+ Why we’re organizing prayer for the nation
Come Saturday, July 16 2016, founder and spiritual head of INRI Evangelical Spiritual Church, Oke Afa, Ejigbo, Lagos, Primate Babatunde Elijah Ayodele and his friend, Apostle Johnson Suleiman of Omega Fire Ministry from Auchi, Edo State will stage a national prayer summit for President Muhammadu Buhari and Nigeria as a whole. According to the two famous preachers of the Word, the programme will surely turn the nation around.
In this interview with ENCOMIUM Weekly on Sunday, May 15, 2016, in Ikeja, Lagos, the two popular prophets and seers spoke on the purpose of the prayer, other national issues, shocking prophecies and much more…
We learnt you’re planning to start an indoor prophetic and healing ministry soon. What informed this decision?
Yes, INRI Evangelical Spiritual Church has perfected plans to start its outdoor prophetic and healing ministry. It’s going to be an interdenominatio-nal service that will be holding at the Lagos Airport Hotel, Ikeja, Lagos, every Saturday morning. It’s a two-hour programme. We’re looking at September this year for its take off.
It was premised on account of popular demand, especially those who believe we have not been reaching out enough to the people. So, we just have to heed their call.
Do you have any message for the nation as a whole?
Yes, God has revealed to me that Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) is going to split more. There’s going to be another PDP. Also, All Progressives Congress (APC) is going to crack. The remnants of PDP and APC will form a mega party. Some ministers in Buhari’s government will face the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC). But despite the efforts of the EFCC boss, he won’t be appreciated.
Also, the CCT Chairman, Danladi Umar’s efforts won’t be appreciated, no matter what he does. Also, I foresee that the Nigeria-China deal will break midway. I also foresee northern governors ganging up against Buhari. God has also revealed to me that Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) will be reduced to nothing.
The body should also pray very well so that it won’t lose any of its members. APC national convention will break the party if it’s not properly handled. There’s going to be corruption allegation against some APC leaders. Some APC senators have their private agenda and they’re likely to cause crisis in the party.
Is there any revelation concerning the most topical issue at the moment, that’s oil subsidy removal?
Yes, the subsidy removal won’t yield any good result until after one year. And Buhari’s economic policies will not bring the nation any benefit until the third year of his administration.
The removal of Immigration boss has been foretold but he’s going to face EFCC charges. Telecoms industry is going to face serious trouble.
On power supply, that can’t be stable until 2017. And electricity will only be very stable for eight months, after which, there will be ups and downs again in its supply. The Ministry of Interior will be probed. The Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) will be reduced to nothing. And the body should pray very well against losing one of its members.
Not all Buhari’s minister will finish with him. We should pray against the death of an oba in Lagos and an emir in the north. We have said a lot in recent times and they have all come to pass. It was predicted that an unknown club side will lift the premiership cup, and Leicester United won. Also, I have predicted that Liverpool will get to the final of the tournament but won’t win the cup.
In 2015, we warned that the US must pray to avert plane crash. The CNN has reported the crash of B-52 military bomber after take-off from Guam Base, South Hawaii.
Also, it was also said last year that some of the Chibok girls would be found this year. Now, one Amina Ali has been rescued.
We learnt you and Apostle Johnson Suleiman of Omega Fire Ministry are organizing prayers for President Muhammadu Buhari and Nigeria as a whole. What informed the prayer and how did the two of you arrive at that and why Apostle Suleimon and not any other prophet?
I believe there are many prophets in Nigeria today, but there are prophets and there are prophets. Apostle Suleiman is one man I respect so much because he’s a man of integrity. Nobody can keep his mouth shut with anything – dollar, pounds or euro. I have always told people that I can’t lead the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), I saw leadership qualities in Apostle Suleiman.
Even, as I speak to you, I know he doesn’t like it but I only want to tell the whole world that we have found a man who fears God and understands what it takes to lead Christendom in Nigeria. This is a man who takes care of the underprivileged, widows and all that. Their pain is his pain. Apostle Suleiman is one prophet who I share the same vision with. And I must confess, he’s doing more than us.
I am not a member of CAN neither do I belong to the Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria (PFN), but the day Apostle Suleiman enrolls and takes over the mantle of leadership of CAN, I also will join. He’s just the only one among millions who can really lead.
He has been chosen by God to lead Christendom. I must let you know, nobody introduced Apostle Suleiman to me. We met at a programme, and fell in love with each other. Most especially, we share the same vision. I am in Lagos, Ejigbo to be precise. He’s based in Auchi, Edo State. But one thing that baffles me is that our prophesies are always the same.
I always tell people that I don’t have friends. Apostle Suleiman is the only friend I have now. He is my spiritual, physical; and social friend. If you can still recall, he talked about the removal of oil subsidy, the passing away of Chief (Mrs.) HID Awolowo, the death of Ooni Okunade Sijuwade and so many others which I also mentioned.
You said Apostle Suleiman is the right man to lead CAN. Would you say you have spoken God’s mind?
Yes, exactly. I have spoken the mind of God. I am not speaking the mind of Apostle Suleiman because he himself is not ready for the job.
You’ve not spoken on the national prayer programme with Apostle Suleiman. What informed that?
We all know that in this critical state of the nation. Prayer is just the only way out. We’re not doing it to make money. All we are after is for a true change in Nigeria. I must confess, Nigeria needs divine intervention seriously. The programme is coming up on third Saturday or Sunday of July this year, in Auchi, Edo State.
Don’t you think some people will perceive the programme as a way of seeking government or public attention, what’s your comment on that?
No, we’re not doing it to seek the president or anybody’s attention. All we are asking God for is His intervention in Nigeria. We’re not writing any letter to CAN or PFN. We’re just doing what God has laid in our hearts.
