The Leader Of INRI Evangelical Spiritual Church, Primate Elijah Ayodele has disclosed an alleged plot by President Buhari and the northern governors as preparation for the elections intensify.

In a statement signed by his media aide, Osho Oluwatosin, Primate Ayodele revealed that President Buhari is under pressure to hand over to Kashim Shettima by the northern elders and that the presidential candidate of the ruling party, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu isn’t in the agenda.

According to him, the northern elders want a Kanuri man to be the next president of Nigeria and not a Fulani man. He added that that was the reason Kashim Shettima was planted on the ticket.

Primate Ayodele, however, warned President Buhari not to meddle in the affairs of whoever succeeds him and that he should shut down the plans of the northern elders because it will lead Nigeria to a serious bloodbath, serious protest and anarchy.

"President Buhari is under pressure not to hand over to Atiku, Peter Obi and Tinubu. Shettima is a game plan of the northerners, not Tinubu and every avenue to install Shettima will cause serious bloodbath in Nigeria and serious protest and anarchy.’’

"The president is under pressure to hand over to a Kanuri man, the northern elders don’t want Fulani, they want Kanuri and that’s why they planted Kashim Shettima. They want to ensure APC wins the election and if that happens, Nigeria will sink.’’

"This is the plan but I want to warn President Buhari not to involve himself in such, he should not interfere in who succeeds him in 2023 and allow election to be free and fair."
