Tunde Bakare, the general overseer of the Latter Rain Assembly, insists he will become the next President of Nigeria after President Buhari completes his second term in 2023.
Last week, a video of the clergyman man making this declaration went viral. Speaking in his church yesterday Sunday September 29th, the clergyman said although the video of him making the declaration about becoming Nigeria’s 16th President was in February 2018, he is still certain that his declaration will come to pass.
“I’ll probably be the first President preaching on Sunday. Some are saying supposing it does not work; that is your opinion; when it works, I’ll invite you to the table. You think at this age I will deny things I said. It was mischief makers that took it from one year, seven months and then there was a publication in Tribune on Saturday and they circulated the thing on Sunday; even baba, Kabiesi Awujale said, ‘Ah, ah, the great pastor, you made this declaration and I don’t know anything about it?’ and I said, ‘Baba, it’s not true’ But you said this on Sunday in your church!’ and I said, ‘Sunday, when?’”
Speaking further, the clergyman said the number 16 was significant for him, recalling that the staircase in his father’s house has 16 flights and a book he wrote in 1993 has 16 chapters.
“You think this is an overnight thing? Go to my father’s house and count all the steps; in that house there are 16 steps. And I say it to those who care to listen; when that time comes, get ready, I will reach my goal. I meant everything I said. It was deliberately so,” he said
