The Leader Of INRI Evangelical Spiritual Church, Primate Elijah Ayodele, has warned former president, Goodluck Jonathan against running for the presidency for a second time.
In the “prophetic warning” issued on Friday, Ayodele disclosed that Jonathan is ready to dump the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, for the All Progressives Congress, APC.
APC is the ruling party on whose platform President Muhammadu Buhari got to power by defeating Jonathan in the 2015 election and got re-elected in 2019.
In a statement by his media aide, Osho Oluwatosin, Ayodele said unless God changes Jonathan’s mind, he would defect to APC.
The clergyman, however, warned that God has not sent Jonathan on an errand to become the President of Nigeria a second time advising that he should not dabble into it.
He stated that Jonathan has been vindicated of many things since he left power which made him have a ‘white garment’ but any mistake in his moves will get him 'stained'.
He warned that those pushing him to make these political moves are the ones that will fry him.
Primate Ayodele further advised Jonathan to be the father of the nation rather than dragging his good name in the mud.
He said: ‘’Except God changes Goodluck Jonathan’s mind, he is ready to dump PDP for APC ahead of 2023 but he won’t be able to put anything in order. He should consult well before he dabbles into what he wants to dabble in, he has a good name now and his garment is white but with his plans, he wants to stain himself.
‘’God didn’t send him on an errand to come back to contest for another presidential term in Nigeria. People have been praying for him, let him be careful so it won’t become a situation where they send curses to him.
‘’People that are pushing him will fry him, he should stay away and be the father of the nation, he should not cross to APC because it’s going to stain him. It’s not about the party or administration but that’s what God is saying about his moves.’’
