A Psychologist Tells Pastor Elijah Babatunde Ayodele To Take It Easy


A Psychologist Tells Pastor Ayodele His Nigeria Type Prophecies Are Not Predictions Because They Are Already Happening In The Country

Elijah Babatunde Ayodele, the Primate of the INRI Evangelical Spiritual Church, risks alienating congregation members and generating divisions within the country as long as he engages in peculiar religion type politics. Keep in mind that all churches need additional people and members. Yours is, too.

I recognize that there are serious political and economic challenges that can have a substantial influence on individuals and society, necessitating diverse dialogue such as yours. Unemployment, inflation, income inequality, market volatility, government policies, and other variables are examples of Nigeria’s ongoing economic challenges.

To be successfully resolved, these issues typically necessitate substantial investigation and care. So-called supernatural insights, such as yours and many others, are at best deceptive and based on realities on the ground.
To begin, consider the Naira’s floating or independent exchange rate procedure, which is determined by the free movement of a country’s currency demand and supply.

In the weeks and months since President Bola Tinubu’s inauguration on May 29, the Nigerian economy has been characterized by severe uncertainty. At least in the short term.

The intricate network of currency rates, along with continuous intervention, had been a drag on the economy, causing considerable distortions such as dollar and naira scarcity and inhibiting foreign investment. Furthermore, this method resulted in significant current account imbalances. Any Economist or first-year economics student interested in the monetary sector will tell you that introducing a new currency note and allowing it to freely float against other currencies, such as the US dollar or Naira, can have both positive and bad consequences. So, Oga Pastor, how is this a prophecy in reference to your supposed vision that the Central Bank of Nigeria’s (CBN) floating of the currency is not the best way to restore the Nigerian economy, we already know this!
The economy could be in terrible shape despite the expectations offered by the policy. This has already been stated by national and international economists.

Oga pastor, because we already know this, your Naira prophecy cannot be considered a miracle of information, a declaration, description, or representation of something future. So, stop it.

You prophesied that President Bola Tinubu’s move to float the naira was a blunder that would exacerbate the country’s economic troubles by driving up commodity prices. All economists have long recognized that it is a fact rather than a prediction or prophecy.

In the political sector, you cautioned that electing Senator Godswill Akpabio as Senate President (which we have already done) would be a slap in the face of the Igbos, who have long been marginalized in the country. What makes that a prophesy, Pastor Ayodele?

I don’t want to go into history, but during the heated presidential campaign in January of this year, the then-All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential candidate Bola Tinubu, now president, stated that unless the people of Southeast Nigeria supported his presidential ambition, they would be marginalized.

In a print media interview in November 2021, Chief Simon Okeke, former Chairman of the Police Service Commission and President of the Pan-Ndigbo Foundation, reiterated the collective mind of fair-minded Igbos regarding the South-East geopolitical zone never being given the opportunity to produce the president of this country; he also noted that denying an Igbo man the opportunity to ascend the seat of the president will be the highest level of marginalization ever. Oga prophet, ask any 10-year-old elementary school student in a social studies class about the unending anguish and atrocities against the Igbo people, and their justifiable indignation as a result.

So, Oga, pastor, when you indicated that the Senate President should be an Igbo, not a South-Southerner, and that a South-Southerner appearing is a slap to the Igbos, how is this a prophecy for God’s sake? We already know this!
You’re forcing me into history, Oga priest. Emeka Ojukwu, a former military soldier, statesman, and politician, stated in a January 2000 worldwide interview addressing various levels of leadership nominations in Nigeria that the Igbos had been mostly stripped or denied powerful appointments since the end of the war in 1970.

Sir, what type of prophecy is yours, considering the historical and contemporary accounts that any 10-year-old elementary school student in Nigeria will tell? About the Igbos marginalization.

Why would God send you to inform Nigerians of this long-standing fact, sir? That is not what divine communication or prophecy are for. Put a stop to it. In truth, what is the relationship between governmental appointments and biblical prophecy?

Oga pastor, I see the necessity of promoting and engaging these political, social, and cultural issues in public forums such as religious circles, but why are you cautioning President Tinubu to be wary of Nasir El-Rufai, the immediate past governor of Kaduna State? Why, regardless of his character, do not cause unneededpanic in an already troubled but rising democracy? Put a stop to it.

Why are you utilizing a religious forum to slander and condemn a Nigerian citizen in a country of over 200 million people? Encouraging this government to fear a single Nigerian is a tricky business at best, and it is ungodly at worst, so stop it.

Even if El-Rufai has committed a horrific crime. Suing him in civil or criminal court is the lawful course to take. Why not do that now.

As a forensic psychologist, I can make a scientific prediction that in an ethnically charged society like Nigeria, such careless words are character assassination or fearmongering tactics used to discredit or undermine a political opponent in politics, and spreading negative narratives, manipulating information, or appealing to people’s emotions for whatever reason is not godly. According to your profile, you are a preacher, not a police officer, criminal investigator, or politician.

Oga Pastor, I could go on and on about many of your strange remarks, but first and foremost, I’d like to applaud you forever considering a profession as a pastor in the first place. I highly advise you to focus your efforts on charitable work and addressing the challenges that Nigerians are currently facing. Political instability, corruption, poverty, bad infrastructure, ethnic and religious tensions, security concerns, and economic inequality are among the most serious difficulties. Everyone agrees that Nigeria’s economy and politics are critical areas that demand prayers, practical acts, and common sense; we don’t need prophets to realize that. Sir, like Mother Teresa, be much worried about the destitute, abandoned, homeless, and those in desperate need. Pastor, you know better than I do that the Bible is full of wisdom about God’s love for individuals living in poverty, uncertainty, and societal sadness; please keep that in mind. Pastors must focus on advising their congregations on topics of faith, morality, and spirituality. Pastors may be able to dedicate more time and attention to spiritual efforts if they avoid politics; therefore, do so.

I wholeheartedly support your efforts to promote public officials’ responsibility, ethical behavior, and citizen participation in order to effect constructive change. As a psychologist, I would advise you that, while you and other pastors and imams have the right to hold your own personal beliefs and participate in political debates as private citizens, in your role as spiritual leaders and pastors, you should avoid direct or indirect involvement in partisan politics. Pastors do not want to be viewed as religious media addicts who are pharisaic in body and soul. So, I say take it easy oo. Thank you for what you do for a true church job.
