Tunde Bakare, serving overseer of the Latter Rain Assembly, has revealed that Pres. Buhari chose him as running mate in 2011, because he wanted a vice-president who can hold the nation together if he dies in power.

Both men contested the election under the platform of the then CPC. Addressing his congregants in Ogba, Lagos, last month, Bakare said Buhari rejected former Pres. Obasanjo’s choice of Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, former minister of finance.

He said all what transpired during that period had been documented in the book: ‘Strategic Intervention in Governance’, a book he authored. “After I was called and I went to Abuja, and I sat with Mr President or General Buhari then, I said why me?

‘I’m not a politician’, ‘I do not belong to any political party’, ‘I am not carrying card of any party, why me’? “He gave me all the reasons, they are written in the book; Strategic Intervention in Governance.

He gave three reasons, but the one that made everyone around me that day to dove their hats was when he said: I am not as young as you think, and even Yar’Adua that is younger is dead.

“In case I die, I know you can hold the nation together. That was when Jim (he didn’t give his surrname) removed his cap and said egbon, you must agree.”

Bakare said on another day, he sat with Buhari and said, “Sir, I need to understand something before I do anything. Every running mate of yours, including the one that was even your deputy in the military, is dead.

“Ume-Ezeoke is dead, Okadigbo is dead, Idiagbon is dead, I am not about to die?” Bakare said Buhari told him; “Pastor, you must be very funny, I have never even thought about it.”

“I knew he had nothing to do with their deaths, but that man carries a dimension of grace that if you deal with him, and betray him, you pay with your life,” Bakare said. “So I said to him, hear me now, ‘I will never betray you.”

  7. He is trying to say pmb is dead…. Or is he saying that if pmb die, he (bakare) should be held responsible

  8. Even most of this our pastors can not be trusted today buhari say tomorrow buhari did not say. If u called to be a savant of God the do it well and if u want to be a politician then politician well. I know that politicians are very Conny and not strait forward so if a man of God is into such that means he is also not a trust worthy person. Buhari said this to pastor and pastor kept it away from everyone. Why then are u saying it out now if u know hat buhari is alive. God go judge every body soon and not until we die oo na here him go start
