The leader of INRI Evangelical Spiritual Church, Primate Elijah Ayodele, claimed that President Muhammadu Buhari is under pressure by the Northern elders in the All Progressives Congress (APC) to hand over to Senator Kashim Shettima.
Elijah claims that the ruling party presidential candidate, Bola Ahmed Tinubu, is not even on the agenda.
Ayodele said this via a statement signed by his media assistant, Osho Oluwatosin, on Wednesday.
He insisted that Northern elders are focused on making a Kanuri man the next president of Nigeria not a Fulani person and that is why they planted Kashim Shettima on the ticket.
In his words:
‘’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.’’
