BREAKING: After Scathing Sermon, Buhari meets with Tunde Bakare in Aso-Rock [PICS]

Pastor Tunde Bakare was at the State House on Friday, barely days after vowing not to visit President Muhammadu Buhari again because all his previous meetings with the Nigerian leader had yielded no good results for the Nigerian people.

The senior pastor of Citadel Global Community Church was seen in pictures with the president on Friday afternoon. President spokesman Femi Adesina shared the pictures on Facebook. 

“President Buhari receives Pastor Tunde Bakare in State House on 15th Oct 2021,” Mr Adesina wrote. 

The meeting came days after Mr Bakare said he had launched a new movement to find solutions to Nigeria’s crisis, saying he had come to realise that Mr Buhari was not the leader Nigerians anticipated. 

Weeks earlier, Mr Bakare, known for his fiery sermons, said he was in a new war with Mr Buhari for his failure to bring peace and economic succour to Nigerians.

“I’m not interested in meeting you any longer; no more visits. Now, it is war because Nigeria must be set free,” Mr Bakare said in his sermon in July 25, recounting how he was instrumental to Mr Buhari’s emergence as president in 2015. 

Previously, Mr Bakare, who was Mr Buhari’s running mate in the 2011 presidential election that they lost to Goodluck Jonathan,had said God told him Mr Buhari will come to stabilise the country.

He later issued a statement to dismiss the president as an agent of destabilisation who had little interest in the country’s prosperity. His visit to the Presidential Villa today added to several of such he had made since Mr Buhari assumed office in May 2015.
