The video in which the Senior Pastor of Latter Rain Assembly, Tunde Bakare, declared himself as the successor of President Muhammadu Buhari has gone viral again.

The video resurfaced amid the news of the falling out of Yemi Osinbajo (SAN) with President Muhammadu Buhari and the move by a cabal within Aso Rock to replace the Vice President with a popular pastor of southwest origin.

Both Bakare and Osinbajo are from Osun State, with the incumbent Vice President belonging to the Redeemed Christian Church of God, which has Pastor Enoch Adejare Adeboye as the General Overseer, Worldwide.

In the sermon by Bakare, which those who attend Latter Rain Assembly said was around January 2019 but certainly before the 2019 presidential election, which Buhari as the candidate of the All Progressives Congress, the fiery pastor said in the political ladder of the country, the President was number 15, while he was number 16.

Bakare said in part in the sermon: “Take it to the mountain top, if you have never heard it before I’m saying it to you this morning, in the scheme of things as far as the politics of Nigeria is concerned, President Muhammadu Buhari is number 15 and yours sincerely number 16.

“I never said that to you before.

“I never said that to you before.

“I make it plain this morning.

“I let you know it this morning.

“Nothing can change it in the Name of Jesus.

“He is number 15, I am number 16.

“To this end was I born and for this purpose came I into the world.

“I prepared you for this for more than 30 years.

“That is why if he wants to run in 2019, I do not oppose.

“He’s still number 15.

“It is when he steps out that I step in.

“His assignment is that of Moses: to take Nigeria to River Jordan.

“But he can’t cross it.

“It will take a Joshua to go to the other side and begin to distribute resources to the people of this nation.”

Indeed when the news of the move to replace Osinbajo broke, virtually all eyes turned in the direction of Bakare, who was once Buhari’s running mate for the presidency.

They lost.

With the report by Saturday Tribune over the weekend that Osinbajo is to be replaced by a South West pastor, the video then went viral again, suggesting that if Bakare replaces the Vice President, he is just a step away from replacing Buhari as president in 2023.

Documentary On Oshiomhole’s ‘Dark Side’ Out January 30 —- Edo Ex-Speaker

The immediate past speaker of the Edo State House of Assembly, Alhaji Kabiru Adjoto, says he is set to release a three-hour documentary, “exposing Mr. Adams Oshiomhole’s dark waters.”

But the Oshiomhole camp says the former Edo governor has done no wrong.

Speaking in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Benin on Monday, Adjoto said the documentary would be shown to the public on Jan. 30 in Abuja.

Adjoto, who described Oshiomhole as his long-time political confidant, said the documentary would expose Oshiomhole’s “dirty malfeasance in his days as governor of Edo State.

He said that the documentary was part of his planned nationwide campaign against Oshiomhole, who is currently the national chairman of the ruling APC.

Adjoto disclosed that the three-hour documentary highlighted some shady deals allegedly carried out by Oshiomhole in Edo’s Central Hospital contract and the N30 billion Benin Storm Water project.

The former speaker named other questionable projects executed during the Oshiomhole era as the airport road contract and some other transactions, handled by Oshiomhole at the tail end of his administration.

“The problem I have with Oshiomhole is not personal but a disagreement over the reversal of initially professed democratic principles.

“Every atom of principle he preached and benefited from is a sharp contrast to what he is championing today.”

Adjoto claimed that he had the backing of critical APC stakeholders, including seven governors, whom he said, had thrown their weight behind the ‘Oshiomhole must-go-campaign, which he said, would hit the streets soon.

Commenting on the forthcoming Edo APC governorship primaries, the APC chieftain reiterated that any team sent by Oshiomhole to conduct the primaries would be vehemently rejected.

He said that the rejection of Oshiomhole was because the APC national chairman had been suspended from the party and that he lacked constitutional powers to preside over any affair of the party.

“Oshiomhole should be ready for a Zamfara showdown in Edo State if he makes an attempt to spearhead the primary process because he is behind the crisis bedeviling the party in Edo State.’’

He said that Oshiomhole’s suspension from the party had been ratified in his ward, local government and the state’s executive committee of the party.

The former lawmaker noted that the incumbent, governor, Mr Godwin Obaseki, must enjoy the right of first refusal during the primaries, otherwise the process would be enmeshed in catastrophe.

He disclosed further that he would be meeting with notable traditional rulers in Oshiomhole’s senatorial zone, including the Otaru of Auchi, to inform them of the looming consequences that would face the “suspended national chairman of the party if he failed to retrace his steps.

“Without mincing words, the next few weeks will be very interesting.

“After the release of the Oshiomhole documentary, Nigerians would judge if he’s qualified to lead a party, whose principal trademark is fighting corruption,” Adjoto added.

He advised the four APC governorship aspirants against falling into what he called “Oshiomhole’s crafty political web’’.

Adjoto said he would meet with the aspirants to make them see the reason to queue behind Obaseki for the common good of Edo people.

But reacting to allegations of fraud against Oshiomhole, a member of the Oshiomhole camp, Mr Henry Idahagbon, said that Obaseki and the current Secretary to the Edo Government, Mr Osarodion Ogie, should also be included in any fraud charge against Oshiomhole.

Idahagbon, who was Attorney-General and Commissioner for Justice during Oshiomhole’s administration said that every project executed during Oshiomhole’s era was approved by Obaseki as the chairman of the administration’s economic team.

He said that the contracts cited by Adjoto were over 90 percent completed by Oshiomhole before he left office, dismissing accusations against the APC national chairman as unfounded.

Edo State is set for governorship elections in August this year.
