Primate Elijah Ayodele, the leader of INRI Evangelical Spiritual Church, has called on Nigerians to pray for the judges handling the President Election Petition Tribunal (PEPT) and has expressed concerns about potential attempts to influence their judgments. He warns that if such attempts are successful, it could lead to a major crisis in Nigeria and cause suffering for its citizens.
Primate Ayodele emphasizes that any judge who allows themselves to be used as a tool for injustice will face consequences. He believes that divine intervention is necessary to guide these judges in making the right decisions and to protect them from external influences. According to him, these judges must be fortified against any form of manipulation, as they will be held accountable by God if they succumb to such pressures.
‘’Nigerians need to pray for judges at the presidential election petition tribunal. I see powers trying to influence them from doing the right thing.
“They are doing it already and if these powers succeed, it may lead the country into a huge crisis.
‘’This is not about the country alone, even any judge that allows him or herself to become a weapon for injustice will face the consequence. Nigeria is in pain and any judge who supports any kangaroo judgment will be in permanent pain, anguish and agony.
“The judges need God’s divine intervention to do the right thing. Our judges need to be fortified, they need cleansing, and they need the spirit of God at this moment.”
Primate Ayodele stated that judgment will either make Nigeria move forward or cause a set-back to the country.
He asserted that if the judgment doesn’t reflect justice, Nigerians will rain curses on the judges.
‘’The tribunal will either make Nigeria move forward or bring a setback to Nigeria. The thing is if the judgment doesn’t go in the direction of Justice, they will rain curses on judges. The curse will come in different dimensions. The judges should be sincere in their judgment for their sake and that of their families. They should do what is needful in order to help Nigeria and make the country better. We need a judgment that will rebrand Nigeria’’.
