Pastor Tunde Bakare of The Citadel Global Community Church, has revealed a vision that he would become the next President of Nigeria, after President Muhammadu Buhari, come 2023.
In an interview, the Cleric maintained that he would be the 16th President of Nigeria.
According to him, he has never had the ambition to become President, but a vision, which he said are two different things.
He explained: “A companion of ambition is anxiety, while a companion of vision is peace. If that is my destiny, you will see it happen.”
On Media reports about him saying that will be the next President after President Buhari, Pastor Bakare responded: “Yes, I said so in the Church. I am a free citizen, my desire can be expressed, and anyone who is angry about that, can express their own. I said he (Buhari) is number 15, and I will be number 16.
Speaking about the clamour for Igbo Presidency, the Cleric noted that though every citizen has the right to express his or her own political aspirations, it is who the cap fits that wears it.
He noted that a day will come when it will not matter the ethnic nationality, but it will be who can deliver.
Bakare stated that he has never been one to clamour for zoning or no zoning. He is more interested in the best Candidate winning.
He wished the All Progressives Congress, APC, National Leader, Bola Tinubu, well in his rumoured ambition to become President in 2023, describing him as a formidable Politician, who is entitled to everything that he plans.
“May God assemble the best of the North and the best of the South, the most competent and the fittest, to be the ones that will run the affairs of our nation, and not the dregs of society”, he added.
Bakare added that Buhari has done well in his five years as President. According to him, he cannot fix 16 years of wrong in 5 years.
He added: “I think he is doing his honest best. This thing did not start yesterday, and it cannot be fixed overnight.”
He applauded Buhari for trying to diversify the economy, and his fight against corruption, which according to him, is yielding results.
