The Sun also reported that Primate Ayodele, urged Nigerians to be watchful and prayerful in the New Year in order to avert looming troubles ahead just as he announced that the first seven days of the year have been set aside for prayers for the nation.
He was quoted as saying, “In the first 160 days in 2022 Nigerians must be very careful and prayerful because of the evil of that period that is why we have set aside the first seven days of the year for prayers to avert the looming dangers ahead. The year 2022 is a year of mixed bag. So as a country we need prayers in order to avert avoidable troubles”.
Primate Ayodele said that contrary to insinuations, the Federal Government has no agenda to kill Sunday Igboho and Nnamdi Kanu, who are currently in detentions, but revealed that the duo might not find it easy as they battle to regain their freedom.
His continued, “Sunday Igboho must calm down. In fact, he needs to change his lawyer. He should look for a new and senior ‘Salami’ to handle his case.
“In addition to that, if Igboho does not handle his matter very well he will stay longer in detention.
“The Nigerian government is so much interested in him. They are not going to kill him, but they are keen on holding him until the end of this administration. So, he must be very prayerful.
“Nnamdi Kanu will not find it so easy as well. He should still expect tough time because the government is not ready to free him for one second. He needs to be very prayerful and watchful this time around. The government does not have any plans to kill either Igboho or Kanu.
“They should put that insinuation aside. Government will employ all sorts of tactics to prolong their days in detention. This year will be a tougher year for IPOB and ESN. There will be confrontations and killing between the nation’s security forces and IPOB and ESN.”
On the nation’s economy, Primate Ayodele said: “Nigerians need to be watchful about the nation’s economy. Our economy is going down. Oil will be discovered in few other places, but it will not impact on the economy.
“Some documents will leak from NNPC and that will put the corporation into troubles. This will create problem for the Minister of Petroleum and the GMD of NNPC.
“The planned removal of fuel subsidy will plunge Nigeria into deeper problem. In addition to the hike in price of PMS, Nigerians must also expect scarcity of the product this year. I am seeing protest which can grind Buhari’s government for some time.”
His revelations for the New Year also captured the nation’s politics and the political actors in the country.
Primate Ayodele continued, “I will like to warn Hope Uzodimma not to waste his time and resources on re-election because he will definitely lose.
“PDP will take over the state at the end of next election. APC will not win Cross Rivers although the incumbent governor, Ben Ayade belongs to APC.
“And if the man aspires to run for presidency or Vice President, his dream will not see the light of the day.
“Tinubu will face a lot of trials and complications. He should drop his presidential ambition for better things because God has not ordained him. If anybody puts him there they will just mess this country up.
“Atiku will not make a better option as the president of Nigeria. If PDP gives it to Atiku, the party should bid the 2023 presidency goodbye.
“Kwankwaso wants to decamp; if he decamps to APC, he will just mess himself up,” he revealed.
Concerning the 2023 elections, Primate Ayodele said, “These are the people God revealed to me as presidential and vice presidential materials if they are lucky to be picked.
“In APC, we have people like Zulum, Mala Buni, Governor of Yobe; Boss Mustapha, Malami, Fashola, Aregbesola, Fayemi and Akpabio.
