Primate Elijah Ayodele, the Leader of INRI Evangelical Spiritual Church has said God is using President Muhammadu Buhari to deal with Nigerians.
Primate Elijah said God was using Buhari to deal with Nigerians for refusing to call and look up to him.
Speaking with DAILY POST, the clergyman likened the case of Nigeria to that of COVID-19, which has made most people of the world turn back to God.
According to Ayodele: “We are clamouring for change because we are tired; in the Bible, God used Saul to teach them a lesson of their lives. So God has used Buhari to teach Nigerians that whenever you desist from calling ‘my name, this is what will happen.’
“Like the issue of COVID-19, the virus was a mysterious disease that dealt with world leaders who have refused to humble themselves before God; that is what we are seeing. COVID-19 has made everybody humble before God. Nigeria needs to humble before God because God has not started anything yet. If you now take it the wrong way, then you will see what will happen.”
The INRI spiritual leader also dismissed claims of the president administration using insecurity as a ploy to Islamize Nigeria.
The clergyman maintained that God told him that nobody could Islamize Nigeria.
“Nobody can Islamize Nigeria, mark my words; anyone saying that is just using it to score political goals; that’s far from it. God has said Nigeria cannot be Islamized,” he added.
It is earlier reported that Nobel Laureate, Prof. Wole Soyinka has said President Muhammadu Buhari’s government cannot unite Nigeria due to its systemic failure.
Soyinka stated this at the book reading and signing of two of his books titled ‘Trumpism in Academe’ and ‘Chronicles of the Happiest People on Earth’ in Abuja on Saturday.
He was responding to former Imo State Governor, Rochas Okorocha, who asked if he could write a story that would inspire unity among the various tribes in the country.
In response, Soyinka claimed Nigeria had lost a key opportunity to unite.
