A leading gubernatorial aspirant on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Ebonyi State, Chief Chris Usulor, on Friday tackled the leader of the INRI Evangelical Spiritual Church, Primate Elijah Ayodele, over an alleged wrong prophecy.
Usulor, a three-time member of Ebonyi State House of Assembly, representing Ezza South State Constituency, have declared interest to contest for the governorship position in the forthcoming 2023 general election.
The aspirant who hails from Ebonyi Central Senatorial Zone, was reacting to a comment credited to Primate Elijah Ayodele, wherein he (Ayodele) was quoted to have allegedly prophesied that Usulor and three other governorship aspirants in Ebonyi would not make it in 2023.
It was gathered 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, “There are 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.”
But reacting to the statement, Usulor who denied being one of those politicians Ayodele saw in his prophecy, queried the Man of God if he was sure of the names he saw in his prophecy.
Usulor, in a statement made available to journalists in Abakaliki, said: “Our attention have been drawn to Primate Ayodele’s prophecy. The names of our candidate is Hon. Chris Usulor and not Uzulor as Primate Ayodele saw in his prophecy.”
The statement further reads: “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’s candidacy is divine as exemplified 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 advise 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.”
