The General overseer of Latter Rain, Pastor Tunde Bakare has reacted to calls as to why he isn’t serving in President Buhari’s cabinet.
Bakare was President Buhari’s running mate in the 2011 general elections.
Responding to the querry, Pastor Bakare said God told him not to serve in Buhari’s led administration until after 2 years.
The cleric said many of his church members were mounting pressure on him to serve in the current administration.
The Fiery Lagos pastor resisted saying that “It is best to follow God’s instruction in a bid to achieve peace’’.
He urged government officials to come back to God so as to achieve sustainable development in the country.
“Are you not glad you serve a God who can say come up here and I would show you the things that would happen in the hereafter?” Bakare asked.
“Here we are today, almost two years into this administration.
“Many of you were putting pressure on me.
“Even a retired inspector general of police wrote to me.
“The retired IG said ‘Pastor, if you have only served in this government, maybe it would not be like this.’”
“And I said to you, God said to me, don’t touch it for the first two years.
“Don’t go near it, just be praying for them and be watching, and be monitoring the things that are happening.
“God knows where you should go, when you should go, so stop going aimlessly about.
