Primate Elijah Ayodele has in a fresh prophecy warned that the Igbos would be in trouble if Senator Orji Uzor Kalu fails to get the Senate Presidency.
The leader of the INRI Evangelical Spiritual Church, in a statement signed by his media aide, Osho Oluwatosin, on Monday, said should Orji Kalu fail to become the next Senate President, the Igbos would suffer dire consequences.
Primate Ayodele warned that the opposition parties within the Senate could pose a significant challenge to his chances of becoming the Senate President, adding that the opposition would ultimately be hindered by financial disagreements and divisions.
‘’I still maintain that the best candidate for Senate President is Orji Uzor Kalu. If he loses the Igbos will be in trouble.
“The Igbos in the house will make it difficult for him, but to balance the situation, an Igbo person and a Christian is better. A Muslim emerging the next Senate President will lead to crisis, there will be so much rowdy sessions and disagreements in the house,’’ he said.
He also said the best candidate to become the next House of Representatives Speaker is Ahmed Idris Wase, the current Deputy Speaker.
‘’If the opposition parties put themselves together as expected, they will shake the speakership race, but there will be divisions among them because money will separate them.
“Money will make them not come together to produce a good candidate. The proposed coalition among opposition parties in the House of Representatives will not work. The Deputy Speaker, Ahmed Idris Wase is the best candidate. He will stabilize the house,” he concluded.
