Boycott IMF, foreign loans – Primate Ayodele to African presidents
The leader of INRI Evangelical Spiritual Church, Primate Elijah Ayodele has described the Kenyan President, William Ruto, as the messiah of the African continent. Ayodele made the remark while hailing Ruto for his presentation at the recently concluded Summit for a new global financing pact held in Paris, France. During the summit, Ruto slammed the unfair lending system and advocated for the African continent to be treated better than it is currently being addressed by the West. He also clamoured for African nations to stop trading with the United States, US dollars but with their own currencies. However, Primate Ayodele said African leaders have failed to understand that Ruto was a messiah because they have mortgaged their country, and have no vision. He explained that the continent has been enslaved and deceived by foreign organizations like the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and foreign countries especially the United States of America (USA). Primate Ayodele advised African countries to boycott IMF and foreign aid because they have the resources needed to thrive. Rather than going to beg foreign organizations, he urged them to have a unified currency in Africa and stop relying on US dollars to trade in Africa. In a statement by his Media Aide, Oluwatosin Osho, Ayodele said foreign organizations are not the best for Africa because they are killing the continent and introducing ungodly things to the continent. According to Ayodele: William Ruto of Kenya will be the messiah for every other country on the continent. Other presidents have mortgaged their country and they dont understand. They are too old, ruling the government for more than 40 years. There is no way that kind of person will lead, so God is angry with African leaders. We have natural resources but we begin to go to these people and be begging them for nothing. For how long will we continue to beg? Its either they all listen now or there will be economic and political revolution in Africa. "These organizations are killing Africa, trying to introduce ungodly things to us. Africa has been blessed, let us kick against IMF loans for years. Its not a must we spend dollars, let us have a unified currency we can use, let us ha an African central bank we can use. Africa is blessed but these people want to kill Africa and the future of the youths. Why are we allowing it? Primate Ayodele emphasised that the poor democratic system of government in Africa was one of its major problems, maintaining that if Africa must progress, democracy must be allowed to thrive in choosing leaders so the voice of the people can prevail. Ayodele assured that Africa can survive alone if presidents can be intentional about it. African leaders are the problems of the continent, we must stop this, we can change the mentality of our democracy, let us stop rigging and let the voice of the people prevail. "White people are not the best for Africa, they thought us about same-sex marriage and corruption, and it started from them. Some novel viruses also emanated from them. We are sleeping in Africa, we are in a serious mess, we need to rescue Africa, our leaders should be responsible and stop going to the Western world for loans and assistance. "We can exist on our own without their help, we only have leaders without visions, and thats our problem. We need young and vibrant presidents on the continent instead of those who have been in power for decades," he said.
