The serving Overseer of the Citadel Global Church, Pastor Tunde Bakare has reiterated that his 2023 presidential bid is not a do or die affair.
While speaking with Journalists on Tuesday, he , expressed optimism that he will succeed President Muhammadu Buhari in 2023, but that his ambition was not a do-or-die affair.
Recall that in May, Bakare declared his intention to contest the 2023 Presidency, noting that he was eminently qualified for the office.
Bakare, who clocks 66 on November 11, demanded for the reinvention of a new Nigeria, where selflessness will be the driving force for nation-building.
The fiery cleric said he was not camouflaging to make his ambition look like a vision, adding that he would one day be sworn in as the President of Nigeria.
Tunde Bakare said: “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.”
“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.
“But we cannot be draconian; we are not going back to Decree 4. We must do things decently and orderly, listen to the people and formulate laws that will be beneficial to all of us.”
