The cleric spoke during the Sunday service at his church saying the dreams and aspirations of the people having been confined to oblivion and he believes that we must act now to defend the Nigerian dream as things have gone to a worse state.
He said that he has decided to return to politics seeing that Nigeria needs a credible personality one who is intellectually ready and capable. He added that the Nigerian constitution is obsolete and therefore desires to pursue a mandate that will set up a new government of reconciliation.
Some days ago, I wrote a letter to the chairmanship of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Adams Oshiomhole and Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Uche Secondus, asking them not to field any Presidential candidate, that they should adopt me,” he said.
Pastor Chris Okotie said that this is not out of his will but that of the Lord. He noted that Nigeria is a crying nation that needs liberation. The solution to Nigeria’s problem does not lie on APC or PDP, adding, “This is the beginning of the complete turnaround of our nation”
