Femi Adesina, President Muhammadu Buhari’s Media and Publicity Aide has described as inconsequential and deceitful the prophecy by “doomsday” prophets who believe Nigeria will fall apart.
He said so far as there are patriots like Olusegun Obasanjo and his Principal, Buhari at the helm, together with the prayers of Nigerians, the country will stay one.
He said this on Thursday in response to Primate Elijah Ayodele of INRI Evangelical Spiritual Church, who said Nigeria will disintegrate by 2040
He wrote, “Nigeria will survive, as long as people continue to call on the living God. Nineveh prayed, and God changed His mind about destroying the city. President Buhari has said those of them who were on the frontlines for 30 months during the Civil War would never fold their hands, and see Nigeria break.”
“Rather than allow it, they would speak to the troublemakers ‘in the language they understand.’ Former President Olusegun Obasanjo also says those advocating the country’s break-up are ‘idiotic.’ Yes, we will always have people like Buhari and Obasanjo around. Nigeria will survive.”
“What am I saying? Don’t nations break? Where is the old Soviet Union, Yugoslavia, Czechoslovakia, and many others? Yes, those countries broke into splinters, but as for Nigeria, it would survive. Beyond 2035 and 2040, whether we are still here or not. And as long as patriots continue to lead the country. The foretelling was credited to Primate Elijah Ayodele of INRI Evangelical Spiritual Church, in Lagos.”
“The prophet gave the date and time of Nigeria’s unraveling as between 2035 and 2040. A person who wants to give you a fib would say his witness is in Heaven. How many people living now would still be alive in 2035 or 2040? Are we even sure of tomorrow, next week, next month, or next year, except by the mercies of God?”
