2023 Face-Slap: You don’t have the numbers to produce next president, Tunde Bakare tells Igbos

Pastor Tunde Bakare, the Serving Overseer of the Citadel Global Community Church in Lagos, has said the South-East does not have the numbers yet, to produce a Nigeria President of Igbo extraction.

Bakare stated this on Tuesday night, during an Instagram Live session with media mogul, Dele Momodu.

According to the outspoken cleric, the Igbo would need a ‘handshake’ between the North and South, because of the way the country is structured.

“The Igbos are my brothers and sisters, God bless them, I love them and I care about them. They should also come to mainstream politics because APGA as a party cannot win a presidential election in Nigeria.

“Yes, every citizen of this country can aspire to that position regardless of ethnic personality and I will be too glad to see an Igbo president. But let us always remember that democracy is a ruthless game of numbers and if you don’t have the numbers you cannot continue to shout marginalisation.

“You should join mainstream politics and find a way of reaching out to others to form some kind of alliance or merger that will produce a victory at the poll,” Bakare said.
