Rights activist Morakinyo Ogele has asked the electorate to disregard a statement credited to Lagos preacher Tunde Bakare that Ondo State Governor Olusegun Mimiko will win Saturday’s poll.

He said the preacher has a history of wrong predictions. He cited instances where Bakare’s predictions failed to come to pass.

Ogele, a lawyer, said: “His prediction that Mimiko will win the election is negative to what is going on in Ondo State. His colleagues should warn him to desist from playing God.

“Tracing the history of his predictions, none has come to pass.

In 1999, during the presidential election, he predicted that Chief Olusegun Obasanjo would lose, but at the end of the election, Obasanjo won.

“Again, before the inauguration of Obasanjo as the president, he predicted that he would die, but Obasanjo is still living.

“When we were protesting the removal of fuel subsidy in January, he predicted that the Jonathan administration would collapse within two weeks, but to date the administration is still in power.

“We appeal to the police to caution him and probably charge him with giving a false information.

“Bakare should not heat up the polity. He should be cautioned by Nigerians. Enough of his false predictions.”
