A firebrand Pentecostal Pastor and founder of Citadel Global Community Church (formerly known as Latter Rain Assembly), Tunde Bakare, has joined the list of Presidential aspirants ahead of the 2023 poll.
Penpushing reports that, Bakare declared his interest at the ‘Unveiling Project 16 to Nigerians in diaspora’ event tagged “The portrait is a new Nigeria” held virtually on Saturday, disclosing that he would contest under the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).
The known fearless clergyman, it is recalled was the running mate of President Muhammed Buhari in 2011, but the duo failed to win the election, just as he described the past administrations as cake eaters
Penpushing further reports that, Bakare added that it is time to have the 16th administration of cake bakers, emphasisng that he is much interested to become the country’s 16th President, noting that ethnic conflicts and religion have continued to hinder the unity of Nigerians.
“This situation calls for a certain kind of leader. A mission of a new Nigeria and honest aspiration to serve as a 16th president of my beloved nation, Nigeria, I understand that part of God’s purpose for Nigeria is the actualisation of the idea that Muslims and Christians, the north and the south can come together as one great nation’, he stated.
“As a young boy, I had a vision of Nigeria. I grew up in my father’s house in Abeokuta, a storey building with 16 steps which today is the first family heritage museum in Abeokuta’, Bakare added.
The Ogun state born clergyman said he had once hawked to support his mother explaining that his poor family background pushed him to develop the required capacity to lead Nigeria, and while making reference to a biblical message said he believes that the new Nigeria is a mission of the 16th administration.
Penpushing also reports that, the aspirant assured Nigerians that if elected they would have access to good quality healthcare, where no youth is unemployed and young men and women, are job creators.
The vocal and blunt preacher while speaking further disclosed that his mission called projet 16 is anchored on four pivotal mandates – peace, progress, prosperity, and possibilities, stressing that he would turn the country to where businesses thrive, and any Nigerian can compete anywhere in the global market.
