A Yoruba traditional priest and the Egbeji of Nigeria, Bola Adegunloye, has predicted that the All Progressives Congress (APC) governorship candidate in Lagos State, Akinwunmi Ambode, will win the governorship election on April 11.

Adegunloye, who spoke to journalists in Lagos at the weekend maintained that “Despite the support and sympathy garnered by the candidate of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Jimi Agbaje, it will be difficult for him to win the next governorship elections in Lagos State.”

The priest, who claimed that he had predicted the defeat of President Jonathan in 2015 presidential election since last year, stated that with the emergence of Muhammadu Buhari as the country’s president, Nigerians will definitely heave sigh of relief.

Adegunloye stressed: “I want to tell Nigerians to remain hopeful and pray fervently because the new administration will chart a better course that will transform the country better than what we are experiencing at the moment”.

He advised APC to be careful in managing internal disputes that may arise from the victory as many PDP members will soon want to join the party.

He emphasised that what led to President Goodluck Jonathan’s “defeat at the poll was his inability to positively affect the lives of ordinary Nigerians while the opportunists were busy looting government treasury.”

Adegunloye further predicted that APC will retain power for another eight years at the centre, strssing, “I see the victory of APC at the centre extending for another eight years.”
