Presidency Will Elude Igbos
The INRI Evangelical Spiritual Church leader, Primate Elijah Ayodele, has issued a warning to the South East ahead of the 2023 presidential election.
According to the man of God, the presidency would elude the Southeast in 2023 and they will have to wait for another time before their presidential ambition comes to pass.
In his words: “Who said Igbo president is the solution? It’s not a matter of ethnicity or where you are coming from; as a matter of fact, we need a very good person that God has ordained to be our president.
“Igbo presidency is not the solution to Nigerians problem, I am not a politician but am speaking as a prophet not as a pastor because so many pastors have corrupted the system and can’t tell the truth because they believe they are of government interest.

Mr Ibu Says He Can Do Without Sex For 2 Years
Nigerian actor and comedian, John Okafor, aka Mr Ibu says many women are attracted to him but he is not controlled by sex.
The actor said he could stay off sex for two years, saying he is not sex-crazy at all.
Mr Ibu, who disclosed this in an interview with Punch also said he had stayed off sex for months already because he was poisoned in December 2020.
He said, “I am not sex-crazed at all. I can abstain for two years. When I had a problem, I stayed off sex for a long time. I am not controlled by sex. As of now, I have stayed off sex for at least four months. Remember that I was poisoned in December 2020, so I need to recuperate before engaging in such acts. My wife is also missing me. It was not easy for her. She was crying every minute because she genuinely loves me.
“Some people have said that people with potbellies are not good lovers or sexually active but being good on the bed is relative. My answer to this is that I have 13 children (10 boys and two girls) though I lost one of them. That is the evidence of my sexual virility. I hatch children like pigeons.”
The actor also said he doesn’t cheat on his wife.

Christian Association Of Nigeria Speaks On Igboho’s Attack On Pastor Adeboye
The Christian Association of Nigeria has said that no Christian leader in the country has kept quiet over the situation of Nigeria.
CAN noted that it had no comment for popular Yoruba nation activist, Sunday Adeyemo, more commonly called Sunday Igboho, who insinuated that some elders in Yoruba land did not support the agitations for secession and establishment of the Yoruba nation.
Pastor Bayo Oladeji, the Special Adviser to the CAN President, Rev Supo Ayokunle, stated this in an interview with SaharaReporters on Sunday.
Earlier today, Igboho had appeared in an interview, saying he would not offer his condolences to Pastor Enoch Adeboye, the General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, over the death of his son, Pastor Dare Adeboye, because the cleric refused to support agitations for the Yoruba nation.
Sunday Igboho had added that he would not sympathise with Adeboye or anyone who refused to champion the course of Yoruba nation.
When asked for his opinion about Igboho’s comment, Pastor Oladeji said, “I am sorry. No comment. If that is how you all see it, let it be. If CAN has been keeping quiet over the happenings in the country, if that is how you see it, too bad. We are not ready to reply Sunday Igboho.”
