Influence Who Succeeds You – Bakare Tells Buhari
The Serving Overseer, Latter Rain Assembly, Pastor Tunde Bakare, has urged the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), not to leave the choice of who takes over from him in 2023 to chance.
In a nationwide live broadcast in his church on Sunday, Bakare, who paid Buhari a visit last week, said it was important for Buhari to influence who will emerge his successor in 2023 so that his legacies will not be destroyed.
Confirming that he would not be seeking a third term, Buhari had recently declared that he would not influence who would succeed him in 2023.
But Bakare, who had last year declared that he would succeed Buhari, said there was a risk that a looter might take over if Buhari did not deliberately plan and determine who his successor will be.
The controversial man of God said,
“God is into succession. Anyone that does not concern himself about succession is destroying his legacies.”
Bakare was Buhari’s running-mate in the 2011 general election – which they lost to incumbent Goodluck Jonathan.
He has never hidden his desire to one day occupy the number one seat in the land, as expressed in his numerous commentaries on the state of the nation.
