The camp of the leader of INRI Evangelical spiritual church, Primate Elijah Ayodele has hit back at the presidency, saying it dislikes the truth.
The statement from Ayodele’s camp follows a previous attack by presidential spokesperson, Femi Adesina in an opinion article in which he called out the cleric for making prophecies that were not fulfilled.
Naija News reports Primate Ayodele had among other things prophesied that Nigeria will eventually break up between 2035 and 2040 but in a quick reaction, Adesina in an article titled “Some Prophets See Nothing” told Ayodele to focus on preaching and church welfarism and forget about prophesying.
He recalled about eight times Primate Ayodele’s prophesy failed to come to reality.
Replying to the position of the presidential spokesperson, Dolapo Oladipupo, a media aide to Primate Ayodele in a statement accused the Buhari presidency of disliking those who tell them the truth.
The statement also recalled some major prophecies of the clergyman that has come to pass.
“Apart from being a Christian, Femi Adesina, during his service at Sun Newspapers, had a column called ‘Kulikuli’ where he talks majorly about the unfulfilled prophecies of notable prophets,” Dolapo’s statement read.
“Since he doesn’t manage that column anymore, he uses his Facebook page to dish out his write-ups on prophecies that didn’t come to pass. But it’s now looking more of an attack on every prophet.
“In this post titled ‘The Prophets See Nothing’, he spoke about ‘failed’ prophecies of Primate Ayodele, his prophecy about Nigeria breaking before 2040, and boasted that nothing will happen. He blamed the man of God for giving negative prophecies.
“It is obvious they don’t listen to men of God who speak the truth but prefer pastors who say ‘All Is Well’ when clearly, nothing is well. They have engaged in buying prophets over to the extent of keeping them shut.
“Some who were very vocal in speaking to power don’t do that anymore due to this deliberate action of force or by contracts. Thank goodness some prophets have singled themselves out – Joshua Iginla, Apostle Okikijesu, Prophet Fufeyin, Prophet Odumeje, Primate Elijah Ayodele, Rev. Fr. Mbaka.
“Primate Elijah Ayodele has given prophecies that have come to pass. He prophesied the death of Abba Kyari, Isa Funtua, Aso rock crisis, death of Abubakar Shekau, Nigerian economy situation, COVID-19 in the presidential villa, to mention a few.
“Femi Adesina’s post is just an attempt to downplay the prophetic ministry of Primate Ayodele. The Nigerian government is fast becoming the King of Judah in the old testament that locked up Prophet Jeremiah for prophesying.
“We will leave Femi Adesina with a bible verse from King Solomon. Proverbs 29:18 says “Where there is no prophetic vision the people cast off restraint but blessed is he who keeps the law”, the statement added.
