Pastor Tunde Bakare, the senior pastor of Latter Rain Assembly, Lagos, has said that he is not through with Nigerian politics yet, hence, he will be running for president of Nigeria.
 
A former running mate to President Muhammadu Buhari, Bakare, speaking with his church members during the crossover service at his Ogba, Lagos church, on Monday morning, said he was instructed by God on this next step.

Bakare said God told him to “return to politics and run for president and lead the nation to prosperity.”

In 2011, Bakare was the vice presidential candidate with Muhammadu Buhari on the Congress for Progressive Change (CPC) platform but lost the election to Goodluck Jonathan.


Still maintaining his close relationship with Buhari, Bakare supported him to win the 2015 presidential election where he eventually defeated Goodluck Jonathan.

Bakare told the Latter Rain Assembly members, “I heard the Lord say to me, politics is not over for you, there is still one thing left for you to do; run for president

“And He said to me, I will work it out myself. I will make it happen in due course. Please trust me, I lie not in the Holy Ghost. This is not easy for me to share with you. I shared this with you so that you can pray along with me.”

“I will make it happen in due course,” Bakare said, affirming that God has not told him the exact time for his presidential run.

KOGI State Governor, Alhaji Yahaya Bello, on Wednesday reiterated his support for the second term bid of President Muhammadu Buhari, saying the “anti-corruption czar remains the best option for a stable and united Nigeria”.


 
Bello, who spoke through his director general, media and publicity, Kingsley Fanwo, said Buhari has “unfinished business with Nigeria”.

According to him, the country had been witnessing unprecedented development since the coming of the president in 2015.

Bello said, “Nigeria has witnessed tremendous development under President Muhammadu Buhari. We are moving away from the crazy search for white collar jobs to have created over six million blue collar jobs less than three years into the first term of the Buhari administration. Our mining policies are now opening new vistas for prosperity and Nigeria is becoming more united than ever.

“The Federal Government is embarking on massive road construction and rehabilitation projects, rural electrification is also receiving a boost.


 
“When you see the progress we have made and still making in rail transport, you will agree with the Pro-Buhari agitators that the President needs to continue his good work beyond 2019.”

The governor said Buhari’s image and credibility could not be matched by those competing against him.

His words, “We are in a delicate transition from an era of unbridled corruption to an era of transparency and accountability. Nigeria needs to consolidate the gains recorded in the past 30 months. We can trust Buhari and his good works.”

He said his administration would concentrate on delivering democracy dividends to the people of the state despite distractions by opponents who are stunned by the progress of his administration.
