The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) will not win the 2019 Kogi State Governorship elections, according to the prophecy of Primate Elijah Ayodele.

Concise News learned that Primate Ayodele in his prophecy for the Kogi Guber polls, urged the PDP to field Senator Dino Melaye if it wants to win the seat.

He also warned that failure to give the ticket to Dino means an automatic win for Governor Yahaya Bello’s All Progressives Congress (APC) in the November 16 election.

“I have said it that these prophecies will come to pass unless the important things are done to forestall them,” he said.

“If PDP wants to win the forthcoming election, Dino Melaye is the best bet for the ticket, otherwise APC will retain the seat.”

However, the prophecy and counsel of the founder of INRI Evangelical Spiritual Church in Ejigbo, Lagos, may have put the opposition PDP in trouble.

This is because the party on Wednesday choose Musa Wada as the governorship candidate for the Saturday, November 16 election in Kogi state.

This rules out Dino Melaye from the contest as the clergyman had counselled the PDP.
