Primate Ayodele has warned Igbo leaders against allowing this chance to slip, saying if they do, “they will not see it till the kingdom comes.”
It’s now or never says the Leader of INRI Evangelical Spiritual Church, Primate Elijah Ayodele, on the demand by the Igbo to produce Nigeria’s next president.
Primate Ayodele, in a statement, signed by his Media Aide, Osho Oluwatosin, said the peace of Nigeria is hinged on the Igbo producing the next president.
Primate Ayodele counseled Igbo leaders against betraying each other in their demand for the presidency of Nigeria.
He urged aspirants in the South and North to step down for the Igbo in both political parties in the spirit of fairness and nation-building.
“Sincerely, without mincing words, the next president should come from Igbo; it’s just unfortunate that they are not that serious with their intentions because there is a political force struggling with it which they need to claim otherwise if it eludes them now, Igbo will never see presidency till kingdom comes.
“Igbo must wake up now; otherwise, they will betray themselves from producing the next president of Nigeria. The South and North should step down for Igbo, let them be used as consensus candidates. This can happen if the Igbo know what they want but do they really know what they want? Are they ready for it? I don’t think so
“Either they will perform or not, without any misconception, it is Igbo’s turn, but if they fail it, their present leaders will be cursed by their great-grandchildren.”
Primate Ayodele warned Igbo politicians not to allow cabals to choose Nigeria’s next president by uniting beyond party differences so they can produce a presidential candidate.
“Don’t allow the cabals to choose for Nigeria; let them resist the cabal; Igbo should be the next president. It has gone round, their clamour must be taken seriously, and they must unite now to produce the next president; otherwise, their great-grandchildren will curse them.
“If Nigeria wants peace, that’s how it’s supposed to be. Igbo deserve to produce the next president of Nigeria, but who is ready among them? If we want Nigeria to move forward, let us arrange it properly, they deserve the presidency.”
