- Pastor Tunde Bakare has expressed deep concern for nation building as well as the 2023 general elections
- Bakare on Friday, October 15, disclosed that Nigeria should prioritized a competent leader and not power shift
- The cleric who is keen on the development of the country, insist that the best candidate that would move Nigeria to its promise land should be given power come 2023
Aso Rock, Abuja- The serving overseer of the Citadel Global Community Church (CGCC) (formerly Latter Rain Assembly), Pastor Tunde Bakare, has said that the important thing Nigeria needs right now is a competent president not agitation for power rotation.
Bakare, who revealed he shared what's in his heart with the President, noted it was political “immaturity” that drove the nation to the clamour for power shift when various zones that produced Nigerian leaders in the past had not fared better after many years of independence.
Asked about his position on the ongoing debate on power rotation, he said:

“I’d said it on the 3rd of October. It’s our immaturity, politically and otherwise, that makes us say power must either be in the North or be in the South, instead of looking for the best, the fittest, the most competent, and people of character who love this nation.
“Not where they come from, it’s what they carry and what they have to offer. May the best of the best of Nigerians rise, whether they’re from the East, from the West, from the North, and from the South.
“If there are agreements between politicians among themselves on rotation, a bargain is a bargain. That’s between them. But as far as this country is concerned, what we need at this stage is a man who can drive us to the Eldorado.”
