Pastor Tunde Bakare of the Latter Rain Assembly on Sunday said that he will be crowned Nigeria’s next president because he was destined to govern the nation.
The fiery, vocal pastor who made the proclamation during a sermon; as seen in a video that has since gone viral said that he will be Nigeria’s 16th president as “to this end I was born.”
“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 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,” Bakare said while placing his right hand on his chest.
“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.
Bakare told his congregation that 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,”
Yans reports that Buhari would have concluded his constitutionally permissible second term in office by May of 2023.
The Nigerian presidency, which is often rotated between a predominantly Christian south and a predominantly Muslim north, would most likely be left to the south–where Bakare hails from–in 2023.
Permutations, horse-trading and intrigues in this regard have already commenced.
