‘Buhari will hand over power to me in 2023’, Tunde Bakare boasts

Pastor Bakare ‘ordains’ President Buhari as Bishop

The Senior Pastor and founder of the Latter Rain Assembly, Pastor Tunde Bakare, has boasted that he will become Nigeria’s president come 2023.

Bakare,made this declaration in a video which has gone viral on social medial, insisting that he would succeed President Muhammadu Buhari as the country’s 16th president. According to him, this is why he was born.  

His words; “Take it to the mountain top if you have never heard it before. I am saying it to you this morning, in the scheme of things, as far as politics of Nigeria is concerned, President Buhari is number 15 and yours sincerely is number 16.

“I never said that to you before, I want to let you know it this morning; nothing can change it, in the name of Jesus. He (Buhari) is number 15; I am number 16,” Bakare boasted, placing his right hand on his chest.

To this end was I born and for this purpose came I into the world. I have prepared for this for 30 years. When he (Buhari) chose to run in 2019, he is still number 15, when he steps out, I step in.  

His assignment is that of Moses, to take Nigeria to River Jordan, but he can’t cross it. It will take a Joshua to go to the other side and begin to distribute the resources to the people of this nation,” Bakare told his congregation in the video.  

This may not be the first time the fiery clergy is making allusion to succeeding Buhari. During one of his past sermons, Bakare used biblical references and analogies to indicate that his emergence as the next president may not be by election but appointment or imposition.

He alluded to the story of how King Solomon succeeded his father, King David even when he was not the next in line of succession among King David’s children, pointing out that many of those who assume they are the anointed successors would be disappointed.  

It would be recalled that Bakare had, many times, criticised previous and present governments in the country. In 2012, Bakare was among those who mobilised forces for daily protests that lasted more than two weeks at the Gani Fawehinmi Park, Ojota, Lagos, against the removal of subsidy on petroleum products and consequential price increase announced by the administration of former President Goodluck Jonathan.  

In the 2011 presidential election, Bakare was the running mate to the then presidential candidate of Congress for Progress Change (CPC), Muhammadu Buhari, who lost the election to Goodluck Jonathan of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP).

Although 2023 is four years away, the country’s political sphere has been unsettled with the clamour by many individuals and regions laying claims to being the rightful successors to the presidency in 2023. This is in spite of the gloomy economic outlook of the country presently.
