The General Overseer of Inri Evangelical Church, Primate Babatunde Ayodele, has told President Muhammadu Buhari to step down from office if he does not want to be disgraced like his predecessor, Goodluck Jonathan.
The cleric also reiterated his call for the Senate President, Bukola Saraki to run for President in 2019.
The clergyman said this during the commissioning of a newly built 50,000 seat Temilaseyori mini-cathedral branch of the Inri Church in Badagry, Lagos State.
He said, “Saraki should come out to contest. It is the word of God. Buhari Government is not in the hand of God any longer; his government cannot meet up the needs of the people, not even the problem of herdsmen in the country, which his government cannot control.
“He should step down so that he will not be disgraced like the former President. Saraki will do it better and no matter what names people might be calling him, Saraki can move Nigeria forward come 2019.
“In 2013 we told Jonathan that he cannot win, and we repeated it in 2014, but he refused and lost out. During the Liberia presidential election, I told George Weah that he should strategize to win.
“He did and won. We sent a similar message to Uhuru Kenyatta of Kenya and he won. I said it also to Sierra Leonean presidential aspirant, Umara Samara, he ignored my message which I sent through delegates. He refused the steps I asked him to follow and after the election, the reverse was the case.”
President Muhammadu Buhari on Monday, April 9, told the National Executive Committee (NEC) of the All Progressives Congress (APC) that he will be seeking the party nomination to fly the party flag in the 2019 presidential election.
