Primate Elijah Babatunde Ayodele has urged President Muhammadu Buhari to seek the face of God to be able to surmount the challenges faced by his administration. He also warned Kaduna State Governor Nasir el-Rufai and his Sokoto counterpart Aminu Tambuwal to be careful about 2019.
“Buhari should seek the face the of God for him to run his government successfully because there are challenges ahead for him and his second term will be faced with a lot of challenges,” Ayodele told Vanguard in an interview. “That is why I have to warn (Abubakar) Atiku that he must take precautions and seek the face of God before he takes any (political) step, otherwise, he will be rubbished.
“Also, Tambuwal and el-Rufai should seek the face of God before doing anything pertaining to 2019. There are a lot of things that will happen ahead of 2019 but national unity must not be taken for granted.
“The unity of Nigeria is paramount at this time because issues will come up. Our leaders fail to listen because they are deceived by many pastors. I smile when some people (pastors) talk about an issue which happens when there are already signs that that issue would come up. Go and check our records, past and present, we give warnings two, three, four years ahead.”
Ayodele also said that “Some people want to trouble Buhari’s government and he has to be steadfast on the issue of the economy.
“There is going to be more retrenchment this year and so, Buhari needs to take a very bold step and, again, he needs divine intervention to get things right. APC needs to seek divine intervention and take caution because elements that will crack the party have infiltrated it. Journalists too need prayers.”
“I told you about the Nollywood artistes which is what is happening now. Senators need prayers and the Senate President must not ignore my warnings. He needs to seek the face of God because enemies are running after his bright ambition,” Primate Ayodele said.
He urged Nigerians to pray for President Muhammadu Buhari, stressing that he has a genuine mission. Although he admitted that ex-president Goodluck Jonathan also had genuine mission but he didn’t prepare for presidency.
