The General Overseer of the Latter Rain Assembly, Pastor Tunde Bakare, has described Gen Muhammadu Buhari, the All Progresives Congress presidential candidate as a man of integrity who will do the country proud if elected in the March 28 election.
He spoke yesterday at the annual lenten talk/choral renditions and breaking of fast programme organised by the Island Club.
The cleric who was the guest speaker of the event, spoke on the topic: The Origin of Lent and God’s Chosen Fast.
Speaking, he said, “ Buhari is a man of integrity. I worked with him and found out that he is a man of integrity. I have no doubt that he will do us a lot of good if he is elected. The last time I took APC was when I was in the primary school. If APC will cure our headache so be it,” he said.
He took exceptions to being addressed as a politician, saying: “I am not a politician nor am I a card carrying member of any political party. I am a nation building.
“May the one that God has chosen win the election. Whoever loses the election is not a loser. If President Jonathan loses, he should accept it and see himself as a constitutional change agent.”
He enjoined the electorates to avoid being used for electoral violence adding “ if you want to die because of any politicians, you must know that children of politicians won’t die for you or your children.”
Quoting from the book of prophet Isaiah 58:6-12, tasked Christians to “eschew self- imposed, man made religious fast and abide by the prophecy of Isaiah which encapsulates God’s chosen fast.”
