Spiritual head of INRI
Church, Primate Elijah
Babatunde Ayodele has spoken
of his revelations concerning
the death of former Super
Eagles coach, Stephen Keshi.
Ayodele said he wrote Keshi
a personal letter after the
South Africa 2013 Nations Cup
campaign to intimate him of
the divine revelations he got.
“I have been in deep pains
since I learnt of his death. Keshi
was a soccer icon. He served
Nigeria well both as a player
and as a coach. I remember
writing him a personal letter
after the Nations Cup in South
Africa and warned him to seek
the face of God. He needed
prayers and I told Nigerians
then that Keshi has completed
his assignment with the Eagles
after the Nations Cup and that
Eagles needed another coach to
move forward.”
“I have sent messages to
the NFF and I hope they will
listen. I have told them the
Abuja Glass House needs
some spiritual cleansing. On
the Eagles, I have made it clear
that what the Eagles need now
is not a foreign coach. This is
what God revealed to me. I m
not saying it to attract publicity
or for any financial gain. Let
Pinnick Amaju and his board
look inwards for a coach. From
what God has revealed to me,
an indigenous coach will not
only qualify the country for
the World Cup but take the
Eagles far in the competition
in Russia. Bringing a foreign
coach will be a disaster. They
shouldn’t waste money on a
white man.’’
“The crisis is not good
for our football. If it is not
resolved, everything will be at
a standstill and most of those
sponsoring the game will pull
out. There will be no money
in NFF and the country will
stop doing well. I just hope
the gladiators will seek the
face of God and know that the
country’s interest and that of
our youths should come first.”
