In an exclusive interview with SaharaTV, Pastor Tunde Bakare, the serving Pastor and Overseer of the Latter Rain Assembly Church in Lagos, has debunked insinuations being circulated on social media that he opposes the presidential candidature of General Muhammad Buhari.
Bakare ran with Buhari in 2011 on the presidential ticket of the Congress For Progressive Change.
He explained that the audio tape being circulated was a talk he gave immediately after the last governorship election in Ondo state in 2012, saying he made it clear for those who cared to listen that he supports Buhari’s ambition any day.
Bakare, who is also the convener of the Save Nigeria Group (SNG) reiterated his total support for the APC presidential candidate, asserting that he has never wavered in his support for Buhari ever since meeting him.
The pastor, who had just arrived from a trip to the United States, told our crew that he was knowledgeable about the behind-the-scenes political horse-trading that produced Yemi Osinbajo as Buhari’s VP candidate.
The interview was conducted at the Latter Rain Assembly church in Lagos, and Pastor Bakare spoke on a variety of topics.
