Lagos based preacher, and senior pastor of the Latter Rain Assembly, Tunde Bakare, has reacted to the recent allegations against the Vice President, Professor Yemi Osinbajo.
Pastor Bakare, in a sermon on Sunday at his church in the Ogba area of Lagos, said he found it difficult to believe the corruption claims against Professor Osinbajo.
“Every man will care about what bothers him most or bites him hardest,” said the clergyman.
He added, “My concern presently is that come rain come shine, the Vice President, Professor Yemi Osinbajo, must not be disgraced and humiliated out of office, except he has truly violated his oath of office which I find difficult to believe.”
Recall that the Vice President recently denied claims made by a former chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Mr Timi Frank, that the Federal Inland Revenue Service (FIRS) provided N90 billion as campaign funds for him during the 2019 elections.
To further prove that the allegations were false, Professor Osinbajo vowed to waive his constitutional immunity and take legal action against his accuser while Mr Frank said he was not scared of going to court.
Speaking about the recent travails of the Vice President, Pastor Bakare said that Prof Osinbajo will have the last laugh over his present predicaments in the presidency.
He also cleared the air over the widely spread notion deduced from an old message he preached about his ambition of becoming Nigeria’s next president.
Pastor Bakare said the online video was an old message he preached which is now being used to drive an agenda about the current situation surrounding Professor Osinbajo.
The preacher explained that God recently showed him a vision about Nigeria of a rainbow indicating a reset across the land.
Bakare, 64, has always spoken about his desire to lead Nigeria someday.
He was President Muhammadu Buhari’s running mate in the 2011 presidential election on the platform of the then Congress for Progressive Change (CPC).
Buhari polled second, garnering 12, 214,853 votes behind eventual winner and then-incumbent President Goodluck Jonathan who polled 22,495,187.
Thereafter, the duo of Bakare and Buhari fell apart, with the clergyman recently dismissing President Buhari’s anti-corruption war as a selective endeavor and faulting his handling of the economy as shabby.
