That Governor Godwin Obaseki of Edo State has been declared the winner of the state governorship election by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) is an established fact.
Be that as it may, popular seer and leader of INRI Evangelical Spiritual Church, Primate Elijah Ayodele had before now prophesied on the outcome of the Edo State governorship election.
Primate Ayodele months ago disclosed that Governor Obaseki will emerge the governor.
He said; “Without mincing words, this is what the lord said, Obaseki should be focused, do all the needful things, Obaseki will win, not Ize-Iyamu , excepts APC rigs and anyone who rigs will die, just as I said Covid-19 will kill those who corrupted Nigeria.”
“Obaseki shouldn’t be afraid of people leaving him, He just needs to stay focused.”
“Edo election is more than what anyone can stop, Edo election is for PDP, God wants to fight for Obaseki, I have never met him or collected any kobo from him, if I have, let him come out and disgrace me, I am talking as a Prophet.”
It would be recalled that few weeks to the election, Primate Ayodele released a last warning ahead of the Edo election and categorically asked Obaseki to work against any form of manipulation in the election, in order for him to remain victorious
He said; “People are supporting Obaseki but those people might not vote, He needs to be rugged else he will be eased out, if he takes any simplicity method, He will lose out.”
“There will be manipulations in the election, if he isn’t careful, his victory will be given to someone else, even if he appeals the case, he won’t be given, he must not allow manipulations in the election, if he loses, He will be forever irrelevant in politics.”
“They have already prepared the manipulation process to ease him out, he shouldn’t be carried away by the crowd he sees at the moment, He needs to work against the manipulation technically and pack his arsenal together to battle against APC and Ize-Iyamu.”
“If he wins, he will become a hero and send away godfatherism in Nigeria. He needs to listen to advice, either the one he fees is useful or not, Ize-Iyamu cannot win Edo election, except through serious manipulation.”
However, according to the election results declared by INEC, Obaseki won 13 local governments in Edo, leaving Ize-Iyamu with just five. Obaseki polled a total of 307,955 votes while Ize-Iyamu polled 223,619 votes
