- Pastor Tunde Bakare has once again expressed his willingness to contest for the presidency after Buhari’s second term expires
- The popular cleric said he was desirous of making Nigeria one of the greatest countries
- Bakare had previously predicted that he would succeed Buhari as Nigeria’s 16th president or head of state
The senior pastor of Latter Rain Assembly, Pastor Tunde Bakare, has expressed his willingness to contest for the presidency after the expiration of President Muhammadu Buhari’s second term.
Bakare announced his ambition again, during an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Saturday, March 9 in Lagos shortly after casting his vote at the Opebi Grammar School polling unit.
Legit.ng gathers that he said: “I am going to throw my hand into the fray. I am just waiting for President Buhari to finish his tenure.
“We cannot continue this way because we have something to offer this country, and we will by the grace of God.”
Bakare, who said that he was desirous of making Nigeria one of the greatest countries, added that he looked forward to a future where every Nigerian vote would count.
He said that he would continue to pray for the day when every Nigerian would come out and make their votes count.
He urged Nigerians to desist from allowing themselves to be deceived by ‘stomach infrastructure’ when the needed infrastructure in their communities had decayed.
Bakare was Buhari’s presidential running mate in 2011. He had also at Calgary, Canada, in January 2019, predicted that he would succeed Buhari as Nigeria’s 16th president or head of state.
Recall that Legit.ng previously reported that Pastor Tunde Bakare met with President Muhammadu Buhari at the Aso Rock Presidential Villa on Thursday, February 28.
The visit may have had something to do with the president’s recent electoral victory. However, the cleric did not speak with State House correspondents after the meeting.
