- Primate Elijah Ayodele has predicted that Governor Rotimi Akereoldu will be betrayed
- The popular prophet also foretold that Agboola Ajayi will be backed against his estranged boss
- Ayodele stated that there is a mole in Akeredolu's camp which may make it difficult for the governor to have an easy ride to victory
Primate Elijah Ayodele has predicted that Governor Oluwarotimi Akeredolu of Ondo will be betrayed by some members of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the forthcoming guber election.
The INRI Spiritual Evangelical Ministry founder made this prediction in Lagos in an exclusive interview with Legit TV.
Ayodele stated that the governor will face a big hurdle as some people in APC will throw their weight behind Agboola Ajayi, Akeredolu's embattled deputy.
"Akeredolu will be betrayed. There is a mole in Akeredolu's group. Somebody is going to follow up with Agboola who is Akeredolu's deputy.
"Some people in APC will back him up against Akeredolu. He will not find the election so easy, it is going to be very tough. And if he does not work out his strategy very well, that election might turn around and come to Agboola.
"But if Akeredolu works very well, he can still regain the seat," the popular cleric prophesied.
The Ondo governorship election has been slated for October 10, 2020, by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), with the poll looking like a three-horse race.
Governor Akeredolu, who is seeking election on the platform of APC, will be putting his popularity on run against his estranged deputy Agboola who is going into the race with the flag of Zenith Labour Party (ZLP), and Eyitayo Jegede of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
Meanwhile, Legit.ng reported that the Ondo deputy governor denied rumours being peddled by some members of the opposition sides that he is cash-crunched ahead of the state's guber election.
Speaking ahead of the forthcoming poll which has put Ondo on the consciousness of electorates, bystanders and political analysts, Ajayi described the rumour of him being cash-crunched as untrue.
The embattled deputy governor also boasted that he has resources to finance his campaign despite growing insinuations that lack of funds was the reason ZLP has not launched its campaign.
