The Latter Rain Assembly’s Pastor Tunde Bakare has declared again that God insists he run for Nigeria’s presidency.
No time stated, though.
Bakare announced this during the New Year service at his church in Lagos where he reeled out 12 revelations he got about Nigeria.
According to him, God told him not to abandon his political career.
“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,” he said.
“In my study around 4 a.m. 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.
He added that the revelation might prove difficult to actualise. But he said he is resolute.
He saw a parallel between him and Joseph in the Bible.
“Joseph did not contest an election, yet he became the prime minister of Egypt. Why must I worry myself about where to get the resources for the task?” He said.
“Your own duty in this assignment is to pray along with me. When it is the appointed time,
He (God) will do it. When He tells me the time, you will hear about it,” he said.
Bakare also prophesied that women will break their glass ceilings in many fields in 2018, both in Nigeria and globally.
And, again, many politicians in the country will fall “at the feet of women in 2018.clericm and some of them will be replaced.
“In 1998, I told you that I saw your president dying between two women. Did it happen?
I’m telling you again: some of these political juggernauts will fall at the feet of women and you will see it happen,” he said.
Bakare was Ptesident Muhammadu Buhari’s running mate in 2011, when they were in the Congress of Progressive Change before it merged with the ACN and other parties ti form the APC.
He has been criticising the APC government Buhari now leads.
