Primate Elijah Ayode, the leader of INRI Evangelical Spiritual Church, has claimed that Governor Rotimi Akeredolu of Ondo state is battling with a spiritual illness.
The cleric therefore advised indigenes of the state to seek spiritual solutions.
He disclosed this in a statement signed by his spokesman, Oluwatosin Osho.
Ayodele said Akeredolu needs prayers to be able to return to power because the illness is a result of forces that don’t wish him well.
According to Ayodele, Akeredolu’s family members need to step into the spiritual aspect instead of focusing on the medical aspect of the illness alone.
He said: ‘’Governor Akeredolu needs prayers for him to come back to office and to return to power. His family needs to seek the face of God concerning his illness.
“It is more spiritual than physical. There are forces fighting him that don’t wish him well. He needs prayer for his health. His family should step into the spiritual aspect of it.’’
Primate Ayodele further disclosed that the sickness is determined to make Akeredolu completely incapacitated and warned that the governor’s health shouldn’t be used for any political trick.
‘’The people of Ondo need to pray for their governor. The illness is determined to make him completely incapacitated if they don’t seek the face of God on time so that he can finish his term.
“His family and well-wishers should seek God’s face. They shouldn’t use Akeredolu’s life for political interest, what he needs now is prayers of restoration.’’
