Popular Lagos-based cleric, Pastor Tunde Bakare, has revealed to members of the church he oversees, The Latter Rain Assembly, that God has instructed him not to end his political career, and run for President.
He made this announcement in the early hours of Monday, Jan 1 during his church cross over service in Ogba, Lagos state.
While explaining a list of twelve major things he said God had revealed to him that would happen in 2018, Pastor Bakare explained the one that is related to him contesting for the presidency saying “This twelfth one is a difficult one for me; it may draw excitement or condemnation. I have tried my best to keep it to myself but the Holy Spirit will not allow me do so.
”In my study around 4am on Sunday morning, God told me ‘you cannot bring your political career to a close’ there is still more to do. Run for the presidency.
“I will do it at the appointed time” he added .
Pastor Bakare had previously contested as the Vice Presidential candidate during the 2011 general elections. He contested alongside President Muhammadu Buhari under the platform of the defunct Congress for Progressive Change.
