Tunde Bakare Insists on Succeeding Buhari in 2023
Pastor Tunde Bakare, the Serving Overseer of the Latter Rain Assembly, on Sunday (Oct 06, 2019) hit the polity again saying he would succeed President Muhammadu Buhari come 2023.
He noted that no 'certain' ethnic group has the monopoly to rule the country.
The pastor turned politician dropped the hint yesterday during the Sunday service in his church in the Ogba area of Lagos.
Bakare‘s new statement is coming a couple of weeks after he received backlash over his previous statement, from many Nigerians including former Aviation Minister, Femi Fani Kayode.
“Time has come to sit on a table of brotherhood and that’s why I said a President like President Muhammadu Buhari must rise up above partisanship and above petty ethnic sentiments, like Abraham Lincoln, like George Washington, to say let’s sit down, Nigeria must move forward.
“ It is bigger than any of us and it will be better for us to work together by getting the best of the North and the best of the South to think through the road path for the greatness of this nation.
“I detest the saying that a particular section of this country must not be trusted with power; no!
"Then, we cannot live together because nobody is going to be servant of anybody”, he said.
