Pastor Tunde Bakare, founder of Citadel Global Church, has declared readiness to contest the 2023 presidency.
Pastor Bakare made his intentions to contest in the 2023 presidential election known during an interview with Arise TV on Monday, stressing that he has the right to run for any elective office.
“It is my fundamental right to run if I chose to. I mean every word I spoke. I cannot fold my hand or say well, let me continue to watch. No!” the cleric said.
“I am a citizen of this country, born and bred here by the grace of God and I intend to contribute my quota. It is like a matter of life and death.”
Speaking further, Pastor Bakare said he is hopeful that Nigerians would support him, adding that he cannot impose himself on the people.
“I am not taking those words back. I have something to offer my country,” he said.
“But it is all left for my country to say we want you because I cannot impose myself on them. I challenge right-thinking patriots to rise and let us join hands to fix our country. If God designs it that I will be the 16th president in 2023, I’m ready. I’m prepared.”
