Tunde Bakare, Pentecostal pastor and a former running mate to President Muhammadu Buhari at the 2011 general elections Pastor Tunde Bakare says he will become the president of Nigeria someday.
Bakare told the congregation at his Latter Rain Assembly Church in Lagos on Sunday that he was created to fulfil the purpose, although it might not be through an election.
He highlighted cases in which leaders emerged in in the Bible without having to go to the polls, as well as similar historical incidents in the world.
“I came to the world to lead Nigeria into her prophetic destiny,” said the clergyman. “It will happen in due course in God’s way and in God’s time.”
“Some may ask, how then can it happen if not by elections? My simple response is that there are biblical precedents, including the stories of Joseph, David, Nehemiah, and Daniel.
“There are also historical precedents in the case of George Washington whose unanimous election was merely an endorsement,” he added.
