The Presidency has blasted Nigerian prophet, Primate Ayodele of Inri Evangelical Spiritual Church, for declaring that Nigeria’s corporate existence would not survive till 2040.
You could recall Ayodele recently revealed that the word ‘State of emergency’ keeps ringing in his head and the Federal government and the people in authority should take drastic steps to avoid the situation.
He said: ‘’I keep hearing state of emergency in Nigeria, the government should avoid this at all cost, anything can come up any moment from now if we do not handle the situation well, if the governors don’t do what is right, I foresee state of emergency being declared in some parts of the country. It will call for the intervention of the international community. Nigeria also risks being sanctioned towards the election period.
‘’Some states like Plateau, Benue, Rivers, Imo, Borno, Bauchi, will experience it, it won’t be good for the nation, the government has bad advisers that are controlling the country. The government will make lots of mistakes that will attract the international community, the country needs help so that it will not collapse midway.
‘’There will be a state of emergency declared in the economy, education and security if the government does not adjust quickly. Also, I foresee Nigeria being sanctioned by the international communities.’’
Special Adviser to President Muhammadu Buhari on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, has faced the prophet squarely as he asked Ayodele to focus on touching lives through preaching the gospel, and empowering of many people and avoid meddling in the affairs of the federal governement.
The statement reads, “What am I saying? Don’t nations break? Where is the old Soviet Union, Yugoslavia, Czechoslovakia, and many others? Yes, those countries broke into splinters, but as for Nigeria, it would survive.
“Beyond 2035 and 2040, whether we are still here or not. And as long as patriots continue to lead the country. But for Primate Ayodele, let him focus on touching lives through preaching the gospel, and empowering of many people. It has great gains now and in eternity”.
