I warned Stephen Keshi - Primate Ayodele



The head of INRI Church, Primate Elijah Babatunde Ayodele disclosed to Daily Sunsports that he warned the former Super Eagles Coach, Stephen Keshi to seek the face of God after the AFCON 2013 Nations Cup tourney in South Africa. In a telephone chat with Daily Sunsports, he said he wrote a personal letter to the late coach Keshi after the South African 2013 Nations Cup to inform him of the divine revelation he received.

"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."

He however urged the NFF not to dismiss this revelation while insisting that the country does not require a foreign coach ahead of Russian 2018 World Cup qualifiers.

"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," Ayodele said.

He also warned that the crisis in the Nigerian Football Association - NFF should be tackled ASAP.

"The crisis is not good for our football. If it is not resolved everything will be at a stand still 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." 

On the domestic league, he said

"I see these clubs facing big financial problem that will affect not just their technical crew but the teams themselves. They need to pray to end the season without any crisis. Enyimba in particular can rule Africa again if they avoid management and players conflict. I see some confusion in the team and that could affect them psychologically. If they avoid this and pray together as a team they will make it this year."
