Divine Direction? - "I’ll be next governor of Lagos"says Pastor

A Lagos-based pastor, Mr. Kayode Jacobs, says he has been chosen by God to become the next governor of Lagos State.

He admitted that although he had little money, he could defeat the Minister of State for Defence, Senator Musiliu Obanikoro; and Jimi Agbaje to clinch the governorship ticket of the Peoples Democratic Party.

Jacobs, who runs Family and Relationships Ministry in Lagos, said he had been in politics for over 20 years having worked with a former Minister of Information, Mr. Dapo Sarunmi.

The pastor, who is an indigene of Badagry, said he had the backing of a large number of pastors in the state as well as massive grass roots following in 57 Local Government Areas and Local Council Development Areas.

He said, “This is my David moment. You see, nobody expected David to become king of Israel because he was the last son but when God would favour him, he picked him from obscurity. I am sure that God’s favour will see me through.”

When asked why he was gunning for governorship instead of lower political positions, the journalist turned pastor, said the governorship position was the only office he could make a huge impact.

He said, “I don’t want to be a senator or a House of Representatives member because I don’t want to be debating and making laws. I need a position whereby I can make a direct impact on the lives of the people. Also, this was the position I was directed to contest for.”

Jacobs said Governor Babatunde Fashola’s policies were not people-friendly. He said Fashola’s government only favoured the rich while the poor were neglected.

He noted that Fashola’s achievements in terms of public infrastructure would not stand the test of time.
