Senator Shehu Sani, a former federal lawmaker, has chided the leader of INRI Evangelical Spiritual Church, Primate Elijah Ayodele, over his 2021 Africa Cup of Nations against Nigeria.
Ayodele had predicted that the Super Eagles, will not win the AFCON, which kicks off in Cameroon on January 9, 2022.
In a tweet via his verified Twitter handle on Monday, Sani said the Ayodele only predicted that Nigeria would not win, but failed to state who the winners would be.
The former lawmaker stated that, “My Brother Primate Ayodele prophesied that Super Eagles will not win AFCON but refused to prophesy which country will win.”
Recall that Ayodele, who is known for his annual predictions, stated that the male football team would not win the tournament.
He had also stated that his prediction regarding the sack of the Super Eagles coach, Gernot Rohr, came to pass.
“Before the removal of the Super Eagles coach (Gernot Rohr), I said it since July and now that they are going for the Nations Cup, Nigeria cannot win,” he said.
