The founder of INRI Evangelical Spiritual Church, Primate Elijah Ayodele has predicted that the likely winner of the forthcoming Ondo State governorship election lies between the incumbent governor Rotimi Akeredolu of All Progressive Congress (APC) and the Zenith Labour Party candidate Agboola Ajayi, the Deputy Governor.
In a statement on Wednesday in Lagos, the renowned prophet revealed that God told him that victory in the election will be between the two candidates.
The election has three major contenders, which include Akeredolu of the APC, Eyitayo Jegede, Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and Agboola Ajayi of the Zenith Labour Party.
Speaking on the candidature of Jegede, Ayodele advised that the PDP candidate should not waste his money because he does not stand a good chance in the election.
“Agboola Ajayi will push more than Eyitayo Jegede in the coming election, Jedege has not taken the right steps. If Agboola Ajayi does the needful, he stands a chance against Rotimi Akeredolu in the election.
“The election victory is between Akeredolu and Ajayi.
“Ajayi is yet to see where he is lacking and Akeredolu will use technicality and manipulation to win the other candidates if they are not careful.
“As I have said earlier, Akeredolu will not get the people’s mandate and he will not win except he uses manipulation, money, power of incumbency, security and technicality.
“The other candidates don’t have these, and they are not working against them yet, they are still making noise. If Agboola Ajayi can work seriously against these things, he still stands a chance.’’
In a related development, Primate Ayodele warned the candidate of the All Progressives Congress, APC, in the last governorship election in Edo State, Ize-Iyamu not to drag the Edo State Governor, Godwin Obaseki to court.
He said, “APC and its candidate, Ize-Iyamu shouldn’t bother to drag Godwin Obaseki to court because they will lose the case.”
