BEVERLY HILLS, January 02, (THEWILL) – The Serving Overseer of the Latter Rain Assembly, Pastor Tunde Bakare, who contested as the vice-presidential candidate on the platform of the defunct Congress for Progressive Change (CPC) in the 2011 presidential election, has stated that God told him to run for the Presidency.
Speaking at the cross over service at The Church’s auditorium in Ogba, Lagos, on Monday morning, Bakare said God has instructed him not to end his Political career as he had earlier contemplated.￼
Giving a rundown of the 12 major things he said God had revealed to him would happen in 2018, Bakare explained that God had not told him when the ‘appointed time’ to run for the presidency would be.
“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,” he said.
“In my study around 4am on Sunday morning, 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.’
“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.’
“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?
“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.”
Bakare also revealed that most of the political juggernauts in the country would fall at the feet of women in 2018 adding that some of those seen at the moment as among the most powerful in Nigeria’s political space, would be replaced.
“In 1998, I told you that I saw your President dying between two women. Did it happen? I’m telling you again: some of these political juggernauts will fall at the feet of women and you will see it happen,” he said.
