearly book of prophecy that a notorious kidnap kingpin would be arrested. That is contained in the 2016/2017 edition of the Warnings to the Nation.
“The London blaze was also predicted in the same edition of the book of prophecies. The spirit of God had led me to foresee a strange fire that will engulf a London tower, and we had issued the warning that the UK should pray against the incident.
“We had warned Governor Yaya Bello that there would be serious attempt to rubbish his government. Now God is telling the governor to tread softly on the tango between himself and Senator Dino Melaye,” he said.
Primate Ayodele also advised the Federal Government about the quit notice given to Igbo, saying: “The quit notice handed out to our Igbo brothers and sisters in the north is a strong indication that Nigeria is nearing a breaking point. It is only God that can save us from the imminent break-up and even destabilisation.
“I advise that the government should manage the issue very well so we don’t experience critical ethnic crisis again.”
