January 19, 2014 – Rev. Chris Okotie Hopes To Become Nigeria’s President One Day “Delay Is Not Denial”
The controversial founder and Pastor in charge of Household of God church in Lagos, Chris Okotie who said God told him to contest for the upcoming 2015 Nigerian Presidential election after 3 loses has spoken on why he is going to run again.
In this recent interview with Punch, Chris Okotie said:
Those who opine that my presidential ambition is a dramatic serialisation of a political whim are indeed the unintelligent who seek to fathom the Okotie enigma. I consider such people a necessary comic relief from the tedium of the day. Why would I jeopardise my life, deplete my domestic economy, engage political rascals, hoodlums and brigands and threaten the stability of my ecclesiastical responsibility if I’m not fully persuaded that this a heavenly calling? My only reply to these gainsayers is, delay is no denial.
On why he uses armed bodyguards, Okoties said:
Yes, there have been threats. And you know the days are evil, so we need to be more circumspect. The Bible says wisdom is profitable to direct.
