The Presidency has tackled Primate Elijah Ayodele of INRI Evangelical Spiritual Church among other Nigerian Prophets who are fond of declaring negative Prophesies about the country.
In a post on Facebook, the Special Assistant to President Muhammadu Buhari on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, noted that some prophets see nothing.
Adesina, who stated that he believes in prophecies and prophets, said they expose themselves to ridicule when they play to the gallery by claiming that God has said when God has said nothing.
The Presidential aide referred to how a Ghanian Prophet prophesied the Euro 2020 final in London and how the game ended in favour of Italy against his Prophesy that England will win the match.
Adesina said the Ghanian Prophet exposed a high calling to odium and opprobrium by speaking supposedly in the name of the Lord when he saw or heard nothing.
He further recalled that a newspaper published a report about how Primate Elijah Ayodele prophesied that Nigeria would disintegrate between 2035 and 2040.
Adesina wondered why many of his Prophesy is always negative. He added that Prophecies are for comfort, improvement, preservation and not something to cause panic.
The Presidential aide, who opined that though Primate Ayodele does great things regarding welfare for his flock, seems to have issues with his Prophesy.
He recalled how Primate Ayodele said Goodluck Jonathan would win the 2015 Presidential elections but later lost.
Adesina said Primate Ayodele prophesied that Boko Haram would bomb South West; he said Buhari wouldn’t do the second term, among many other Prophesies that never see the light of the day.
According to Adesina, Nigeria will survive beyond 2035 and 2040 as long as people continue to call on the living God. However, he advised Primate Ayodele to focus on touching lives through preaching the gospel.
