The Serving Overseer of the Latter Rain Assembly, Pastor Tunde Bakare, has said God has told him to run for presidency .
During the Watch Niger service at Latter Rain Assembly,while giving a rundown of the 12 major things he said God had revealed to him would happen in 2018, Bakare who ran as Vice president, alongside president Buhari in 2011 said
“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 4am 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.
“Joseph (in the Bible) 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? 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 stated.
