The Founder of Latter Rain Assembly, Pastor Tunde Bakare, has warned Nigerians ahead of the 2019 general elections which he described as a ‘fierce one.’
Bakare stated this on Wednesday, noting that the 2019 election will be a contest between the eagle and the vulture.The outspoken cleric stated this while reacting to Atiku’s emergence as the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party,PDP, against the All Progressives Congress, APC candidate, President Muhammadu Buhari.
He further urged Nigerians to pray to God to deliver them from Vultures and Eagles in the country and let God prevail.
Bakare said: “Atiku Abubakar winning the ticket of his party and becoming a flag bearer was for me, a cheering news, in the sense that you now have to look at both candidates and say which one will you vote for. Because it’s a secret ballot, my secret remains in my heart but truth be told, I’ve been quoted copiously everywhere that I said that this is now the battle of the eagles.
“Sometimes when someone with prophetic grace speaks, others place a different interpretation on what they said. I was looking at what Jesus said In Luke and Matthew, the presentation was different. It said wherever you find the carcass, there you find the eagle. Then in Luke, he said wherever you find the body, there you find the eagle. So it’s telling you that different birds belong to the eagle family. For example, the cat belongs to the family of a lion, but the lion is different from the cat.
“Many don’t know that vultures also are part of the family of an eagle. 2019 is a contest between the eagle and the vulture and you can place your interpretation on who is the eagle and who is the vulture.
“Time will tell. Are we going back to perversity, sustained corruption or are we tired of oppression and bloodletting and we are saying God give us somebody?
“I think the right prayer to pray now is ‘Lord you rule in the affairs of men, you give it to whosoever you will, deliver us from vultures and deliver us from eagles that are not acting as eagles also.
“Talking from standpoint of the scripture, the battle is going to be fierce; it’s not going to be a run over cup of tea as it was, but I still think at the end of the day God’s will be done in our country.”
