The whole human race and its activities are remote controlled in the supernatural.

The supernatural determines what befalls mankind at all times.

The power to become whatsoever, acting as an authority or serving as subordinate at any level of human endeavours rest only with the creator of the universe.

Thus the Holy book ( The Holy Bible) in Ecclesiastes 9: 11 Says:
…the race is not to the swift, nor the battle to the strong, neither yet bread to the wise, nor yet riches to men of understanding, nor yet favour to men of skill; but time and chance happeneth to them all.

We are who and what we are as our maker’s fancy pleases.

This is very much obvious in Nigeria political space where the strong and mighty struggle for power, but God does His will at the end of the day.

A case in point is an Adamawa born moneybag, Alh Atiku Abubakar who became Governor of Adamawa State in his 4th attempts. Atiku Abubakar who was Vice President under Olusegun Obasanjo administration in 1999-2007 has always deployed all human efforts possible to be Nigeria President in 1993, 2007, 2011, 2015, 2019 and had never succeeded till date. Atiku is in his 6th attempt to become Nigeria President in 2023. Would God shows him mercy this sixth time?

In 2007, former President Olusegun Obasanjo preferred a frail and sick Umaru Musa Yar’Adua whom he picked from obscurity to succeed him instead of Atiku Abubakar whom in human comparison eyes was healthier and richer than Yar’Adua.

Goodluck Ebele Jonathan, son of canoe carpenter, who had no shoe and school bags throughout his primary and secondary school days was also picked from obscurity to run on a joint ticket with Musa Jar’Adua as Vice President.

In the midst of richest Nigerians like Aliko Dangote of Dangote Group, Femi Otedola of Zenon Oil, Theophilus Danjuma of South Atlantic Petroleum,Tony Elumelu of UBA, Jim Ovia of Zenith Bank, Mike Adenuga of Conoil/Globacom, Abdulsalam Ribiu of BUA Group, Oba Otudeko of Honeywell Group, Cletus Ibeto of Ibeto Group, Benedict Peters of Oando etc, Jonathan who said at Eagle Square in Abuja in 2010, that he rarely had three square meals a day while living with his parents who were very poor, but was made President of Nigeria under the Doctrine of Necessity in 2009 and subsequent elected Nigeria President in 2011.

MKO Obiola was far richer than Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu of this generation, but was never allowed to be Nigeria President even when he won in 1993.

Although not found guilty, Chief Olusegun Obasanjo became Nigeria President after been released from prison. Being Associated with prison wasn’t a good credential for such a job, but God made him the country President over us regardless of such demeaning experience.

Was Obasanjo richer than MKO Obiola? Obviously no, but providence and destiny solely managed by the owner of the universe made OBJ Nigeria President and MKO could not be, his victory notwithstanding.

Muhammadu Buhari was absolutely on his own in all his three human efforts of attempting to be elected Nigeria President untill God’s grace found him in 2015.

One can’t become anything anywhere in the universe except God approves it. And mostly when it comes to instituting one in a position of authority to supretend over the affairs of men on the earth, God is always involved at 100%.

Governments at all levels is the extension of the kingdom of God on the earth.
Although it takes human efforts to institute any government anywhere, but the “will-power” to install the man or woman to oversee the affairs of men at that material time rest only with the owner of the universe.

Nigeria is a clear flagship country where the race to power is not given at any level to the swift, the strong and the mighty. But God always shows mercy to whom it pleases Him to show mercy.

This means, only God installs men in power in Nigerian and not prophets.

I do not disbelieve prophets. Not I alone, most Nigerian too.
But, where a prophet publicly declared a thing, and what he said does not come to passed as predicted, the prophet may never be trusted further.

Primate Elijah Ayodele of INRI Evangelical Spiritual Church would have caused all Nigerians to believe all his prophesies if he has foreseen last month bombing of Abuja-kaduna train and restrained Nigeria Railway Company from plying that route.

Where was Primate Ayodele’s vision before the chibok girls abduction? There have been multiple lives massacres in Plateau, Kaduna, Benue, Zamfara, Borno States etc and never for once has Ayodele’s vision saw them coming.

How and when would Nigeria comes out from the lingering nationwide insecurity has never been revealed to Primate Ayodele.

Is the “gods” or God Primate Ayodele serves not knowledgeable on National Economy Management? Why is his god only seeing more or less trivial issues?
Why can’t his god reveals to him what the Federal Government of Nigeria should do to get us out of this long overdue economy quagmire?

Primate Elijah Ayodele prophesies shouldn’t deter any genuine aspirant with clear conscience to serve the people anywhere in Nigeria.

God reverses prophesies. A clear example is the notice of death given to Hezekiah by prophet Esaiah. Isaiah 38:1-5

This scripture says Asaiah a prophet, went to Hezekiah and informed him to get ready to die in few days. Hezekiah turned to God and pleaded for mercy. And instantly God reversed Himself and granted Hezekiah’s petition and gave him more days to live.

Pastor Umo Eno whom Primate Ayodele cited as one of the aspirants whose ambition will be cut short anytime soon, is not correct.

Clear analysis shows that Ayodele made this statement considering a wrong notion he has on Pastor Umo Eno background and capacity.
He is clearly undermine Pastor Eno with notion that until one is famous or notorious, he cannot win any election in Nigeria.


Pastor Umo Eno is cast in the mould of Prophet Amos. Read Amos 7:10-15.

Let me narrate this portion of the scripture to our readers: Amos was one of the least prophet in Israel. No one believed in him. He was disrespected and not hearken to because of his background. Amos himself never faked his background like Pastor Umo Eno who always admit that he is the least amongst people Governor Udom Emmanuel should have picked to succeed him.

Prophet Amos was the son of a herdman and a fruit vendor. Amos was also doing his father’s job until God picked him and made him prophet over Israel.

He was undermine by people and government of Jeroboam king of Israel of that time, yet his performance convinced Amaziah the Priest that he was indeed the anointed of the Lord, yet they still hated him.

Hatred or no hatred, did that stop Amos from performing?

The answer is No.

Pastor Umo Eno should treat Ayodele’s prophesy the same way Hezekiah treated Esaiah prophesy. Let Pastor Umo Eno, kindly turn to God now to reverse that prophesy if he feels threatened by it. The God of Hezekiah is the same Yesterday, Today and Forever.

Primate Ayodele prophesies to States claiming that this or that will happen is bullshit. Nothing of such will happen.

Last year Primate Ayodele prophesied and said Senegal will lose and an Arab country will win 2021 Africa Cup of Nations. Yet that prophesy failed.

History in Nigeria has it that God gives power to whom
his fancy pleases and not who a prophet chooses for him.
