2 Min Read

A former running mate of President Muhammadu Buhari, Pastor Tunde Bakare of the Latter Rain Assembly has spoken out against the government, decrying the state of affairs in the country.

He also said that due to events and his history with Buhari, he might have to release a video on the ‘Buhari i didn’t know’

While he criticized the non-viability of many states in the country describing them as “vegetable states on life support.”, he also stated that he would not be running against Buhari

This comes after he had earlier stated that God told him to run for the presidency.

Tunde Bakare while revealing this to his congregation had 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 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.”

He added then “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.”
