2019: Chris Okotie Is Serious, He Wants To Be President
When the Senior Pastor of Household of God Church and former presidential aspirant Reverend Chris Okotie said he wanted to be president in July this year, Nigerians thought he was joking.
Then he encouraged both the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) and the All Progressive Congress (APC) to adopt him as their presidential candidate, but Nigerians still seemed not to have taken him seriously despite making three failed attempts – 2003, 2007 and 2011 – to become the country’s number one citizen.
Okotie has announced yet again that he’ll be running for president in the 2019 general elections.
Okotie made this known during a service to commemorate Nigeria’s independence.
“I want to re-affirm my call for an interim government and to ask those that are concerned, who are the political actors to consider me as a consensus candidate.
''I have referred to myself as a consensus remedial facilitator because of the existential threats that we have now and I think that it’s time for us to lay aside the habiliments of our political affiliations and to embrace a new nationalistic philosophy that can salvage this country at this time” he said.
