The head of the INRI Evangelical Spiritual Church, Primate Elijah Ayodele, declared that Peter Obi, the 2023 presidential candidate of the Labour Party, will never be able to hold the office again.

Oluwatosin Osho, his media assistant, released a statement in which he asserted that the Igbo people are incapable of producing Nigeria’s next president.

The priest claimed that Obi lost his chance to lead Nigeria in 2023 and 2027 because he did not act appropriately when it came to those opportunities.


Ayodele went on to say that because the judges will find against him, his lawsuit before the Supreme Court will be dismissed. He continued by saying that people who back the previous governor of the state of Anambra are spiritually deaf.

The Primate asserts that President Tinubu is superior to Peter in terms of spiritual strength.

According to the statement, Peter Obi’s appeal before the Supreme Court is hopeless; he would not be able to win and will not be able to become president of Nigeria.

“His case will be thrown out. Obi would have won the election, but he didn’t do the right thing at the appropriate time.

“This is just medicine after death, a waste of money and resources. The people pushing Obi are spiritually blindfolded.

“The person that is on the presidential seat is more powerful than Obi spiritually. Even in 2027, no Igbo will become president; Obi has missed it”.
