Pastor Chris Okotie: God Told Me To Run For President In 2015 Chris Okotie

For the Head Pastor, Household of God Church International Ministries there is no such thing as quitting. Despite losing the presidential election twice, the dream to become Nigeria’s president has not faded.

Rev. Okotie, nursing a strong presidential ambition , announced his intention to become Nigeria’s number one citizen in 2015.

In a exclusive interview with The Punch, Rev. Okotie said he will run in 2015, God willing.

“God spoke to me about my participation in the political process, which was why I took the step in the first place. He has not said anything contrary.’’, Rev. Okotie said.

When he was reminded that he had always lost every election he took part in by the reporters, Rev. Okotie explained that he had lost those elections as a result of election malpractices carried out,

He said, “I can sum it up in one word-rigging by the PDP. Even one of the party’s stalwarts, Chief Adeseye Ogunlewe, told The PUNCH recently that all elections have always been rigged. So that answers the question.

“These election questions are inter-related. If they didn’t rig, then I could have won. Apart from election malpractices, the duty of a servant of God is to obey his master when he gives him instructions, irrespective of whether he fails or succeeds. Like Moses in the Bible, who kept fighting until Pharaoh released the Israelites.’’
