The General Overseer of the Latter Rain Assembly, Pastor Tunde Bakare on Monday, December 30 visited President Muhammadu Buhari at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
The fiery preacher on arrival at the seat of power, went into a closed-door meeting with the president after official photos were taken.
Daily Sun reports that the meeting between the duo lasted for over 30 minutes.
Bakare also declined to speak on the outcome of his meeting when approached by State House correspondents.
He pleaded that he had a flight to catch and promised to be back in January 2020.
Bakare was the running mate of Buhari in the 2011 presidential election under the defunct Congress for Progressive Change (CPC).
In a video that went viral recently, Bakare declared that he would be Nigeria’s next president come 2023.
“Take it to the mountain top if you have never heard it before. I am saying it to you this morning, in the scheme of things, as far as the politics of Nigeria is concerned, President Buhari is number 15 and yours sincerely is number 16.
I never said that to you before; I want to let you know it this morning; nothing can change it, in the name of Jesus. He (Buhari) is number 15; I am number 16.
“To this end was I born and for this purpose came I into the world. I have prepared for this for 30 years. When he (Buhari) chose to run in 2019, he is still number 15, when he steps out, I step in.
“His assignment is that of Moses, to take Nigeria to River Jordan, but he can’t cross it. It will take a Joshua to go to the other side and begin to distribute the resources to the people of this nation,” Bakare said to his congregation.
After the video went viral, Bakare clarified that the video was an old one which dates to about 19 months ago.
“It is the true expression of my political ambition. Whatever God has shown me is my private ambition,” Bakare said.
