Senior Pastor of the Household of God church, Chris Okotie, has declared his intention to run for president in the 2019 election.
He declared his intention to run for the presidency under the platform of the Fresh Democratic Party during a service to commemorate the nation’s Independence Day at his church yesterday October 1st.
He called on the ruling party APC and the main opposition party, PDP, to pick him as their consensus candidate.
“I want to re-affirm my call for an interim government and to ask those that are concerned, who are the political actors to consider me as a consensus candidate. I have referred to myself as a consensus remedial facilitator because of the existential threats that we have now and I think that it’s time for us to lay aside the habiliments of our political affiliations and to embrace a new nationalistic philosophy that can salvage this country at this time” he said
