A leading gubernatorial aspirant under the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Ebonyi State, Hon. Chris Usulor, weekend took a swipe at the leader of the INRI Evangelical Spiritual Church, Primate Elijah Ayodele over alleged wrong prophecy.
Primate Elijah Ayodele was quoted to have allegedly prophesied that Usulor and three (3) other governorship aspirants in Ebonyi would not make it in 2023.
Usulor, a third timer in the Ebonyi State House of and an aspirant who hails from Ebonyi Central senatorial zone ,had declared interest to contest for governorship in the forthcoming 2023 general election.
Chief Chris Usulor tasked the leader of the INRI Evangelical Spiritual Church, Ayodele, to be sure of the names he saw in his prophecy and denied of being among the people he saw.
Usulor said: “Our attention have been drawn to Primate Ayodele’s prophecy. The names of our aspirant is Hon. Chris Usulor and not Uzulor as Primate Ayodele saw in his prophecy.
“When God ministers to his true and chosen prophets, the prophecy is always clear without any ambiguities or confusion and God is not a God of attention seeker.
“True men of God are judged and respected by their past proven prophecy records. Hon. Chris Usulor candidacy is divine as examplified by the number of respected clergymen that are supporting him, coupled with an overwhelming support by the people of Ebonyi state.
“The second commandment states” thou shall not take the name of the Lord in vain” and the 9th commandment says” thou shall not bear false witness against your neghbour”.
“Hon. Chris Usulor is ready and focused to answer the clarion call of Ebonyi people who are aiding him to lead them as their governor come 2023.
“We advice Primate Ayodele not to fall victim of desperate political contenders in the state, that might have offered him money knowing fully well, they don’t stand any chance with Hon.Chris Usulor” the statement noted.
Investigation revealed that the leader of the INRI Evangelical Spiritual Church, Ayodele had in a statement signed by his media aide, Osho Oluwatosin, stated that the politicians mentioned should not waste money on election campaigns because God has not anointed them to lead the state.
According to Ayodele: “some politicians who will not be governors of their states in 2023, despite having ambitions to succeed their governors.
“In Ebonyi state, PDP’s Engr Fidelis Nwakwo, Mr. Chris Uzulor, and APC’s Edward Nkwoagu were listed as politicians who won’t become governor in the state in 2023” the statement noted.
