The pastor of the Latter Rain Assembly, says God instructed him not to serve in the Muhammadu Buhari-led administration in its first two years.
While speaking to his church members in preparation for 2017, Pastor Tunde Bakare, who was President Buhari’s running mate for the 2011 presidential election under the Congress for Progressive Change (CPC), said God instructed him not to serve in the Muhammadu Buhari-led administration in its first two years.
Bakare, who is the pastor of the Latter Rain Assembly, revealed that many of his church members were mounting pressure on him to serve in the Buhari administration, adding that it is best to follow God’s instruction in a bid to achieve peace, adding that government officials must come back to God.
“Are you not glad you serve a God who can say come up here and I would show you the things that would happen in the hereafter?” Bakare asked, as he revealed what God told him.
“Here we are today, almost two years into this administration. Many of you were putting pressure on me. Even a retired inspector general of police wrote to me, he said; Pastor, if you have only served in this government, maybe it would not be like this.
“And I said to you, God said to me, don’t touch it for the first two years. Don’t go near it, just be praying for them and be watching, and be monitoring the things that are happening.
“God knows where you should go, when you should go, so stop going aimlessly about. As many as are led by the spirit of God are the sons of God.”
