Nigerians React As Rev Chris Okotie Officially Joins 2019 Presidential Race


The founder and Senior Pastor of Household of God Church Reverend Chris Okotie has joined the 2019 presidential race.

Okotie declared his intention to run for the presidency under the platform of the Fresh Democratic Party on Monday, during a service to commemorate the nation’s Independence Day at the Church.

The charismatic cleric, who contested the 2007 presidential elections and lost, also seized the opportunity to reach out to other political parties to adopt him as a consensus candidate.

He said, “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”.

Meanwhile, here’s what some Nigerians are saying about his declaration for Presidency.

If you don’t think Chris Okotie is better than Buhari, you are problematic.
Buhari is the lowest point in Nigerian history; an aged, bigoted, wicked character.
He is the least qualified candidate and you rate him above Okotie?
