The ruling party, All Progressive Congress (APC) after so many hurdles finally held a national convention yesterday Saturday, 26th Of March, 2022 in Abuja.
The convention was well attended by bigwigs of the party and didn’t end till late hours of the night when the election for new national executives was held.
There have been many opinions about the convention of the ruling party but most prominent of them all was the prophecy of Primate Elijah Ayodele which caught the attention of the ruling party, the opposition party and the citizens of Nigeria as a whole.
Primate Ayodele doesn’t need any introduction when it comes to prophecy, he is known for talking about virtually every sector of the society and politics is one of them. Long before the APC crisis began, the man of God had warned that the party would have issues before 2023. Even when Mai Mala Buni was appointed as the caretaker committee chairman, Primate Ayodele made it known that he foresees a gang-up against him, this came to pass few weeks ago when an attempt to forcefully remove him was carried out successfully but was overturned following the intervention of President Muhammadu Buhari.
When APC proposed to hold a national convention last year, Primate Ayodele told the party that the convention would be postponed and it happened. Again they came up with the idea that it will be held at the beginning of the year, the man of God still said it won’t hold, it happened again. When another date which was March 26 was proposed, Primate Ayodele made another set of shocking revelations that will happen during the convention.
His first revelation on the convention dates back to 15th Of March, 2022 and he warned the party to be careful if not the convention will cause more crisis in the party. He spoke on the selection of the new national chairman, revealing that some ‘cabal’ will be responsible for it.
These were his words
‘’ The APC Must be careful in its forthcoming convention because it will break the party if they don’t put things in order. Buni will not see the mercy of some people and the governors must be careful because putting somethings together will still cause crisis in the party ‘’
‘’So many factors will determine the next APC National chairman, two major politicians will be in the contest and President Buhari’s decision will be directed by the cabals. The cabals will pick the next chairman of the APC and the presidential candidate.’’ (https://pmnewsnigeria.com/2022/03/15/primate-ayodele-releases-fresh-prophecies-on-apc-convention-pdp/)
In another prophecy which was released two days before the convention, Primate Ayodele made another revelation about the national convention of the ruling party which seemed impossible. This time around, he spoke on what will happen during the convention.
These were his words
‘’The cabal will scale through with their plans in the national convention, let the leaders watch against violence. The convention will come through in a surprising way, there will be a lot of game-changers in the convention and it will end some political characters in the APC.’’
‘’Some will be angry, some will angrily leave the convention ground due to the embarrassment they will witness.’’
‘’The fact still remains that the cabal will succeed in selecting the national chairman of the APC. The game plan will change at the centre. Some people who want to contest for the 2023 presidency within the party will be affected by the result of the convention. The convention will bring about issues in the party and some bigwigs will be fizzled out in the party as a result of this.

Taking a look at these prophecies, four major things were prominent and they include cabal’s success in choosing the next chairman, surprising end of the convention, anger/embarrassment, issues within the party.
Following the outcome of the national convention yesterday, these four major things prophesied by the man of God conveniently came to pass.
On Cabal’s success in choosing the next chairman, it would be recalled that the APC governors kicked against a consensus candidate for the national chairman of the party. Abdullahi Adamu was proposed to be the consensus candidate as he had the backing of President Buhari. It is also worthy of being noted that President Buhari isn’t solely behind the choice of Adamu, it was a joint decision of some people who proposed him to the president. Of course, they were not the governors, they were certainly the inner caucus of the administration and could be referred to as ‘Cabals’. Their plans to install Adamu as the chairman of the party scaled through, fulfilling Primate Ayodele’s prophecy.
On the surprising end of the convention, delegates had stormed the venue of the convention so they could vote for their choices but surprisingly, there was a last minute change that resulted in consensus candidates for all the positions. Of course, delegates were astonished with the way the event turned out to be, fulfilling Primate Ayodele’s prophecy.
On embarrassment and anger in the convention, indeed these words are an understatement compared to what happened at the tail end of the convention yesterday. There was mild drama yesterday when some aspirants disagreed to step down for any consensus candidate, it even resulted into a fight on stage. The likes of Mrs Mary Okpe, Hon Nduka, Dada Oluwasegun, Adebayo Shittu, others openly declared their rejection of consensus candidates. Hon Nduka was quoted saying he will not step down for someone who just came into the party three months ago. Dada Oluwasegun who aspired to be the national youth leader cried on stage before walking out while he was forced to say he has stepped down from the race. These all fulfilled Primate Ayodele’s prophecy.
On creating issues within the party, to be factual, the issues the convention has created within the party will not go down any time soon. There are a lot of aggrieved people within the party already and except a divine intervention occurs, Primate Ayodele’s prophecy on the breakage of the party after the convention will come to pass.
