Pastor Tunde Bakare says he is not expecting a ministerial appointment.
Daily Post reports that Bakare made the statement during an interview with Sahara TV.
He reportedly stated:
“As far as I am concerned, I am not expecting to be named a minister. If I am offered an appointment, when I get to that bridge, I will cross it. I am already a minister of the gospel. Ministry is my calling and my life. The word minister means servant. When you expect nothing, you cannot be disappointed.
I keep on doing what I am doing, to be a solid supporter of the Buhari movement and what he stands for in public life. I have no regret on what I did in 2011. If an opportunity presents itself, I will do it again. I am not seeking anything.
Let’s not count chickens before they are hatched. The Bible says the expectation of the righteous will not be cut off. That is when the expectation of the righteous is in tandem with God’s expectation. If you are expecting from God, the flesh can fail. Who knows tomorrow? In the next two months, when the ministers would be named, what if nobody is here or alive?”
He is also said to have lauded President Buhari’s style of governance, stating “slow and steady wins the race.”
