How Fayose's Arrogance Caused Eleka's Defeat - Primate Ayodele
Popular Lagos-based seer, Primate Elijah Babatunde Ayodele, has
revealed that the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) candidate, Prof.
Kolapo Olusola, lost the Ekiti State governorship election due to alleged arrogance and overconfidence of his godfather, Governor Ayo
Ayodele, who is the founder and head of INRI Evangelical Spiritual Church with headquarters in Oke Afa, Isolo, Lagos, said he warned
Fayose about a year ago of an impending defeat but the governor rebuffed his warning.
The cleric, who hails from Ikere-Ekiti the country home of Olusola, disclosed that he
warned Fayose to change some of his alleged negative attributes which
included ingratitude, arrogance and self deception of having prophetic
utterances if he hoped to succeed in installing a successor.
According to him, it was wrong for Fayose to had claimed to be a
prophet by releasing predictions believed to be politically motivated.
He however attributed the loss of Olusola to the All Progressives Congress
(APC) flag bearer, Dr. Kayode Fayemi, as “nemesis catching up with
He said: "We foresaw what eventually happened in Ekiti State more than a year ago. Ekiti is also my state. I am from this town, Ikere Ekiti.
"God had asked me to warn Governor Fayose that he has a great deal of work to do to endear the hearts of Ekiti people to himself and also
take care of certain human traits of his that could give defeat to his anointed candidate, Olusola.
“Olusola is just a victim of the nemesis that eventually caught up with Fayose because instead of the governor to listen to voice of
reason and prophetic utterances we told him, he branded us fake prophet but now he has seen it.”
It will be recalled that Ayodele had predicted that Olusola of the PDP, though deserves to be the next governor of Ekiti State but may not have it because of certain things Fayose needed to do which would only warm the hearts of Ekiti people towards him but also make his enemies not to triumph over him
The prophet specifically revealed that the choice of Fayemi and some other contenders in the May 12 primary of APC would enable the party to clinch victory.
Ayodele had predicted: "On the forthcoming election in Ekiti, PDP will lose. Kayode Fayemi will win if he listens to instructions, one of which is for him to concentrate on winning the hearts of the grassroots, and also watch his utterances that may offend much of Ekiti electorate."
"For Fayose and his party's candidate, Olusola, Fayose must humble himself and work very hard to please Ekiti people, otherwise he would
make his candidate lose.
"The forthcoming election in Ekiti State will be tough. It is only God that can make Fayose and his candidate to win that election. So, Fayemi should work hard, especially more with the grassroots and he
will win if he does what I told him. But if he’s doing elitist politics, he will not win.”
