A notable lagos-based preacher, Pastor Tunde Bakare, has asked the Presidency to address the rumors surrounding Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo.
Bakare who is is currently the Serving Overseer, Dominion Hall, Citadel Global Community Church (formerly Latter Rain Assembly) said this while delivering a sermon on Sunday.
There have been reports in the last couple of months about a strained relationship between Osinbajo and the cabal at the Presidency which led to the sacking and redeployment of some of the Vice-President’s aides.
Osinbajo was also relieved of some of his duties such as overseeing the Social Investment Programme and the economic advisory team.
Bakare, however, said there was a need for the Presidency to speak up and address this issues.
He said, “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, who was running mate to the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), in 2011, said he never begged to be Buhari’s running mate.
He said no one could relegate him having “gained access” to the mountain.
