The leader of the INRI Evangelical Spiritual Church, Primate Elijah Ayodele, made some interesting revelations on Friday regarding elected governors and their possible replacements by opposition party candidates in some states.
Bellnewsonline.com reports that in a statement signed by his media aide, Osho Oluwatosin, Primate Ayodele highlighted some cases where governors could be sacked by the courts.
He suggested that the PDP candidate in Kaduna, Isah Ashiru, could reclaim his stolen mandate in court and oust Uba Sani of the All Progressives Congress (APC). He also hinted that in Enugu State, the Labour Party (LP) could be declared the rightful winner of the election in court, instead of the PDP candidate, Peter Mbah.
He said: ‘’The governors-elect of Kaduna and Enugu states should not rejoice yet. I don’t see their victory standing for long because the candidates of the PDP and Labour Party respectively can still reclaim their mandate. The court may sack them and give victory to the opposition parties.”
Furthermore, Primate Ayodele warned Governor Dapo Abiodun of Ogun State that his seat is shaking and the PDP could get him sacked if they took the matter seriously.
“PDP has a chance to get him sacked by the court but the party isn’t serious. He urged Dapo Abiodun to strategize well to make it difficult for him to be removed,” he said.
Primate Ayodele also advised the Labour Party’s governorship candidate in Lagos, Gbadebo Rhodes-Vivour, and the Abia State governorship candidate not to pursue any court case as it would be a waste of money.
“In Lagos State, the Labour Party cannot record any success at the tribunal, it will be a mere waste of money. Abia State PDP governorship candidate should not also attempt to approach the court, he will be disgraced,” he said.
Lastly, he gave a warning about the upcoming supplementary elections in Adamawa State, saying that the APC candidate, Aishatu Binani, would not win, but he cautioned the PDP candidate, Ahmadu Fintiri, to be on the alert as he foresaw some manipulations by the APC.
“In Adamawa State, the APC candidate, Aishatu Binani cannot win the governorship election, the PDP candidate, Ahmadu Fintiri will still retain his seat but he has to be on alert because APC will want to try to manipulate the election,” he said.
