2023 Presidency: ’I have my identity, credentials intact’ – Bakare ‘bombs’ Tinubu



The Serving Overseer of the Citadel Global Community Church, Pastor Tunde Bakare, has hit back at the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) for the 2023 election, Bola Tinubu, saying he scored zero in the ruling party’s primary election with true identity and original credentials.

CITYNEWS NIGERIA reports that Tinubu’s media handlers had scolded Bakare over his Sunday state of the nation address where he urged Nigerians to shun those promoting ‘Emilokan’, a term associated with Tinubu and which means “my turn” in Yoruba.

Tinubu’s media team had described Bakare as a paperweight politician who scored zero votes in the APC primary in June 2022.

But in a further reply, Bakare wondered why the media team decided to respond to a man they tagged a paperweight politician.

“Why are they then giving any thought to what I said? Maybe their alleged “paper-weight” is too heavy for them to carry,” Bakare told the press.

“Can someone tell these people that scoring zero in a primary election with one’s true identity and credentials intact as well having original certificates from well known schools: Primary, Secondary, colleges and University within and outside of this nation is a veritable badge of honor, absolutely legit and unquestionable.

“One of the Special Advisers that I thought had some semblance of nobility had to utter outright lies and falsehoods to satisfy his paymaster.

“He said that I did a video asking members of our church to vote for their candidate and then turn around to ask them not to vote for him.


“Unfortunately, there is no such video containing such falsehood.”

Furthermore, Bakare alleged that Tinubu’s media aides are misrepresenting his statement in the video they are circulating.

“In the said video, I never asked our members to vote or not vote for their candidate or any other candidate. By the way, our members are not zombies.

“They, by the grace of God have their own minds and will decide who to vote for on the Election Day,” the cleric cum politician said.
