The General Overseer of the Latter Rain Assembly, Lagos State, Pastor Tunde Bakare, again says a trending video of him saying he will become Nigeria’s next President was merely an expression of his aspiration.
Recall that the clergyman had declared that he would take over from President Muhammadu Buhari when his tenure expires in 2023.
“I will succeed Buhari as President of Nigeria, nothing can change it. I am number 16, Buhari is number 15.
“I never said it to you before. I am saying it now and nothing can change it.
“In the name of Jesus, he is number 15. I am number 16. To this end was I born and for this purpose came I into the world,” Bakare had said.
While speaking on his taking over from President Muhammadu Buhari come 2023, Bakare said what God showed him was his personal business.
The popular Pentecostal pastor added that he had a right to aspire to the highest office.
“It is the true expression of my political ambition. Whatever God has shown me is my private ambition,” Bakare said.
Pastor Bakare further explained that the video was shot about one year and seven months old
