Akure, Ondo state - The self-proclaimed Servant of the Most High God, Primate Elijah Ayodele, has said “only God will decide the next governor for Ondo state”.

Primate Ayodele said although the “people of Ondo state are tired” of the APC, it will require a "coalition” for the opposition to dislodge the ruling party.

“Ondo people tired of APC": Ayodele

He said the APC’s arch-rival, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), is unorganised, urging the party (the PDP) to put their house in order.

The cleric said in a recent video seen by Legit.ng:

“Only God will decide the next governor for Ondo state because there will be so many hot matters after the APC election, and this would have been a good way for the PDP. But I’m not seeing the PDP in Ondo state in unity. They need a coalition, PDP, Labour, and other parties to come together to pick one candidate. That is the only way they can defeat the APC in Ondo state.
“People of Ondo state are tired of APC. They also need to pick a very good candidate who understands the state.”
