Primate Ayodele Releases Fresh Prophecies On Anambra Governorship Election-Crystal News

As the Anambra governorship election gets closer, different publications have been coming up concerning the candidates and the election as a whole. At a time like this, publications that have to do with prophecies on who becomes the winner of the election get lot of attention from candidates and the people of Anambra.

Popular prophet, Primate Elijah Ayodele is one prophet who has spoken consistently about the gubernatorial election in Anambra. He started before the primaries up till this moment and his last prophecy was talking about the candidates and their stand in the soon coming elections.

In this last prophecy, he mentioned that the All Progressive Congress (APC) and the All Progressive Grand Alliance (APGA) are not wanted by the people of Anambra and that they are bent on taking the victory by force.

‘‘’People are tired of APGA, they don’t want APGA but the party wants to enforce power through rigging, they are not getting it right. Governor Willie Obiano isn’t doing his homework properly and it will affect their victory. Nobody is ready for APGA and APC in Anambra but both of them are bent on taking it by force. Except Governor Willie Obiano begs the people of Anambra and prays to God, the people will not vote for APGA.’’

For YPP and PDP, Primate Ayodele stated that both parties have what it takes to win the election and advised them on what to do.

‘’PDP has what it takes, they have the resources but except their candidate, Valentine Ozigbo does the necessary things, he won’t win. A coalition will help PDP more to get their chances. If they do what is right, they will get it. Unless PDP wakes up, gets a coalition and puts their house in proper order, they will not be victorious, they should manage things properly. Three days to the election, things will start changing, PDP should prepare well.

‘’A Coalition will send APC off the race but other parties don’t see beyond their nose and by this, they will create chances for APC to win in an ungodly way. The people don’t want APC and APGA. If PDP can utilize the opportunity, they can win.

‘’YPP candidate, Ifeanyi Ubah is not ready to take victory, victory is surrounding him but he isn’t ready for it. They will ease him out technically, he is getting some things wrong except he does the needful. He has what it takes but he isn’t managing it, he is playing around the victory and people are not seeing him as well prepared for the election victory. The victory is close to him but he doesn’t know how to claim it.’’ (https://dailypost.ng/2021/10/12/anambra-guber-primate-ayodele-reveals-election-outcome-in-fresh-prophecy/)

However, since yesterday, there have been stories flying in the internet that Primate Ayodele prophesied that Ifeanyi Ubah will win the election. This has been posted on mainstream news platforms like the Sun newspapers, and other online platforms.( https://www.sunnewsonline.com/primate-ayodele-says-ifeanyi-ubahll-win/)

Going by the prophetic statement and what is currently spreading, it is important to note that they are two different things and the man of God never stated that Ifeanyi Ubah will win the election.

For Ifeanyi Ubah, Primate Ayodele even noted that the people are not seeing him as a serious candidate and that he doesn’t know how to claim victory. He went ahead to categorically state that he will eased out technically except he does the needful. With this statement, Primate Ayodele never said Ifeanyi Uba will win but advised him on what he needs to do if he wants to win. He wasn’t the only one in this category, the PDP candidate was also advised on what to do to win the election.

Where then did those sponsoring stories to favor Ifeanyi Ubah get theirs from? The facts are available on the social media and there was never a time Primate Ayodele made a statement that YPP and Ifeanyi Ubah will win the election.

However, this is not the first time Primate Ayodele’s prophecies will be twisted by some elements for political gains. In 2018, Primate Ayodele released a statement that only Saraki can unseat Buhari and that can only happen if the PDP gives him the presidential ticket but unfortunately, they didn’t listen and they lost in the election. After this, there were verbal attacks against Primate Ayodele for saying ‘Saraki will be nigeria’s next president’, meanwhile, there was never a time Primate Ayodele said this.

