The Serving Overseer of Latter Rain Assembly, Pastor Tunde Bakare, has described the presidential candidate of the Allied Congress Party of Nigeria, Mrs Oby Ezekwesili, as the best alternative to the incumbent President Muhammadu Buhari and Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, who are the foremost contenders in the February 16 presidential election.
According to the cleric, among the new crop of presidential candidates seeking to upset the status quo, Ezekwesili has unmatched attributes needed to salvage Nigeria.
This was contained in Bakare’s state of the nation address delivered during the Sunday service in his church in the Ogba area of Lagos.
In the address, titled, ‘The prophetic portrait of Nigeria in her latter days,’ Bakare observed that things were so bad in the country that no one, including soldiers, would be willing to lay down their lives for the country.
This, he observed, might be the reason why the military was having a hard time in the hands of Boko Haram insurgents, apart from being poorly equipped for the fight.
He also spoke on the need to elect servant leaders and restructure the country.
