The Leader Of INRI Evangelical Spiritual Church, Primate Elijah Ayodele has warned candidates to be careful of their health.

On Sunday, January 22, Primate Ayodele said that the 2023 presidential election is not for those who are unhealthy but rather a job that requires fitness.

Primate Ayodele claimed that a prominent person among the governors, senators and House of Representatives members that will be elected will die.

He warned people who are unwell to take care of their health. "My fear in the next election is that Nigeria will lose a prominent person among the governors, senators and rep members they will be voting for. If you know you are unhealthy, go and take care of yourself, election is not what you need.’’

He also raised concerns about the failure of the candidates to address the issues affecting the country during their campaigns.

According to him, he fears Nigerians may continue to face the problems ravaging the country.

"Presidential candidates are only looking for votes, they have not addressed issues, they are saying they can do all which isn’t possible.

“They are not really discussing issues; we are facing insecurity, economic, education problems, they have not explained how they will tackle this.

“Are we sure we are heading towards an election because those that want to represent us have not come out to let us know how they will handle these problems we are facing. We may still end up facing the same problems in the next dispensation because they are not addressing these issues,’’ he said.

The Prophet urged Nigerians to vote for a candidate who will unite the country.

Speaking on the BVAS, he warned INEC to be mindful of their approach to the upcoming election.

"INEC must take this election seriously more than what they have been doing, we can’t withstand any rigging because we are in a dilemma and we need to elect who will put the country together. BVAS is the answer to have a credible election and INEC must put in all efforts to ensure it happens.’’
