Buhari told me he wants a Vice President who can hold the nation together if he dies in office- Tunde Bakare reportedly said
Popular Lagos pastor, Tunde Bakare, has said that President Buhari invited him to run with him in the 2011 Presidential
election because he believed that if he dies while in power,
he would be able to run the country just the way he wants it.
According to TheCable, Bakare said this while he was
preaching in his church last month. He said President Buhari
has a grace that anyone who betrays him pays with his or
her life.
“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 doff
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 surname) removed his cap
and said egbon, you must agree. We left the place and I
came back again and sat with him and I 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?He said to me, Pastor, you must be very funny, I have
never even thought about it. I said I am thinking. 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. So I said to him,
hear it now, ‘I will never betray you, I leave it to you to
betray me if you wish to do so’… I’m not kidding you, you
don’t know what transpired, for you, it was just
campaign”he said