In 2020 before Ondo election, Primate Ayodele said Governor Rotimi Akeredolu will not win by people’s mandate but through manipulation, technicality, power of incumbency, money and security. His words were twisted as saying ‘Rotimi Akeredolu will not win’, whereas that wasn’t what the man of God said.

For Ifeanyi Ubah, it’s obvious his camp are behind the sponsored stories but putting the records straight, Primate Ayodele never said Ifeanyi Ubah will win the election.

Court sacks Accord Party Exco, NWC

Published

By

A High Court of Federal Capital Teritory, Maitama, on Monday has barred the National Chairman of the Accord Party, Hon. Mohammad Lawal Nalado, from further occupying any position in the party.

This was as the court also sacked all the National Executive Members and National Working Committees, who were said to have contested and spent more than two terms in office and so prevented from re-contesting for the same post/office or remain in the same office in acting capacity after the expiration of their term(s).

In a judgment delivered by Hon. Justice O. A. Adeniyi was consequent upon an Originating Summons brought against the National Executive and National Working Committee of the party by Innocent Igboekwe, Prince Joseph James and Jamilu Abass.

Represented by their Attorney, Chief Wakeel Olawale Liady of The Bridge Chambers, the three party members sought a declaration from the court to prevent the national officers of the party not to hold any office in their hierarchy of the party having been sworn-in twice as prescribed by the constitution of the party.

The plaintiff also asked the Court to declare that the tenure of office of Hon. Mohammad Lawal Nalado’s led National Executive Committee and National Working Committee of the party has expired on the 17th of January 2022 having been elected and sworn in on the 18th day of January, 2018.

The declaration stated inter alia: ‘Having regard to the clear and unambiguous provision of section 223 (1) of the 1999 Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria (as amended), Section 85 (3) of the Electoral Act 2010 (as amended) and Articles 19 and 23 of the Constitution of the Accord Party,

‘By the reason of the expiration of Hon. Mohammad Lawal Nalado’s led National Executive Committee and National Working Committee of the ACCORD on the 17th day of January, 2022 there has been a vacuum in the administration and running of the 1st Defendant’s political party.

‘By the reason of the expiration of Hon. Mohammad Lawal Nalado’s led National Executive Committee and National Working Committee of the ACCORD on the 17th day of January, 2022, the 3rd, 4th and 5th Defendants and/or any member of their committee cannot function, act and perform as subsisting members of the National Executive Committee and National Working Committee of the 1st Defendant as from 18th day of January, 2022.

‘The deliberate refusal, failure and negligence of the 3rd, 4th and 5th Defendants to call and hold National Convention and meetings of the National Executive Committee and National Working Committee as required by the law is a gross violation of provisions of the 1st Defendant’s Constitution.

‘The deliberate refusal, failure and negligence of the 3rd, 4th and 5th Defendants to call for the annual auditing of the finance of the ACCORD is an infraction of the provision of 28 (1) of the Constitution of ACCORD.

‘By virtue of provision of section 223 (1) of the 1999 Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria (as amended) and Section 85 (3) of the Electoral Act 2010 (as amended), the 2nd Defendant should oblige that the 1st, 3rd, 4th and 5th Defendants to comply with the extant laws on tenure of office and finance of the ACCORD.’

Granting the plaintiff’s prayers, Justice Adeniyi therefore restrained the Accord Party and the National Independent Electoral Commission (INEC) from allowing the Naldo, Michael Lerama, and Barrister Maxwell Ngbudem alongside other executive and the NEC members, who had contested and held party office for two terms from further contesting and holding office after their second term.

The Court also granted an order in favour of the Plaintiff restraining Accord Party and INEC from according or continuing to accord any recognition to the r any other member of the party, who has served during Hon. Mohammad Lawal Nalado’s led National Executive Members and National Working Committee because their tenure of office had expired on the 17th day of January, 2022.

Justice Adeniyi also directed the Accord Party to hold its National Convention/State Congresses with a view to elect members of the National and State executive Committee with ninety (90) days from the date judgement is delivered in this suit.
