The Serving Overseer, Dominion Hall, Citadel Global Community (formerly known as Latter Rain Assembly) Pastor Tunde Bakare has called on the Presidency to address the alleged face-off between Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo and some cabals in President Muhammadu Buhari’s government.
There were sepculations in some quarters over alleged rift between the Osinbajo and some cabals which fuelled the withdrawal of some of his aides.
Speaking on Sunday, the Lagos-based clergyman said it was imperative for the presidency to break the silence over the issue.
His words: “It is my considered opinion that all the rumour mills and things going around the Vice-President in this nation, the government must address this country and tell the plain truth about what is going on instead of letting people to continue to make guesses that are unprofitable for our nation or anybody.
“And if they don’t want to say anything, then let them not say but stop this nonsense that is going on. You have a moral responsibility to account for the mess that is going on if you don’t stop it.”
Bakare, went on address circumstances that made him emerge Buhari’s running mate in 2011, explaining he did not beg for the position.
“I didn’t apply to be running mate. I was minding my business when I was called. They gave me access into the mountain and you can’t check me out of the place. No,” he said.
On Osinbajo’s emergence as Buhari’s running mate in 2015, the cleric said: “I am not sure Osinbajo was a party man. I am not sure he was there when the APC was being formed. I moved the motion for the merger of the CPC and the ACN at the Eagle Square. He was not anywhere around there that day. In fact, I can tell you that he went to the Supreme Court to argue a case on that day when they were looking for him… one day I will tell you the story of what transpired that night.
“Until the kings of the mountain give you access, you cannot do anything on that mountain. But when they give you access, you must know how to carry yourself upon the mountain.”
