Femi Fani-Kayode has attacked Pastor Tunde Bakare over his affectionate care for the National leader of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu.
Bakare had attacked some of the Yoruba elders who are bent on obstructing Tinubu ahead of the 2023 presidency, saying they were jealous of his achievement.
Bakare said “I have a word for those Yoruba rancorous elements, noisemakers who have not achieved as much as Asiwaju Tinubu has achieved, but are always querying and worrying themselves about his ancestry.
“Those who are envious of Mr. Tinubu and those who desire to take his power slot should stop their useless talk about him, and busy themselves with what can add value to society”.
Fani-Kayode has reacted to the speech of Bakare who once said Tinubu would give details of all his deeds, now suddenly turned to praise the same man he once disgraced.
Fani Kayode said he was astonished by Bakare’s word and always wondered what could have made him switch in such an inglorious manner?.
“I regarded his new-found and newly-cultivated grovelling and sycophantic assertions about Tinubu as being not only self-serving, arrogant, pitiful and condescending but also a desecration of the pulpit”.
Fani-Kayode said it was Tinubu who forced Buhari on the nation and the people of the Southwest in 2015, saying he should share in the blame of the downturn of the Buhari administration.
He said for Bakare to support Tinubu, it meant a lot and he have issue a warning to Bakare not to drag the Yoruba people into his new found love.
However, Kayode also included that tinubu has not done justice to himself and his fake moves on the nation.
I am constrained to ask, why this sudden u-turn on Jagaban? Is there something he knows today that he did not know one year ago? If so can he possibly share it with us so that we can possibly consider doing a volte face too? Or is that they have something on him?” He asked.
“The ‘sakabular’ pastor is encouraging the young ones to loot, steal, engage in fraudulent acts, sell drugs, do passport racketeering in their youth as these will not count against them in the future. Rubbish from the pulpit. Shame on him,” he added.
