The serving Overseer of the Latter Rain Assembly (LRA), Pastor Tunde Bakare, says President Muhammadu Buhari as the 15th president of Nigeria will hand over power to him as the 16th president.
The fiery preacher and lawyer said he had been prepared for the journey for more than 30 years.
The 1:35 seconds video did not specifically mention when the sermon was delivered by Bakare in his church headquarters in Lagos.
According to him, President Buhari assignment was to take the country to River Jordan but his (Bakare) assignment was to take Nigerians to the Promised land.
His words: “Take it to the mountain top. If you have never heard it before, I’m saying it to you this morning.
“In the scheme of things as far as the politics of Nigeria is concerned, President Buhari is number 15 and yours sincerely I’m number 16.
“I have never said that to you before. I make it plain this morning, I let you know it this morning and nothing can change it in the name of Jesus. He is number 15 and I’m number 16.
“To this end was I born and for this purpose came I into the world. I prepared you for this for more than 30 years. That is why if he wants to run in 2019, I do not oppose-he still number 15.
“It’s when he steps out, that I step in. His assignment is that of Moses to take Nigeria to River Jordan but he can’t cross it. It will take Joshua to go to the other side and begin to distribute resources to the people of this nation.”
It would be recalled that Pastor Bakare was the running mate of President Buhari in the 2011 Nigerian presidential election under the platform of the Congress for Progressives Change (CPC).
