Former presidential aide under Goodluck Jonathan’s government, Reno Omokri,has attacked Tunde Bakare, the overseer of Citadel Global Community Church, saying that he should not be taken seriously.
He accused the fiery cleric of lying against the Holy Spirit.
According to Omokiri, Bakare lied against the Holy Spirit in a prophecy he issued on ex-President, Olusegun Obasanjo, Ibrahim Badamosi Babangida and others
He made this statement in a response to the words Bakare issued on Bola Tinubu, National Leader of the All Progressives Congress, APC.
Bakare had said that God does not need anyone’s permission to put Tinubu in the hall of fame, stating that Southwest leaders who don’t like the former Lagos State governor’s rise should “carry their stone.”
In his reaction, Omokiri Bakare as an unstable individual who should be ignored.
In an article Omokiri sent to Daily Post, he said “Tunde Bakare is one of those who feed the false stereotype that the Yoruba are unreliable backstabbers. That stereotype is not true because some of the most reliable Nigerians have been Yoruba, including Obasanjo himself (a man who, unlike what Bakare said, has achieved more in life than Tinubu can ever dream of achieving), who returned from Copenhagen to clear his name of coup plotting charges levelled against him by Abacha, Tunde Idiagbon, who returned from Mecca after he and Buhari were overthrown by Babangida, and Adekunle Fajuyi, who chose death, rather than abandon and betray Aguiyi-Ironsi.
“I ceased taking Pastor Tunde Bakare seriously ever since he lied against the Holy Ghost by prophesying (wrongly) that “Let me tell you the truth by the spirit of God, neither OBJ, Atiku, IBB and this tall one, Buhari are part of the new. They are part of the old that is decaying. That old one is passing away. The new is emerging and these ones are not part of that new.
