Pastor Christopher Oghenebrorie Okotie ( Chris Okotie ) has pleaded with the APC and PDP to make him their Presidential Candidate in the coming 2019 General elections.
Pastor Chris made known His Presidency ambitions for 2019 on Sunday the 15th of July 2018 when he made the declaration to His congregation.
Okotie who has contested on three occasions and lost all three elections is at it again for yet another run saying His political ambitions has been on Hibernation and is now ready to run again.
- He lost to former President Olusegun Obasanjo in 2003 whne he first contested for Presidency,
- Also losing to former President Umaru Musa Yar’adua in 2007,
- having contested alongside Goodluck Ebele Jonathan in 2011, Pastor Chris Okotie lost again.
In His Words
He said “In sincere humility and deference to our democratic institutions, I appeal to the APC and PDP to subscribe to this ideal by adopting me as a consensus presidential candidate at the next elections.
“I ask the APC and PDP, respectfully, within the confines of conventional propriety, to temporize and observe a peaceful hiatus in the commonality of the Nigerian brotherhood, and embrace me as a consensus remedial facilitator.”
“Nigeria has become a divided and segregated society like never before.
“The dream of a great Nigeria which flowered at independence, the yearnings and aspirations of the people and the Nigerian brotherhood whose ensign dominated the political horizon at independence have all been consigned to oblivion.
“Times like this require the recruitment of patriotic gladiators who must now take up the gauntlet to defend the Nigerian dream.
“I have re-emerged from my political hibernation to contest for the office of president in the forthcoming elections. I am fully persuaded that Nigeria needs a man who is credible, dependable and trustworthy; a God-fearing man who will be readily embroidered with compassion and love for country who will be readily accepted as a symbol of national unity.
Pastor Chris believes He has gotten the Grace of God as a backup to run for Presidency and also Rule Nigeria as He stated in His words. His political ambitions especially becoming President of the Nation is still a shock to many Nigerians after losing all the 3 times He ever contested.
“I believe that the benevolent grace of God has telescoped these virtues into my person, to prepare me for such at a time as this,” he added.
Nigerians, some in their disbelief and others in their shock have been reacting to the announcement made by the Televangelist and Senior pastor of the Household of God Church International Ministries.
God willing, we wait and watch how He plans to carry out His Presidency plans in the forth coming 2019 General Elections.
