Pastor Tunde Bakare, the running mate to President Muhammadu Buhari in the 2011 general election said God instructed him not to serve in the current Buhari led administration in its first two years.
The pastor said many of his church members were mounting pressure on him to serve in the current administration but he resisted saying ‘’it is best to follow God’s instruction in a bid to achieve peace’’. .
“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, as he revealed what God told him. .
“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, he 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. As many as are led by the spirit of God are the sons of God.”
