I Never Endorsed Tinubu- Pastor Tunde Bakare


(AFRICAN EXAMINER) – The General Overseer of Citadel Global Community Church, formerly known as Latter Rain Assembly, Pastor Tunde Bakare, has refuted claims that he has endorsed the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, Bola Tinubu.

Pastor Bakare also refuted the reports that he criticized the Christian Association of Nigeria for speaking up against the APC’s choice of a Muslim-Muslim ticket for the 2023 presidential election and the controversial appearance of “clergymen” during the unveiling of Kashim Shettima as APC’s vice-presidential candidate.

This was contained in a statement dated Friday, and titled ‘Reffutal: The statements credited to me are outright lies’.

Pastor Bakare said, “Amongst other things, I was quoted to have said that the  agitations by the Christian Association of Nigeria, CAN, were ploys by the opposition party, PDP, to force a weak candidate on APC. In addition to this, I was alleged to have said that CAN wanted to lure APC into presenting a weak candidate.

“The spurious writers also alleged that I stressed that Christians are righteous people who behave like Christ, and that CAN are politicians who behave like PDP.



“As if the poorly strewn lies were not enough, I was quoted as saying that Tinubu is my candidate.
“Isn’t this the same Tinubu that I announced to all and sundry at the APC Presidential Convention that I was not stepping down for? He has suddenly become my candidate!

“I wish to state unequivocally that the statements are absolute lies. There was nowhere I granted anyone any interview or preached on any platform, where I said the ludicrous statements. I challenge anyone who is in possession of the video or audio file of the statements to please put it in the public space.

“For the avoidance of doubt, I am a nation builder who will not in any way create real or imaginary division among the people of our great country, through the medium of political parties or religion.”
