Pastor Tunde Bakare, the General Overseer of the Citadel Global Church, has expressed hope of becoming Nigeria’s President. Also called for the censorship of the social media in Nigeria.
Bakare said just as Joe Biden emerged as the United States, US, President-Elect, he would also become president.
The clergyman, who has never hidden his aspiration to become president, disclosed this in an interview with journalists, on Tuesday in Lagos State.
Speaking with a group of journalists in Lagos, Bakare said in clear terms that he will succeed President Muhammadu Buhari come 2023.
According to Bakare: “There is something called destiny. I am not one to hide under the umbrella of one finger and make ambition look like vision, I do not camouflage.
“It is not a matter of life and death, but you can write it down. As the Lord lives, and as I am given the opportunity, the day will come, like Joe Biden, that I will be the President of Nigeria.”
Bakare also said the danger of social media was enormous if not censored.
The clergyman said laws should be enacted to guide the conduct of social media in the country.
Addressing journalists yesterday in Lagos State, Bakare noted that there must be freedom with boundaries in Nigeria.
He said: “There is no free freedom anywhere in the world; there must be freedom with boundary.
“I am not saying curtail them or we can’t use social media in Nigeria. But there is no nation where there are no balances.
“For instance, look at the picture of a drama that was shot somewhere else but was used to say soldiers have killed protesters. Those things can grieve and create troubles.”
He, however, urged the government to listen to Nigerians and make laws “that will be beneficial” to all citizens.
“But we cannot be draconian; we are not going back to Decree 4,” he said.
Bakare had declared that he would become Nigeria’s president.
