The leader of INRI Evangelical Spiritual Church, Primate Elijah Ayodele has revealed that Governor Douye Diri of Bayelsa State will retain his seat in the forthcoming governorship elections.
This was as Ayodele said a strong opposition will unseat the Imo State Governor, Hope Uzodinma.
In a statement by his Media Aide, Osho Oluwatosin, Ayodele advised Diri to make reconciliatory moves with aggrieved parties in the state because he foresees a kind of technicality being used against him even though he would win the election.
He explained that the APC in the state will swim in a deep crisis and it will affect the chances of the party’s candidate.
The clergyman warned Diri to be more focused and continue doing projects that will make the people smile.
Prophet Ayodele said, ‘’The governor of Bayelsa State, Douye Diri will retain his seat but he needs to make reconciliation moves before the election with aggrieved parties.
“He must stay on alert and put his house in order. He must continue doing projects that will make people smile.
“Diri should be more focused than ever because they want to do a kind of technicality against him. The PDP should extend reconciliation move to other parties and there will be a crisis in Bayelsa APC and this will make way for the PDP.’’
For Imo State, Primate Ayodele warned the opposition against going into the election individually.
He made it known that only a strong coalition can unseat Uzodinma because he has all he needs to win the election.
Ayodele advised oppositions to come together to unseat him because the people of Imo State do not want him anymore.
‘’If anyone wants to win Hope Uzodinma in Imo State, there must be a coalition. As individuals, no opposition will be able to defeat the governor so they need to form a coalition if they are truly serious about defeating the governor.
“A strong coalition will unseat him but if the oppositions go into the election for their selfish interests, they will lose.
“The people of Imo don’t want him again but he has all he needs to win the election, only a strong coalition will stop him. Your selfishness will not give you victory.’’
