Bakare said God also revealed to him that most of the political juggernauts in the country would fall at the feet of women in 2018.
The serving overseer of the Latter Rain Assembly explained that God did not tell him when the appointed time to run for the presidency would be, but that he was given a divine admonition not to end his political career as he had earlier contemplated
The cleric made the statement in the early hours of Monday, January 1, during the watch night service at the Latter Rain Assembly in the Ogba area of Lagos, the Punch reports.
According to Bakare, the above statements were among the 12 major things God had revealed to him would happen in 2018.
He said: “This twelfth one is a difficult one for me. It may draw excitement or condemnation. I have tried my best to keep it (to myself) but the Holy Spirit will not allow me to do so.
“In my study around 4am on Sunday morning, God told me ‘you cannot bring your political career to a close; there is still more to do. Run for the Presidency. I will do it at the appointed time.”
“Joseph (in the Bible) did not contest an election; yet, he became the prime minister of Egypt. Why must I worry myself about where to get the resources for the task? Your own duty in this assignment is to pray along with me. When it is the appointed time, He (God) will do it. When He tells me the time, you will hear about it.”
The pastor however stopped at mentioning the names of the political juggernauts who would fall, but noted that some of those seen at the moment as among the most powerful in Nigeria’s political space, would be replaced.
“In 1998, I told you that I saw your President dying between two women. Did it happen? I’m telling you again: some of these political juggernauts will fall at the feet of women and you will see it happen,” he said
He said women would break barriers in most fields of human endeavours both in Nigeria and globally in 2018.
