The leader of INRI Evangelical Spiritual Church, Primate Elijah Ayodele has been verbally attacked by former lawmaker, Shehu Sani over his 2021 Africa Cup of Nations prophecy declaration against Super Eagles.
Naija News understands that Ayodele had predicted in his December prophecy that the nation’s National Football Team, Super Eagles will not win the 2021 AFCON.
According to him, the Super Eagles would be sent out of the tournament technically.
The AFCON games is scheduled to kick off in Cameroon on January 9, 2022. The tournament was postponed earlier due to the effect of the Coronavirus pandemic across the world.
Reacting, however, to Primate Ayodele’s declaration ahead of the games, Sani who represented Kaduna Central in the National Assembly during the 8th senate said in a tweet on Monday that the cleric had only predicted that Nigeria would not win, but failed to state who the winners would be.
“My Brother Primate Ayodele prophesied that Super Eagles will not win AFCON but refused to prophesy which country will win,” Shehu Sani tweeted.
Naija News understands that Primate Ayodele had once stated that his prediction regarding the sack of the Super Eagles coach, Gernot Rohr, came to pass.
“Before the removal of the Super Eagles coach (Gernot Rohr), I said it since July and now that they are going for the Nations Cup, Nigeria cannot win,” the renowned cleric said.
“They cannot lift the cup, they will only try their best but they can’t succeed because they will be eased out technically.”
Ayodele also mentioned that the Super Eagles would qualify for the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar but failed to state how far they would go.
