The General Overseer of the Household of God Church, Rev. Chris Okotie, has revealed that God instructed him to tell the ruling APC and PDP to adopt him as consensus candidate for the 2019 presidential election.
Speaking on Sunday, while declaring interest in next year’s election, Okotie said that time had come for truth and transparency in governance.
The cleric also noted that Nigeria was more divided and segregated than ever before.
Okotie said: “The dream of a great Nigeria, which flowered at independence, the yearnings and aspirations of the people and the Nigerian brotherhood whose ensign dominated the political horizon at independence, have all been consigned to oblivion.
“Times like this require the recruitment of patriotic gladiators who must now take up the gauntlet to defend the Nigerian dream.
“I have re-emerged from my political hibernation to contest for the office of president in the forthcoming elections. I am fully persuaded that Nigeria needs a man who is credible, dependable and trustworthy; a God-fearing man who will be readily embroidered with compassion and love for country who will be readily accepted as a symbol of national unity.
“I believe that the benevolent grace of God has telescoped these virtues into my person, to prepare me for such at a time as this.
“In sincere humility and deference to our democratic institutions, I appeal to the APC and PDP to subscribe to this ideal by adopting me as a consensus presidential candidate at the next elections.
“I ask the APC and PDP, respectfully, within the confines of conventional propriety, to temporise and observe a peaceful hiatus in the commonality of the Nigerian brotherhood, and embrace me as a consensus remedial facilitator.”
