Nigerians react on social media to video of the senior pastor and founder, Latter Rain Assembly, Tunde Bakare ‘s declaration that he would succeed President Muhammadu Buhari as the president of Nigeria.
Pastor Bakare, had said that God has already ordained it and that nothing could change it because he was born to be president during his sermon on Sunday at his church.
Watch video below;
“In the name of Jesus, he is number 15. I am number 16. To this end was I born and for this purpose came I into the world. I have prepared you for this for more than 30 years. ”
“To this end was I born and for this purpose came I into the world. I have prepared for this for 30 years. When he (Buhari) chose to run in 2019, he is still number 15, when he steps out, I step in’.
The pastor has never hid his desire to lead Nigeria someday, as he keeps saying that he is only waiting for God’s appointed time.
Bakare and Buhari had been friends for awhile as the pastor had been Buhari’s running mate in the 2011 presidential election on the platform of the Congress for Progressive Change (CPC).
Nigerians however give mixed reactions about the declaration as seen below;
NEXT PRESIDENT TUNDE BAKARE???
I used to revere Pastor Tunde Bakare but when his "Prince of Adamawa" prophecy of 2012 failed to come to pass, I started seeing the man as a False Prophet.
How am I supposed to believe his self promoting prophecy of 2019?
