Pastor Tunde Bakare of the Latter Rain Assembly is set to lock horns with other politicians for presidential race at God’s appointed time. Bakare, who was a Vice Presidential candidate to incumbent President Muhammadu Buhari, said he had been directed by God to contest. He said God has told him not to end his political career as he had earlier contemplated. Bakare, in 2011 contested as the vice-presidential candidate on the platform of the defunct Congress for Progressive Change (CPC).
He said God told him to run for the Presidency. The Lagos-based cleric spoke in the early hours of Monday during the watch night service at the Latter Rain Assembly in the Ogba area of Lagos. Contesting the presidential election of one of the 12 things God revealed would happen in 2018, he said. Bakare explained that God had not told him when the “appointed time” to run for the presidency would be. “This twelfth one is a difficult one for me. It may draw excitement or condemnation. I have tried my best to keep it (to myself) but the Holy Spirit will not allow me to do so. “In my study around 4 am on Sunday morning, God told me ‘you cannot bring your political career to a close; there is still more to do. Run for the Presidency. I will do it at the appointed time,” the pastor added.
