Primate Elijah Ayodele, the leader of INRI Evangelical Spiritual Church, has expressed that Ahmed Wase is the most suitable candidate for the position of the next Speaker of the House of Representatives, All Nigeria Latest News reports.
In a statement signed by his media aide, Osho Oluwatosin, Primate Ayodele predicts that although opposition parties in the house may mount a strong challenge in the race, they will face division due to financial considerations.
Primate Ayodele stated that the coalition between them will not work.
Primate Ayodele emphasized that the most suitable candidate for the next House of Representatives Speaker is Ahmed Wase, the incumbent Deputy Speaker.
‘’If the opposition parties put themselves together as expected, they will shake the speakership race but there will be division among them because money will separate them. Money will make them not come together to produce a good candidate. The proposed coalition among opposition parties in the House of Representatives will not work. The deputy speaker, Ahmed Idris Wase is the best Candidate. He will stabilize the house.’’
The cleric further reiterated his prophetic revelation on the senate presidency.
Primate Ayodele explained that Orji Uzor Kalu is the best candidate because an Igbo person who is also a Christian will balance the political situation.
‘’I still maintain that the best candidate for senate president is Orji Uzor Kalu. If he loses it Igbo will be in trouble. The Igbos in the house will make it difficult for him but to balance the situation, an Igbo person and a Christian is better. A Muslim emerging as the next senate president will lead to crisis, there will be so much rowdy session and disagreement in the house’’
