BREAKING: “Peter Obi Can’t Get Victory at PEPT” – Primate Ayodele Makes Revelation, Gives Reason

Published

on

The Leader of INRI Evangelical Spiritual Church, Primate Elijah Ayodele, has advised Nigerians not to expect much from the presidential election petition tribunal, which will be sitting tomorrow.

POLITICS NIGERIA reports that the prophet made the declaration in a statement signed by his media aide, Osho Oluwatosin.

According to him, a rerun of the election is not certain because the powers that be are not willing to let go of their positions.

He explained that these forces are willing to prevent justice in order to retain power, and therefore, it will be very difficult to overturn the presidential election outcome at the tribunal.

“As it is now, it is still dicey, the rerun isn’t certain but God can change anything,” Ayodele said. “Majority of Nigerians will not like the outcome of the election tribunal, Nigerians should not expect too much from the election tribunal because the powers that be are not willing to let justice prevail.”

“They still want to retain power no matter what it takes; it won’t be an easy journey to overturn the outcome of the presidential election. I have said it before that the court will not be able to sack Tinubu if the opposition allowed him to win the election.”

Ayodele also mentioned that followers of Labour Party presidential candidate, Peter Obi, will be disappointed because the judgment will not go in their way. He revealed that the worst that can happen is a rerun.

He further called on those that will lose the case to maintain law and order to avoid throwing the country into unnecessary unrest and chaos.

“The judgment will not go the way Peter Obi and his followers want it. He cannot claim any victory through the tribunal and just as I have said, the worst than can happen is a rerun of the election or it will remain the way it is,” Ayodele said.

“No matter the outcome, losers should maintain law and order; they shouldn’t throw the country into riot because they lost the case.”

The prophet also urged judges to defend the unity of the country by ensuring justice prevails by all means without regard for the various forms of intimidation.

“The judges can either make or mar the country with their judgments. There is tension in the country already and the best they can do is to ensure justice prevails at all cost without regard for the several forms of intimidation. They should be responsible in delivering judgments regarding the case,” Ayodele said.

The military and police have recently warned against any unlawful action by troublemakers ahead of the delivery of the judgment in Abuja on Wednesday

Fulham 0-2 Chelsea: Mudryk, Broja strike to earn Blues their second league win of the season

Published

on

Chelsea bagged two first-half goals to seal a crucial win over West London rivals Fulham at Craven Cottage and move up to 11th on the Premier League table.

The Blues flew out of the blocks as they debuted their new Infinite Athlete kit and created the first chance of the match after only 80 seconds, but Armando Broja could not capitalise.

Chelsea looked bright with Enzo Fernandez conducting affairs, and they picked the Cottagers apart.

Mykhailo Mudryk was looking electric and dangerous. The Ukrainian winger opened the scoring on 18 as he controlled a pass from Levi Colwill before slotting the ball beyond Bernd Leno.

It was Mudryk’s first Premier League goal following his £88 million move from Shakhtar Donetsk in January. And within seconds, Chelsea had their second.

Tim Ream had a moment to forget as he gave the ball away to Cole Palmer. The young English playmaker then slipped Broja in, but Ream hit the ball off the Albanian striker as the ball trickled past Leno.

Fulham tried to find gaps behind Marc Cucurella and Axel Disasi on the right side of Chelsea’s defence, but it was not working. Chelsea controlled the game and held their two-goal going into the break.

In the second 45, Fulham came out with more attacking poise, and it helped that Mudryk went off with a knock, giving Fulham the impetus to come forward, but Chelsea’s defence stood resolute.

Vinicius and Alex Iwobi came on for Fulham and helped their side find spaces beyond Chelsea’s backline, but the Boys in Blue defended well and showed they were still dangerous.

Ian Maatsen, on for Mudryk, hit the post, and Leno had to be quick to smother Fernandez’s rebound effort. Fulham forced Chelsea to work for their lead, but Mauricio Pochettino’s men looked up to it.

Substitute Tom Cairney created a lovely chance for Sasa Lukic. However, Robert Sanchez stuck out a brilliant leg to save the effort and keep his side in it.

On 83, Willian tried an effort from outside the box, but it did not cause any problems for Sanchez as Chelsea ran out 2-0 victors

Man Utd winger Anthony in contention for Galatasaray UEFA champions league clash

Published

on

Erik ten Hag has confirmed that Antony could feature for Manchester United against Galatasaray after rejoining his ranks at Old Trafford.

The Brazil international forward was granted indefinite leave by the Red Devils following a series of alarming allegations made against him by former girlfriend Gabriela Cavallin.

Antony has been back in his homeland since then, allowing him to meet with police forces in Sao Paulo.

He returned to England last week and has held five hours of talks with Greater Manchester Police.

The 23-year-old winger maintains his innocence – having also faced accusations from two other women.

United have allowed him to focus on off-field matters of late, but revealed ahead of a Premier League meeting with Crystal Palace that Antony had been given a green light to return to training and was once again available for selection.

He has only taken in one session since then, suggesting that he will be short on match fitness, but Ten Hag says the South American is in his thoughts ahead of the Champions League group stage meeting with Galatasaray on Tuesday.

The Dutch coach has said: “Antony will be in consideration but yesterday was his first time back in team training. We have a final training, then we’ll make a decision.”

Ten Hag added when delivering an update on Lisandro Martinez – with the World Cup-winning Argentine defender still struggling with a long-standing foot injury: “I can confirm, yeah. Licha Martinez will undergo surgery and the team news is Antony can probably return.”

Antony’s last appearance for United came in the club’s 3-1 defeat at Arsenal on September 3.

He was removed from the Brazil squad for the last round of international fixtures and has not registered a goal for club or country since April 16.
