The Senior Pastor of the Citadel Global Community Church, Pastor Tunde Bakare, has denied saying that President Muhammadu Buhari has disappointed Nigerians.
Recall that during an interview on Tuesday with the publisher of Ovation Magazine, Dele Momodu, the former vice presidential candidate had said the President has failed Nigerians and not met the expectations of Nigerians.
However, while appearing on Arise News on Thursday, Bakare stated that he was misquoted during the Live Instagram interview on Tuesday.
The cleric added that the newspapers decided the headlines with which to sell their papers, adding that those were not the exact words.

He said: “I did not use the words ‘Buhari has disappointed Nigerians’. I will not ask the papers not to sell their papers using any headline. Sometimes they make their own deduction from what was spoken.
“I chose to be moderate in all that I say. Except I have concrete facts, I do not just talk.
“But Are Nigerians disappointed? It’s everywhere, every day. You see it in the news. When expectations are not met, people will express their frustrations. It is natural and normal.
“But that does not mean this administration has not done anything good at all and, therefore, should be consigned to the dustbin of history.”
