The General Overseer of Citadel Global Community Church, Pastor Tunde Bakare, has praised the impact of the national leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu, on Nigeria politics.
Speaking at the church’s recently unveiled Citadel in Lagos, Pastor Bakare insisted that the APC would not have won the 2015 and 2019 presidential election without the political sagacity of Tinubu.
According to the popular clergyman, the APC chieftain delivered Lagos and the South-west from the onslaught of the PDP from 1999 to 2007.
Bakare who likened Bola Tinubu to Jephtaph in the Bible who delivered his people despite the circumstances of his birth stressed that God does not need anyone’s permission to put the former governor of Lagos in his hall of fame.
“Like Jephthah the Gileadite, he has fought many battles on behalf of the Yoruba people and won despite his rough beginning and God does not need anybody’s permission to put such in his hall of fame despite their past deeds and ancestry.

“Despite his growing up challenges, the dents and the detours of his life, he like Jephthah delivered Lagos State and nearly all the southwest states from the onslaught of the PDP from 1999 to 2007.
“Truth be told, without his cooperation and political dexterity, the APC victory at the polls in 2015 and 2019 would have been impossible,” the preacher cum politician said.
Speaking about the ancestry of Mr. Tinubu, Mr. Bakare said those that have scores to settle should “carry their stone.”
