The general Overseer of the Latter Rain Assembly, Pastor Tunde Bakare, has revealed God asked that he continues with his political ambition.
Pastor Bakare, who contested as the vice-presidential candidate while defunct Congress for Progressive Change was still much active back in the 2011 presidential election, said God told him to run for the Presidency.
He made this known during the watch night service at the Latter Rain Assembly in the Ogba area of Lagos.
While telling the congregation the 12 major things he said God revealed would happen in 2018, running for presidency at the “appointed time” is one of them.
“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 4am 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.”
Bakare also made it known he is not in the least perturbed by the unsettling task that his aspiration might bring,adding that once the Lord has spoken, it is left for God to perform it.
