05 January 2017, 20:17

Lagos -  The Pastor of Latter Rain Assembly, Tunde Bakare, has disclosed that God directed him to stay away from the President Muhammadu Buhari – led administration for two years.

Bakare, who was Buhari’s running mate in the 2011 presidential election stated this to his church members in preparation for 2017.

Bakare according to Cable, however, insisted that it is best to follow God’s instruction.

He advised government officials “to come back to God”.
