The Senior Pastor of Household of God Church who has contested in the last three presidential elections in Nigeria, Rev. Chris Okotie, has urged all leading political parties in Nigeria to adopt him as their presidential candidate in the forthcoming general elections.
Speaking to media representatives on Saturday at the church headquarters in Lagos, Okotie stated that “in sincere humility and deference to our democratic institutions, I appeal to the APC (All Progressives Congress) to subscribe its support to this ideal by adopting me as a consensus presidential candidate at the next elections.
“I ask the APC respectively 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. This, of course, is tantamount to a paradigm shift and the only way forward. I have extended the same overtures to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).”
He said his mandate is to set up an interim government which tenure will be determined by all political stakeholders.

He argued that the present democracy has been hijacked by elitism, mysticism and Satanism.
“Aboriginal democracy will focus on cultural historicity, evolutional modernity and global relativity as the necessary ingredients of our evolutional political indigenisation. Under this system, the current legislature would be merged with the judiciary to create a unique judicature that administers justice and shares the enactment of legislative responsibilities with the Presidency,” he said.
He argued that such system will save the country the huge cost of running the national assembly.
