December 26, (THEWILL) – The General Overseer of INRI Evangelical Spiritual Church, Primate Elijah Ayodele, has said that Nigeria needs a hardworking and caring president in 2023.
Primate Ayodele, who made this known in a release at the weekend, said the next President after Muhammadu Buhari must
be a good president, who will not be lazy and will look after the well-being of the less privileged.
“Nigeria, in 2023, needs a President that will not be sentimental or be a tribal apologist and will see the
importance in the future of the youths.
“Nigeria must vote for a leader with the fear of God. A leader that is not selfish, who will not promote religious sentiment,” he said.
He said none of the three leading presidential candidates namely Atiku Abubakar of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP); Bola Tinubu of the All Progressives Congress (APC); and Peter Obi of the Labour Party (LP), can bring immediate change that the populace are expecting in 2023.
“I foresee that the change we are clamouring for cannot be immediate. The spirit of God says none of the leading contestants is very good for the job but one would be better than the
others,” he said.
He urged Nigerians to be patient and said that because of the impatience of Nigerians, the incoming government
must exercise patience and make the people understand the problems involved in administering the country.
“There must be a way or system of carrying the people along in political
administration of the country,” he counselled.
Ayodele urged INEC to do the needful to prevent tension.
He also advised the political parties to prepare well saying Permanent Voter Cards (PVC) will determine a lot about who will win the election as rigging will be minimal.
