The General Overseer of the Latter Rain Assembly, Pastor Tunde Bakare, on Tuesday said that he trusted the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, Maj. Gen. Muhammadu Buhari (retd.) but not the credibility of “his environment”.
“Yes I trust Buhari and this is because I have worked closely with him but I doubt his environment. The Peoples Democratic Party and the All Progressives Congress, which one is really clean? Only God can give us true leaders,” Bakare said.
The pastor spoke while addressing Christians at the annual Lenten lecture of the Island Club in Lagos.
“I believe in contact without contamination,” he said.
Bakare, who was the running mate of Buhari on the platform of the Congress for Progressive Change in the 2011 presidential election, said he was not a politician but a nation-builder.
He said, “If General Buhari wins, let President Goodluck Jonathan accept defeat. Whoever loses is not a loser and if the winner is President Goodluck Jonathan, Buhari should accept this as the will of God.
“The 2015 election is a serious crossroad and we might be playing with fire but with wisdom and prayer, we shall end well.
“ I am not a politician; I am not a PDP nor APC member. I am a nation-builder. Whoever I support is not the issue, God’s will must prevail. My loyalty is first to God and to my country but God knows Nigeria’s next president.”
Speaking on fasting, he urged Christians in the country to examine the true spirit behind the Lenten fast, saying fasting was not an antidote to problems but an opportunity to submit to the will of God.
The pastor attributed the wrong attitude of Christians to fasting to biblical illiteracy, saying that true fasting ordained by God was explained in Isaiah 58, highlighting the need to help the poor and be led by God to observe it.
