‘Nigerian Youths Will Not Be Left Out Of Govt’, Bakare Declares For Presidency


Pastor Tunde Bakare has promised to include youths in his government as the former vice presidential candidate officially declared his intention to run for the presidency in the 2023 elections. 

His official declaration was held in Abuja on Monday, days after he purchased the All Progressives Congress (APC) form for the post.

“The youth of Nigeria will no longer be left out of leadership in Nigeria: My cabinet will be one of the most intergenerational in Nigeria’s history and my administration will also vitalise the ‘Not Too Young To Run Act’ by instituting a
Presidential Young Leaders’ Programme (PYLP) that will attract, train, mentor, appoint, and back young Nigerian men and women to run for office,” he said during the event.

The cleric said his quest for the exalted seat is based on his commitment “to the realisation of a new Nigeria for every Nigerian in my lifetime”.

‘There Would Be Light!’

Pastor Tunde Bakare is promising to revamp the power sector if elected.


Bakare, who is campaigning on the four pillars of peace, progress, prosperity, and possibilities, promised to revitalise the power sector if elected as Nigeria’s leader.

“Still, on our infrastructure delivery agenda, we would execute a decentralised, private-sector driven electricity reform agenda that would see the generation of up to 100, 000 megawatts of on-grid, and off-grid electricity by 2030 as part of the Nigeria Geo-Economic Development Plan (N-GDP),” Bakare said.

According to him, this would be achieved through “broadening the national energy mix; harnessing geo-economic comparative advantages in energy generation including solar, hydro, nuclear, thermal, natural gas, biomass, wind, and other energy resources to attract competent investors within and outside the country”.

He lamented that several parts of the world have gone ahead of Nigeria in terms of power generation and distribution but vowed to change the narrative.

“There must be, at the very least, light in Nigeria. That was the first order of creation,” the preacher added.

“In Nigeria, there would be light,” the presidential aspirant maintained.
