We’re still going to witness more drama at the tribunals, They’ll still unseat senators says Primate Ayodele



Primate Elijah Ayodele, the leader of the INRI Evangelical Spiritual Church, has offered his perspective on the recent judgment of the Presidential Election Petition Tribunal held in Abuja.

As reported by the Independent National Electoral Commission, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, the former Governor of Lagos State and National Leader of the All Progressives Congress, secured victory over strong contenders, including Peter Obi of the Labour Party, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar of the Peoples Democratic Party, and Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso of the New Nigeria Peoples Party, NNPP, to claim the country’s highest political office.

Following this election, both Peter Obi and Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, the presidential candidates of the Labour Party and the Peoples Democratic Party, respectively, challenged Bola Ahmed Tinubu’s victory at the Presidential Election Tribunal in Abuja. However, the court dismissed their petitions last Wednesday. Peter Obi, a former Governor of Anambra State, has expressed his intent to take the case to the Supreme Court.

Primate Elijah Babatunde Ayodele, as reported by The Sun paper, shared his perspective, stating, “We are still going to witness more drama at the tribunals. Tribunals will still unseat more Senators. More House of Representatives members will still go. In fact, some governors are at risk of losing out at the tribunals.”

He continued, emphasizing the waning confidence of Nigerians in the electoral system, saying, “Nigerians’ confidence in the electoral system is waning. After the Supreme Court’s judgment, the confidence level will depreciate further because the power behind Emilokan will cover whatever loophole is in the last election. It is not Tinubu that is at work; it is the spirit behind Emilokan that is at work, and it has already defeated Obi and Atiku.”
