Pastor Chris Okotie, a Senior Pastor of the Household of God Church, has again declares intention to run for 2019 presidency.
This time, Chris Okotie has appealed to the All Progressives Congress (APC) and the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to adopt him as their consensus presidential candidate in 2019.
He said “In sincere humility and deference to our democratic institutions, I appeal to the APC and PDP to subscribe to this ideal by adopting me as a consensus presidential candidate at the next elections.
“I ask the APC and PDP, respectfully, within the confines of conventional propriety, to temporise and observe a peaceful hiatus in the commonality of the Nigerian brotherhood, and embrace me as a consensus remedial facilitator.”
Okotie said this on Sunday, July 15, 2018 in his church, while announcing his desire to run for President in 2019.
