Pastor Tunde Bakare
Serving overseer of Citadel Global Community Church, formerly known as Latter Rain Assembly (LRA), Pastor Tunde Bakare has dared a former minister of aviation Femi Fani-Kayode to “expose” him for speaking glowingly of a former governor of Lagos Bola Tinubu.
Bakare had last week likened Tinubu to Jephthah in the Bible who delivered his people despite the circumstances of his birth.
Mr Fani-Kayode then wrote a scathing article titled ‘Who is squeezing Bakare’s balls?’ In the article, he wondered if the clergyman was being blackmailed to turn around to praise Tinubu after being known to be the former governor’s critic.
Reacting to the ex-minister’s comments, Bakare in an open letter sent to the national publicity secretary of Yoruba socio-political group, Afenifere, Yinka Odumakin, dared Fani-Kayode to publish whatever he has on him.
“I have only one appeal to make through you to him: Tell him to expose my supposed ‘ugly past of 1990’ he must know about and the shady deals involving some bank that just changed hands that involved me in any shape or manner,” the cleric wrote.
“If Femi does not do so as soon as possible then he has published deliberate falsehood about me. I will await this publication soonest.
“For the sake of Femi’s mother, who I ministered Christ to in their Papa home while Femi himself was still in the grip of Satan, I will hold my peace for now.
“My last word to you and to the likes of Femi is that 10,000 times 10,000 of Tinubu or any one for that matter has nothing on me to make me say the words I spoke for and against him either in the past or now.
“If you or him or any other person know of any shady deal that I have done with any individual, corporation or government, please feel free to publish it.”
Meanwhile, Fani-Kayode responded to the open letter, urging Bakare to address him directly.
