Citadel:Bakare’s Associate Replies Critics Over N9Billion Wema Bank Loan

……Says We Are Still No 16 On Nigeria Political Leadership Ladder

An associate pastor of Citadel Global Community Church, CGCC, Pastor Christian Ike, has replied those criticizing its Serving Overseer, Pastor Tunde Bakare over the N9bn Loan indebtedness to the Wema Bank.

Ike, in a WhatsApp message to some members of CGCC to douse the furore generated over the news that has continued to trend on social media said Pastor Bakare has spoken about the Loan in October 25, 2021 interview granted to Thisday newspapers.

According to him, Citadel is structured in a way to pay the loan, adding that the said N9bn is being renegotiated.

As for the presidency, Ike said Bakare remains number 16 on the ladder of political headship of Nigeria and will eventually succeeded President Muhammadu Buhari as prophesied.

Below is the full text of the statement 

Do not Cry more than the bereaved. In any event, NO ONE IS BEREAVED. SO WHY THE NOISE? 

Pastor Bakare and the WEMA BANK – No Case Submission!

Sometimes, it seems people already have preconceived ideas, pictures, responses or innuendos to give on any issue; most times as a decoy to settle scores, troll on and provide cover for Hatchet Job for some desperados.

Ride on. 

Just remember to read Pastor Bakare’s Interview on This Day Newspaper of October 25, 2021, very well to have a credible information and sources for an informed argument.

Those who read and have heard him pronounce unashamedly and without any duress, but for his well known transparency and accountability culture, times without number, understood that the old building, the landed property and his personal recognition form the basis of the loan negotiation.

 Secondly, there has also been in place a re-negotiated terms of repayment with WEMA BANK, and this is on-going.

Thirdly, the facility is a structured multipurpose use to pay for itself. 

Nothing has changed from any of these established facts on the ground. 

So why the noise, why the unfounded cacophony? Save for any other hidden interests, or paid master’s jobs.

We can only save ourselves unnecessary dissipation of energy to spew tonnes of biles on readily available facts of a matter for those who care to read, know and be objective. 

Long live the New Nigeria that is bound to come!

Number 16 is our destination!

Christian Ike.
