He said: “Like Jephthah the Gileadite, he has fought many battles on behalf of the Yoruba people and won despite his rough beginning and God does not need anybody’s permission to put such in his hall of fame despite their past deeds and ancestry.
“Despite his growing up challenges, the dents and the detours of his life, he like Jephthah delivered Lagos State and nearly all the southwest states from the onslaught of the PDP from 1999 to 2007.
“Truth be told, without his cooperation and political dexterity, the APC victory at the polls in 2015 and 2019 would have been impossible,” the preacher cum politician said.
“I have a word for some Yoruba people whose stock in trade is nothing but a rancorous noise characterised by bitterness and resentment about the ancestry of the former two-term governor of Lagos state, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu.
“Carry your stone. I have a word for those Yoruba rancorous elements, noisemakers who have not achieved much as Asiwaju Tinubu has achieved, but are always querying and worrying themselves about his ancestry,” he said.
Speaking further, Bakare declared that Tinubu who served as the governor of Lagos between 1999 and 2007 has remained the most influential politician in the state since then.
The preacher added that those who are envious of 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.”
He said he is neither Tinubu’s manager nor a friend to anyone, but “he is like the rain who falls on the just and the wicked.”
