Reverend Chris Okotie has announced that he would be running for the office of President of Nigeria in 2019 under the platform of Fresh Democratic Party.
He made this announcement on Monday at the Household of God church during a service to commemorate the nation’s Independence Day at the Household of God Church.
He also seized the opportunity to reach out to other political parties to adopt him as a 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”.
