At the All Progressives Congress, APC, candidate in the elections for the governorate of the state of Anambra just concluded, Andy Uba was invited to apologize to the popular prophet, the primate Elijah Ayodele, after losing the elections.
Uba had engaged in a war of words with Primate Ayodele, spiritual leader of the INRI Evangelical Spiritual Church, prior to the election.
The candidate for governor had insulted the priest who had asked him not to run in the elections.
The primate Ayodele had made it known that Uba does not have God’s support in the elections and any attempt to contest will lead to a mere waste of resources.
Reacting, Uba had described Ayodele as a false prophet, insisting that he would win the election whatever the man of God said.
Uba, in the elections just ended, finished third, while Charles Soludo of the All Progressives Congress, APGA, emerged as the winner, and with Valentine Ozigbo of the Peoples’ Democratic Party, PDP, he finished second.
However, a political analyst, John Okafor, advised Uba to apologize to the primate Ayodele.
In a statement, Okafor said Uba should apologize to “the man of God for dragging his name in the dirt if he is to have a good political exit in the future.”
He explained that “Andy Uba made himself the biblical Korah who rebelled against Moses and was consumed by the fire sent by God.”
Okafor said: “God wanted to save Andy Uba from wasting resources and used the primate Ayodele to deliver the message, but due to his desperation and stubbornness, he did not listen and led to an unfortunate loss for him and the party. .
“Andy Uba should go back to God and apologize to the primate Ayodele for going against his prophetic advice.”
