The official overseer of the Citadel Global Community Church, formerly known as the Last Rain Assembly (LRA), Pastor Tunde Bakare, said National Progressive Congress (APC) leader Asiwaju Bola Tinubu used his political skill to win the 2015 entertainment elections and 2019.
Bakare said this while speaking at the recently discovered church fortress in Lagos.
According to him, God does not need anyone’s approval to place Tinubu in His house of fame.
The fiery priest compared Tinubu to Jephthah in the Bible, who delivered his people despite the circumstances of his birth.
“Listen to me loud and clear, knowing the name of Asiwaju’s mother or father or his place of birth, he can neither put food on the table of the hungry nor open a job for the unemployed.
“Despite the challenges of growing up, the pitfalls and detours of his life, he, like Jephthah, saved the state of Lagos and almost all the countries of the southwest from the onslaught of the PDP from 1999 to 2007.
“Truth be told, without his cooperation and political skill, the APC’s victories at the polls in 2015 and 2019 would have been impossible,” Bakare said.
He further insisted that he was not Tinubu’s brand manager, but all he knew was that “just as every saint has a past, every sinner has a future.”
