Popular Prophet and General Overseer of INRI evangelical spiritual church, Primate Babatunde Elijah Ayodele has states that the upcoming elections in Edo state will witness Rigging, Killings and all manner of illegalities.
Ayodele, in a recent interview with Sun, disclosed that the candidate of the Peoples Democratic party, PDP and Incumbent governor, Godwin Obaseki will win the elections if it was ‘free and fair’. In his words;
“In Edo State, Oshiomhole has dug his political grave. Oshiomhole has no business fighting Obaseki’s re-election. He could have disciplined the governor in another form. Only manipulation will take Obaseki out of power. If the election is free and fair, Obaseki will come back ten times.”
“So, Obaseki must work hard against manipulation of the election to be able to retain the seat. Ize-Iyamu will not be a stable candidate for Edo State. But if they force Ize-Iyamu to rig the election, he and Oshiomhole will fight dirtier than we are currently witnessing between Oshiomhole and Obaseki. I predicted it in 2016 when Oshiomhole picked Obaseki, I said the two would fight seriously. Now, I am saying that if they rig Ize-Iyamu in, Edo would witness a fierce tug of war between Oshiomhole and Ize-Iyamu.”
“But from all indications, the pendulum is swinging in Obaseki’s direction. Notwithstanding, the election is going to be volatile. There will be rigging, killing and all manners of illegalities to manipulate the exercise.”
