I’ll run for president if God and Nigerians say I should – Pastor Tunde Bakare

The founder of Citadel Global Community Church (formerly known as Latter Rain Assembly), Pastor Tunde Bakare, has revealed that he could run for the 2023 presidential elections.


He made this known today, after a private meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

Recall that in 2011, he was the running mate of Buhari on the platform of the Congress for Progressive Change.

Bakare told the State House Correspondents that his visit was to “dispense what was in my heart” to the President.

Asked whether he would contest the 2023 presidential election, he said he would, only if ‘God’ and ‘Nigerians’ want him to.


Bakare said;

“Every Nigerian, who is of age and who is not disqualified by any means, is free. I’m a nation builder, if God wants me to do that, and the people of Nigeria will appreciate that, why not? I’m as free as anybody to do anything with my time. I’ve pastored a church for 33 years, now we raise new leaders. I want to focus on nation-building.

“The Office of the President is only one office, there are so many other things we can do as people to support whoever is there to make sure that we do not go into retrogression, but begin to make steady progress as a people. I’ve already communicated clearly, my future plans to Mr. President, and it stays between us.”

On power rotation, Bakare stated,

“I had said it on October 3. It’s our immaturity, politically and otherwise, that makes us say power must either be in the North or be in the South, instead of looking for the best, the fittest, the most competent, and people of character, who love this nation.

“Listen to me, if where the president comes from will make the place he has come from to be better, the northern part of Nigeria should be the richest and should be the most progressive and the most developed because out of 61 years, the north has produced either the president or heads of state for 40 to 41 years, and yet see the retrogression in the North.

“If it’s from the South, why should a person like President Obasanjo freeze and seize the account of Lagos State in his own tenure? If it’s from South-South or South-East why couldn’t President Jonathan use all his powers to develop South-South/South-East?

“Not where they come from, it’s what they carry and what they have to offer. May the best of the best of Nigerians rise, whether they’re from the east, from the west, from the north, and from the south.

“If there are agreements between politicians among themselves on rotation, a bargain is a bargain. That’s between them. But as far as this country is concerned, what we need at this stage is a man who can drive us to the Eldorado.”

We will remibd him of his prophecy where he said after Buhari, he's next president.

Time is a gentle man, 2023 will tell if he spoke out of emotions or revelation from God.

Yorubas always too self-centered.

So Tunde Bakare thinks is right to continue with one Nigeria without giving the Igbos a sense of belonging?


Tunde Bakare has proven he's also a YorubaNistan Taliban.

One common thing about the Yoruba is that they all hate Igbos.


All Igbo's attending Yoruba owned churches are the worst fools on earth.
