The identity of the Nigerian pastor who predicted the ascension of Joyce Banda, Malawi’s first female President has been revealed.
He is Primate Elijah Babatunde Ayodele, founder and spiritual leader of INRI Evangelical and Spiritual Church, Oke Afa, Ejigbo, Ejigbo Local Council Development Area (LCDA) of Lagos State, southwest Nigeria.
Thegazellenews.com had an exclusive encounter with Primate Ayodele in his church and he narrated how he met the woman who later become the first female President of Malawi and the second female President in the whole of Africa.
“We were on evangelical mission to Malawi and we met then Vice President Joyce Banda and her sister in her official residence. After we exchanged pleasantries, I told her that she would be the next President of Malawi.
Apparently, she was confused because her boss was still in power and the possibility of a woman becoming President in the country was not feasible. However I insisted that she would become the President because it was the message I have for her then,” Primate Ayodele said.
Few months after the encounter, Joyce Banda’s boss died and being the Vice President, she was sworn-in as the next President of the country making history in the process.
