Household of God Church Pastor Chris Okotie has returned to partisan politics as he seeks to contest for president in next year’s general election.
He announced the intention at a news conference in his church yesterday, saying he was motivated to return because of the dashed dreams and aspirations of the people.
Okotie said: “In sincere consideration, I humbly and sincerely ask that the All Progressives Congress (APC) adopt me as the presidential candidate. I have extended the same gesture to the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) too. This is the time to demonstrate our love for this country.”
He said things had gone from bad to worse in the country. He said Nigeria needs a credible personality, who is intellectually ready and capable.
He said the Nigerian constitution is obsolete, adding that he would set up a government of reconciliation.
Okotie concluded when he said his aspiration is not out of his will, but that of the Lord.
